Please comment


If this is where you are talking about the ABCD pattern. It is an ABCD, I did not trade off of it as point "A" did not make a HH

Thanks I never could post the chart as I could not manage the chart attachment success fully, but you answered my qustion . To get a concept of HH do you look at zig zag showing the HH or do you look at the point where the bar closed as being the HH if it closed at the highest point. In other words zig zah HH may show a reversal bar.

I look at candles closing above the prior ZigZag swing

hidden divergence question

Charles. at about 930 cst the 1508 made a small HH and then retraced to ema. The 377 made a LL but I wonder if you'd call that a hidden divergence on the stochastics? It seems to me to be a hidden divergence but want to compare notes.

Also - I entered this trade at the close of the 9:31 green trend bar that closed above the triggerlines, etc. I trailed the stop and closed the trade when the 9:59 bar closed inside the cloud. I wonder if you would have taken this trade and I wonder if you would have managed it differently?

thanks again for your willingness to share your method and guidance - it is very generous. And helpful.

Here are some markings on charts based on how I interpret your method, would you please comment?

How many ticks is "too wide" when measuring the distance between the trigger lines?

yes Surly this was a hidden divergence valid trade as the 1508 made a slightly HH and then pulled back to the MA. It was a choppy move that I managed 5 tick gain on. the market is really slow to follow through the last 2 days

there really cant be a rule of how many ticks spacing is required. this is something you will learn with screen time and watching the market live.

You will get to where you'll say wait a minute look at those trigger lines this did not work last time I saw that.

So screen time & practice will give you that information
