i felt pretty strong about that trade based on the h4, daily dbl bottom and right back into h1 zl
i missed it at the bottom and flipped to a m1 and got in it
i will do that sometimes when i miss the bottom and it doesn't pull back----- and i feel really good about it
i am also up a decent amount of pips so i get more aggressive
Okay, thanks for the input. I def see how you took the smaller retrace on 1M level, fair enough.
Just to expand on it... would there ever be a case where you just trade _with_ momentum? I believe that was mentioned early in the thread, and I think I even recall seeing some posts/charts illustrating this, but when you are looking for an entry, I often find trading in the direction of momentum difficult. Silly me.
I always get stuck in the mindset of waiting for a better entry (i.e. some retrace) and before I know it, price has pulled away 30 pips or more.
I know you won't catch them all, but just wondering if there are any techniques used to just 'hop on in'.
Perhaps I'm just over thinking.
