Pick a time frame for a bias.

Overlays, if using for direction, make sure you can see the full picture.
Using a ema, sema, whatever you want, you need to see the analysis
on a specific time frame...this is why I switch time frames vs using overlays, im not that gifted!

When things get slow or ranges shrink, and you just cant stand it...you need to trade, make a plan for it....

you cant get where you want to go without it.
Everyones is different!

5 min works too as long as I know the plan ahead of time.

:wink:

I hope something here helps you guys. One thing I have learned is expressing it in a multitude of different ways will eventually click for others.

I will never forget the day and how stupid I felt when I finally got close above, close below. (my interpetation, of what MO said or wrote) and could see due to a drawing from Dragon on price action. Those two pieces of the puzzle changed my trading.

Kudos to PRO also for getting me to start looking with my eyes, not the brain!

:P

There are two forces acting upon us: Suffering pushes us forward from behind and pleasures entice us and pull us forward.

IME it's not as easy as everyone keeps making out. Look
Image

There was no long, it was last thing on a Friday, the trade was a short.
Where the zones are depends on how far back you're going to look - as I keep asking, how old does a zone have to be for you to still consider it valid. Zones on different timframes are all the same it's just a matter of when they occurred - compressed data innit.
Either that or previous zones are not considered at all and all that is looked at is what is happening now on the chart you are looking it with the close above close below idea.
I do see how, like Doji says, though that sticking to the one TF view can help clarify.
