... really good stuff, iantg. I'll re-read your comments several times

You seem to infer that the order book needs to be factored in, true? But, from my experience the order book is basically #FakeNews for the independent trader. Unless you have deep resources, trying to factor in the order book as a guy trading from his PC is a waste of time. Too many times, I see order book shenanigans that either prevent me from pulling the trigger or worse: take me out early of a winning trade.

SL and PT is where the edge can be found for the independent trader, IMO.
