Ok, trend is hard to measure i know that depends time window.
How you can jump in when wave counts not match, and price just go one direction, and just wake up.
I don'nt have so strong stamina, just buy or sell.
I talking example today yesterday EUR/USD or AUDUSD
Don't really understand your question, if there is one.
But why would you hate a strong trend? If you know the trend is strong, enter in the direction of it. Of course, you should know beforehand where/when to enter and where/when you should exit the trend.
Build strong stamina . I know how you feel cuz entering the bullish run against the USD starting tuesday was almost impossible if you waited for a pullback . Thats what Im waiting for and Im satisfied waiting until my variables are present . All you can do is wait until your setup offers itself because the alternative is to trade randomly and theres no edge in that . The bright side is that these kinds of runs dont typically have a long shelf life and get exhausted easily BUT you never know .
If you trade pullbacks and if you are patient enough, you will love strong trends. If you are counter-trend trader, you may not like them. Best to identify market conditions and then adapt the trading style.
I recently started a thread called "Market Mood" that touches on similar concepts.
Sometimes the market will go through extended periods when trends tend to go in a straight line with hardly any pullbacks. The question is what to do in response: wait for the market to return to "normal" so you can take pullback trades again, or adapt your style to suit what the market is currently offering?
These are not easy questions and I don't pretend to have all the answers. The key issue is how long the market can be expected to continue in "no pullback" mode, and there are different opinions on how to estimate this. Some traders believe it's basically random: what the market's offering today has no impact on what it will offer tomorrow. Others (myself included) believe the market enters recognizable "moods" that tend to last for weeks at a time.
Wheverever you fall on these questions, I think it is worthwhile for all traders to add a "breakout trade" setup to the arsenal if they don't already have one. Sometimes breakout trades are favored, sometimes they're not, but it's helpful to be able to recognize and execute these setups in case you need them.
