care to explain the +.5 deviation lvl your talking about/ how your using it ?


The +.5 Deviation is just that. One half of the the expected/implied daily deviation move. I use those levels for take profits. The market tends to go sideways on them and/or reverse intraday direction. The most powerful being the +- 1 deviations. In lower IV days and while using intraday strategies, I will not trade out side a one deviation move. At this point in my trading, I also would not trade without them.
