People always want to bring up the 'coin toss' as an example. And it's a valid one if used correctly...
Yes, you can toss a coin a zillion times and the odds will always be 50-50 (unless you can get the coin to land on it's edge.)
And with the 'chaos theory' of the markets, the odds appear to be 50-50 that price will go up vs. down, as well.
What people don't look at is that public opinion can't change the coin toss results, but it can certainly change the market. Thus statistics, if used correctly, can help us find entries that have more than a 50/50 chance.
Thanks for your indicators which help us find the statistically probable times and places for making profitable trades.
