If price closes in an area then you mark points to that area.

The entries are the same as the HI/LO method.

I'm following MO, thank you!

So the Big Road helps us to not get fooled by smaller breakouts.. ?
It creates bigger patterns every time that price closes in an area, and this why a BO is visible only when we have a longer column

It helps me in a number of ways:
1) ease of comparing column lengths
2) neutral rendering of price history
3) it is compact and to the point
4) it can be used to record other outcomes:
Did I make 20 pips today? Blue = YES, Red = NO.
Did price continue 10 more pips after I exited? Blue = YES, Red = NO.
Did price close beyond an extreme after a breakout?
etc.

In a casino you can use it to track Player/Banker, Pass/Don't Pass, etc.

Cool!

Do you think that there is a way to find overbought and oversold conditions only on the Big Road?

thanks MO!

No, it only tracks price movement.

Hi Mighty,
You still think that only what we need togood trade is three candles ?
What is important: the midpoint of the latest closed bar or the high/low of the latest closed bar?
P.s. sorry for my english

Trading is horizontal lines & the most important decision is how wide I am going to make them.

Without troubling you with a long post, I use:
1) horizontal lines spaced to 38.2% of the ATR of the last 48 hourly bars: x2 for H4, x4 for D1, x8 for W1, x16 for MN.
2) closing prices of large charts as price levels / 'ovals' / 'patterns': the 'something' from which price breaks out
and the 'something' to which price returns.

If I continued the list then the items would become increasingly less significant.

I consider the closes of the last 30 bars when looking at the mini charts.

Could I trade if my data was limited to 3 or 4 bars of each period? Yes, knowing where I am in the broader picture is more important than what the small charts are doing.

Without the knowledge that the high is going to be THE high or the low is going to be THE low, the midpoint of the current candle is the most significant price as it guarantees you at least half of the resulting range should the range expand.
You should be able to trade away from this midpoint using the horizontal lines of the hourly chart and the candle should stay open long enough for the midpoint to be left behind.

Is it?

How much do you want each line to be worth?
How wide should you make the lines or at which "speed" does your account fluctuate?
How many lines do you think that you need to put at risk on the chart that you are trading?

AFTER you solve your position sizing and risk THEN you can worry about where price came from and where it is going.
