plethora - you 2 lowest trendinles -remove the lowest 1 and use the next higher up than -take that at the same starting point you have and split the last high zone pocket -the breakdown in the middel of that uppward move had no conviction in my eyes -

Creekboy, when you return from breakfast would you kindly mark up a chart of the CL so I can see your vision.

Thanks in advance.

lolu -i see many errors on your setup -but with out providing me the ma's your charting with it will take me too long to dial in the ma's you are using--it only takes less than 2 min to set up any chart or check if the ma's you are testing are listed -thanks for posting

3--short under s/r double line --stop is the high on the left edge of circle -short zone is the 700 ma which is now 3 walls of s/r

4- reversal zone text book long --stop below the low -

what would the profit be on this setup
shorting 1.2546 and reversing at 1.2371

also what would the risk be per the entry short price 1.2546 with a stop at 1.2574

now granted if you did not ride the entire short to reversal what would the risk be going long at the base?

creekboy,

You seem to be having two MAs combination on the same 5 Minute chart: 27/70 and 270/700, and the 270/700 looks better on your chart, however, 270/700 does not even show up on my chart; 27/70 shows up quite well on my chart and in sync with your 270/700, and your 27/70 seems the same as my 2/7 .. could the platform you're using be causing the difference ... I suppose that you're on TOS.

Have a look at another screenshot of 6E @ Asia opening hours on Friday last week.

Lolu
