Well I'd vote for you Pebble

What I've been picking up is that it's ultimately the fact that you can't predict what will happen, nor can you change what will happen

If that candle is short, all you can do is short until it's done

The easiest way to do this, is to trade the longest term candle you can wrap your hands around

I think the moving average although it works a lot of the time, it's like a magician using slight of hand...It misdirects you from what you should be looking for if that makes sense.

Bettlebox,

Your answer didn't answer why price went above the moving average, signaling an entry short.

It has everything to do with the recent PA of 12 bars and the calculating of an average that is "moving" through TIME.

You did an analysis and determined the bias was down...then you wait for a way in.

What I'm trying to get you to think about is "Why?" did the moving average and price look like that and can you see it without the moving average.

Hi, i live in England.

quote "squiggly line truly has no value" there is no right or wrong just porfitable or unprofitable. If squiggly dont work for you cool, if they do cool.

either way its cool. I use squiggly in very specific way , its called a "point of value". Plus Just like a good security policy, it never relies on one system for protection, the say is true here.

I'm curious what timezone you trade in

These are the days I hate myself for requiring sleep


But someone with 2 posts said it best, I wont hate you for liking it. But a squiggly line truly has no value

^^ How do I know? Because CNBC thinks they are the be all and end all


Also, dear god is there a moderator that can save us from pingping?

yes i saw those load 15 min bars down thats why i combined them in 3x 1hr candles and drew in 50%. You may missed that.Its on the 1hr picture i posted.

Can i see with out 12 MA? I dont know i havent tried.

Thats all i can tell you if trying to show me something just say it.

The only thing i use the squiggly for is when I was learning, I aways entered to early.......now forcing my self to wait for price to be above the squiggly solved my problem...

find your personal problem...and solve it...(change what doesnt work)!
