Doji, The yellow arrows are entries ?
If the answer is Yes, the entries are related with H1 or H4 ?
How do you enter in that areas ? with limit orders ?

Yes those are entries...
No limit orders...I trade live only still.
Figure out a bias...i used the hourly....
Then drop a time frame or two for entry...

thats it..

Thanks Doji,
Would be this the idea ?

In H1 I only see bullish momo, then the bias is going up.
Wait the price backs a area in 15 min , and enter when I see a candle in 15 min with the same bias direction (H1).

Just sold some Euros. My entry was late: I should be 7 up already - I wasn't logged into my trading plaform so it may draw down a bit, we'll see. Interestingly the renko thing gave the same entry :shock:

Edit - closed for +10, waiting for it to come back before potential re-entry

made loss today -4 pips

i knew price retracing down and i was trying to catch momentum back to upside from 4hr momo from the morning.

I took first trade off 50% based on 5min wicking of 50% level of the green bar that formed the rat trade. There was no following through the downward pressure was too much.

Second entry was 5min blind mouse rat trade.

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

Great thread you have here. Looks like I'm a little late to the party.

I'm going to try to upload a picture here. This is how I see that price action
and I'm not sure I have caught on to what you guys are seeing but let me know if I have the right idea or if I am off track.

Thanks to Doji and the rest for all your efforts here.
