Thanks @Caseynotes. Can you please advise if the line I have drawn is the neckline.

@Nelsy-Boy,  two schools of thought on that one. Some say the neckline should be drawn horizontal while others say you should use the use the 2 points of the base of the neck and if they are at an angle so be it. Take your pick.

An important point though is that though technical analysis might sound technical it's really nothing more than a guessing game. Price does not subscribe to TA. Price will do it's own thing no matter what lines are drawn on the chart which is why technicians don't make good traders. TA is for basic reference only.

@Caseynotes thanks for your insight again and appreciate your comments on price action along with @TrendFollower. I have read a lot about these patterns becoming self fulfilling, in that so many traders recognise them and they all, on this occasion, buy the index. I have certainly tried to cut down on indicators and lines on the chart because I have put myself off from dealing due to conflicting signals. I mentioned divergence in a previous thread that you helped me with. I’ll keep learning and will put questions on the community as and when they come up.

@Nelsy-Boy & @TrendFollower,  you are right Nelsy that patterns can be weighted above indicators and that there is a degree of self fulfilling prophesy to them and that too many indicators will lead to analysis paralysis.

If you have seen any of my charts you will note I tend to stick to simple support and resistance, this is because it is one of the few indicators that is real and observable on the charts that signal boundaries. They are potential battle lines and I like to watch battles from the sidelines and be ready to get up and follow the winner as they march towards the next battle line. Keeping it simple.

    • Hi, sorry to be too late but a reminder that for when the market moves against your week day position over the weekend consider a hedging position in the weekend market in the opposite direction to your weekday trade so that overall your PnL remains fixed.
    • I don’t think you can as the market is closed - I’ve researched this and if “slippage” occurs and you have a “normal stop loss” which happens to be lower than opening price then you get executed at opening price, (which I guess is 11pm tonight)  apparently you need to select “guaranteed stop loss” to allow yourself to guarantee a stop at your chosen price.  fingers crossed. I’m in too deep really, it’s been an awful weekend worrying!!🤦🏼
    • Hi Rob, pretty sure you can still change your stop loss or take it off entirely, if that was something you wanted to do, just go into positions and adjust or if you wanted to take off you delete and press return, good luck with whatever you decide
