GM Traders,

Thank you all who voted for me in Big Mike's contest. I started this thread with the hope that I could help just 1 trader become a better trader.

As of the last check I made on the voting last night to think that what I have presented here in the forum has in some way affected 82 traders is very gratifying to me.

I will continue the thread just like I have been trying to make us all better traders and still reaching out to the traders that have not found this yet.

Thanks Again

Charles

Hi Charles, just quick question about entry. Do you enter in trade one tick below the setup bar?

1st note here is I see that you dont have the ZigZag indicator on your chart. I know a lot of traders dont like it and sometimes I dont but it is a key part of my method.

The prior ZigZag swing is the refernce point for the hidden/standard divergences that occor.

I only use the wicks/bodies of the candles to see a divergence if the prior swings high/low is taken out

Good trade Sam. That is the trade I mentioned before that I didn't take because the trigger lines looked to strong (wide) to me at the time. Everything else looked great. Of course, those trigger lines don't look quite as strong to me after I see how the trade turned out. Lol. But at the moment of decision when I almost took the trade, I wasn't so sure. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to discern those trigger lines better?

did you watch the video I posted yesterday, it showed 2 good examples of a nuance for the trigger lines

Also if you are not you need to spend some off time and look back across a lot of charts and get a feeel of trades that work and those that dont based off of what the trigger lines look like at entry

screen time and more screen time and then when you get comfortable just pull the triiger, the market is going to do what its going to do

Yes, I did watch the video yesterday and saw your examples. Like I say, it is easier to see after the trade, than right at the time of the trade. I think you are right - that is a discretionary aspect that I need more experience and screen time with your system to get better at.
