are you waiting till the breakout candle closes before drawing new lines?

I may be wrong but I don't think it matters unless its an outside bar. Reason being is you are drawing your line with respect to the opposite end of the candle from the break out. Its quite cunning really as it gives you a 'pivot' on the currently forming bar :)

update

Postby razorboy » Tue Apr 07, 2009 2:31 pm

went long at the close of the break out candle after the 0 and 00, closed out 147.80ish.... target was higher and eventually hit

147.47 was the dynamic trend line - it was penetrated, but closed under -was still an indication of an upward trend - went against me for a bit as you can see

have you considered a Z line entry in the same direction as the dynamic trend of the larger time frame

Just realized the importance of this myself.
Am taking a second shot at this - trend is up based on the break out and 0,00 range

just sort of went long without dialing down to a smaller range to look for an entry

breakout candle is still open. not sure if i am doing this right. the teal lines are the addition of the ranges to the low of the break out candle

Second Try at it......

Postby razorboy » Tue Apr 07, 2009 3:47 pm

Second shot using the dynamic trend concept.

Still need to refine entry and SL

On my first traded - netted 40 pips

On this one, 34 pips

in at 48.42 out at 78 (orange) - target was 00

My entry was based on the hour chart, before previous BO candle closed ( i drew the lines while it was open) - had impacted both 0 and 00 lines (teal lines) so I jumped in. I didnt really see an entry in the 5 minute chart unless I had waited a bit longer

input always welcome

Image

Should I be rolling the entire 74 pips into my next SL?

more questions

Postby razorboy » Tue Apr 07, 2009 4:08 pm

here is my third shot at this

the previous bull candle was more of a breakout candle when I drew my lines. there is a wide gape between the 0 line (119 pips) and the 00 line (54 pips)

Price impacted first line, but not second - not sure how this should be interpreted - is the trend still up?

Should i have waited for the break out candle to close?

Blubbb, thanks for tyour indicator.
I noticed it doesnt't pop up alerts. You just hear a chime but don't know what pair and timeframe is coming from. Can you fix that if is not much to ask?

BTW, I have email disabled.

Thanks

the lines are just bias for direction---

if price is above then you should trade long
if price is below you should trade short

thanks for the follow up. I use the lines for bias, but that bias is always relative depending on

1. do you wait for break out candle to close before entering a trade
2. and the close of the candle relative to the line

the first line was clearly impacted, but price closed under it. is this a short bias or a long bias?

from what I see this is a short bias - but when I got in the trade, it was a long bias - price was above the line
