Omni,

If you took all those trades, your doing great! Your lines are similar to mine. I trade mainly the 15 min chart but same principle.
Nice chart.

Seeing all of these entries live, as they happen is a talent you guys have and I believe it's a matter of training your eyes to look for it until it becomes second nature. Hope I get there one day.

Doji, the blue background on the chart was obviously your bull bias from your 1 hr. Why did you use one hour and not 4 or daily? is it because they are scalps? Also, what determines your bias? bull momentum/breakout candle on the 1hr or some other concept?

If it looks like i'm asking you to share your secrets it's because I am. :)

This is where get in 2 minds about things.
PA is starting to say long but I'd like it to be down to my blue area before I consider it - also from here it may not have long to go up. The renko thing, which obviously just follows price is also screaming long from here.

Then on H1

Then down on M15 PA is saying long now

Exactamundo, depending on how far back your perspective goes on the chart you can always find reason to go one way or the other. You don't see long momentum yet? It's right there on the 15 minute chart the breakout of the high I put on the chart. Just because there was momo down further up...you can always see that too, wherever you look. If you wait untill ALL past down momo you saw on the chart is overcome you're back past the...10 year high? :lol: before considering a long. Which extreme are you going to trade from?


Momo developing?

No problem. I'm just asking questions too because I see what you see but I see others things too. It's all there on the charts I marked up yesterday. See my past chart - huge supply zone to left??
