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.

That is the 50% retrace for  the Dow and S&P. 

It's the opposite, I don't think I'm cut out for day trading.  I still would have been better off keeping a position open from Christmas, even now.  I zoomed out to the day chart and the overall pictu

I do Tom, I just needed to get a grip on myself this morning.

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).

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.

    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
