Charles-

Am a little confused as to what you are using to determine DB/DT. It seems sometimes use the body on one and the wick on the other. Also, it appears the close is what you are looking for. Need clarification.

Thanks for the great video. Next one might have an exploded view of how you determine DB/DT.

I plan to create a video everyday, tomorrow I will overly expand a chart to show a dbl btm/top a little more clear for you and others

It is true that a dbl btm can occur by looking at the bodies, wicks or a combination of the 2.

This means when you have your crosshair sitting at the prior swing to determine what price level will produce a dbl btm/top then as price approaches that price level it may stop there to the tick which will cause an obvious dbl btm/top. However price could initially go beyond the price level but then close at the price level (meaning price wicks above/below the price level) this would create a double bottom/top that on the 1st swing is a wicks low/high and then the 2nd swing is the body close

Hence a dbl btm/top can be at a wick, a candles body, or a combination of the 2

Enjoyed the video CJ, filled in a couple of the missing links for me. Also good to learn how you are moving
your stop after you enter the trade. Thought you were waiting until a candle closed back into the cloud before
closing the trade.

Good luck to all!

Mike

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

thanks for the comments I'm glad to hear the video helped you

I discovered as I went along to trail the stop as I showed in the video is a more profitable way to trade. However if a candle closes back inside the cloud before you are able to move the stop then you do close the trade before your stop is hit

early morning observations

GM traders,

In looking at the market during the early morning this is not shaping up well going forward. It actually looks more like a 5 year old playing with an etch a sketch

Notice the notations I have put on this chart below we have the whole #, a thin Ichi Cloud, and a triple bottom on the lows.

Hopefully with the U S news at 9 am cst we will break out of this rather large range and get a trend going, in the mean time with the way price is moving any signal that it gives is going to have some level of S&R preventing me from taking the trade. Remember in yesterday's video I said when a trade signal appears I 1st look for a reason not to take the trade. Well this morning there appears to be many reasons.

When the cloud is thin like it is here it is telling you that any trend is weak

Took a trade here with a PB to the 50. There was a HH though, and there was Support right below as shown on the chart. But I planned to watch as charles explained in yesterdays' video.

Once I got that doji/rejection at the lows after in my trade, I moved stop to BE+1.

PB to 50EMA on 1508T at 10:02A

Charles-
Was that a pullback that was tradeable--no close below on my chart? Entry at 10:15A as price leaves cloud on 377T.

Again, if the video & audio are not in sync you need to close other applications running on your computer to free up your video cards memory


I would appreciate your feedback on the video posting as to if it is helping you better understand the way i trade, if it does I will most certainly continue to do this

I hope everyone has a good weekend and a happy and safe 4th of July
