Apologies for the tardiness of my reply. I’d checkout Wannalearn’s thread ‘Journey of the ES’ (https://www.kreslik.com/forums/therumpledone/journey-of-the-es-wannalearn12-t15954
) and Billy TT’s thread ‘Happy Trading’ on Forex Factory (https://www.forexfactory.com/showthread.php?t=524601
) (Is it kosher to mention FF here? If no someone should let me know).
Billy’s thread is really really reeeeeally long (it’s now over 2000 pages, did I mention it’s really long?), I would say just search it for mentions of “deadzone” and “dz” (Although I’m working my way through the whole thing, and it’s very cool to see how ideas develop over the thread’s course. The deadzone is just one of many tools presented in this thread).
The basic idea is to take the bar that forms in the hour before US markets open (6-7 am CST) and trade it WickZone style (the triggers being breakouts from the high and low and breakins from the open and close, i.e. back into the body of the candle.). If you’re so inclined, you can extend this zone and trade these levels through the rest of the day. If you give this a go, you might want to consider using something to help establish a bias. LeM provided some examples of the way he establishes a bias earlier in the thread, and this is something that’s discussed a bit in Wannalearn’s thread as well. I’m still playing around and trying to figure out what works best for me.
Feel free to swing by whenever!
