Looks like the hourly time frame is no good for me, as I just don't have the patience for it.

And I've spent so much time looking at charts that I have very few skills that would make me employable elsewhere.

It's five minutes or bust - noose time :D 

thought you had a tested system. if not enough trades test it on a greater number of markets and possibly time frames.

Nope!  Another fakeout.  Had about a dozen of them in a row this week :)

 

And your system survives that kind of failure rate, astonishing, it must be a really good system 👀

Key points of the day on M5;

A/ bulls attempt to push higher but bears counter with a reversal bar and take control.

B/ bulls attempt to get back above the pivot, bears say no, doji ---> red bar, key entry point.

C/ bears stopped at S2, try to break downward but get hauled straight back up by the bulls, bulls take control and push price back up to S1.

D/ bears try to re-take control at S1, legitimate entry point for a short but the very strong bull bar at E should have had you running for cover.

(stay away from the market open whipsaw 8 am and pack up at 4 pm as the only guys left are just closing out their day trades for market close at 4:30).

I should try your 5 min system on the DEMO to keep me occupied instead 🤓

Tom, what is your directional bias apropos of the charts 🤔

intraday always look to the Daily Pivot, if above expect continuation up and if below then down but Dow and S&P are on opp sides at the mo, would expect Dow to follow S&P and Dax to follow Dow.

    • Ok - following on from the last chart One thing you MUST remember is NO-ONE knows what a market is going to do exactly, we are GUESSING and using BEST GUESSES based on PROBABLISTIC outcomes CNX1 - The ETF of Nasdaq100 - did exactly as it said on the tin We had: The Triple Bottom  The 2RSI tick up on the formation of the Triple Bottom Then the pullback Then we got a DOUBLE top formation, which for those inclined offered a shorting opportunity: Double Top  BOTH the 7RSI and 2RSI showed on the close of the bar labelled (RED) 2 - negative divergence (Lower high reading in the RSI) compared to red bar labelled 1 Break of the low of bar labelled red 2 = go short with a stop 1 penny above the high of bar labelled 2 Seeing these "swings" is much much easier by adding a swing file to ones charts - Remember also most chart patterns have logical places that INVAIDATE the trade - that is where your stop goes! Over 110 years ago - WD GANN said "Buy Double/Triple bottoms and sell double/Triple tops" - That advice still works today and I can attest it beats lots of the touted trading methods out there
