I mean a trade taken between zones. ie a trade taken after a (or at least 1 consecutively) bar closes outside a zone, and price is still oustide the zone when the trade is placed.

Bredin when do enter trades using this indi?

i.e. for a short off a res level do you enter as soon as price touches the level or do you wait for price to go up into the area then enter at the line on the way back down?


Anyone else want to share their entries with this indi?

Pro Trader,
I have been scalping M5 with this all evening, in 'hideously aggressive' mode to gauge when to enter.

I try to enter when price stalls somewhere in the zone.

I seem to get killed if I enter early (before entry to the zone) or late (after exit of the zone).

I dont want to enter at the edge only to watch price blow through, and Id like a better price if I can get it, cos it means a tighter stop and thus more profit.

I place an emergency stop on the far side of the zone.

I must admit that every time I enter I fight the feeling of entering in the wrong direction, and have been guilty of chasing movement and othe dumb things while I get this right....

I usually target the next zone, but am ready to dump on a price stall. Exits are hardest...

Oh ok so basically your looking for 5m rat reversals in the zone, is that right?

No.
I am looking for price to enter a zone and stall or reverse. Then I enter. I am not waiting for candles to close.

I was just noting that when a RAT trade coincides with a zone it is usually an opportunity for larger targets.

If I was trading H1/H4 zones I would be more inclined to wait for a RAT entry to show the reverse has started.

As always, I have an eye on the longer timeframes in order to give me a bias....

Right, I'm with you now.

What I thought you were doing (which is what I looking at), was having the zones on a H1 then trading from a 5m.

Thanks for your help.

Please continue to post with your findings
