I agree with you 100%. There is no one magical thing, but do you think that if a moving average, floor pivot, or whatever, appears to act as some significant level that there is usually an area on the chart (left) that is the significant level?

I'm not challenging you and I sure as hell don't know. I'm still trying to figure it all out. I ask myself every day how should I go about doing this thing called trading.


They are significant levels for price, but it can't be tied directly to any one single 'thing' like a vwap.

I think everyone should be careful on "bounced off the <xyz>" type remarks. I am guilty of this too, but the fact is -- whether it is a vwap, an r1 pivot, an ema 20, value area high, point of control, or whatever --- there are probably 5 more things, maybe 50 more things, that could account for this "bounce". This of course becomes much (MUCH!) more so when you talk about esoteric indicators.

I think the closer you stick to session indicators the better, simply because they are more widely used.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
