Hi db.

-When you refer to “this phase”, what exactly do you mean?

This phase of the process you're going through to finalize your plan.


Quoting 
And finally what is the meaning of DP?

Danger Point.

Incidentally, your charts are much cleaner. Are you finding it easier to see what needs to be seen?

Yes, usually is easier to see the PA without so many lines, especially without Trend Channels that in some cases framed my attention in some things that are not relevant enough as the price behavior

Have you explored incorporating the DP to determine your entry price?

Regarding to this: how can I start to explore with the Danger Point? Something related with Reversals and S/R?

Start here: https://futures.io/index-futures-trading/34908-trading-sla-amt-intraday-13.html#post506608

There are various ways of entering a trade. Entering solely on the basis of one's risk tolerance isn't nearly enough as one can easily rack up loss after loss. One must also exercise at least some minimal competence in reading price behavior. Given that, entering in relation to the danger point is one option. If you haven't read Wyckoff's course, Ctrl+F the course using "danger".

This has nothing to do with trading, at least directly, but Jeez!

Even though the higher high was marginal, the trendline had to be fanned (see post 245).

Either way, the SPX is ranging (like we didn't know that ).

@DbPhoenix do you trade? I mean for a living, like as your primary income, from real trading, on a daily/weekly/monthly/yearly basis.

Do you ever make any trades in this thread? Do you ever actually list a trade direction? Do you ever talk about anything other than hindsight charts or theoretical lines on a chart?

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)

The purpose of the thread is to explore Wyckoff's approach to tracking and trading imbalances between supply and demand, particularly with regard to the NQ, though those who are more interested in other mean-reverting instruments are welcome to post charts of them. If the thread is in the wrong place, my apologies. It's fine with me if it's moved.

It appears as though this thread is in the wrong place. So I've moved to here and started over. Given the sloppy beginning of this thread (my fault entirely), a new start may be best for everyone, both those who are familiar with the material and those who are completely new to it.

Charts for tomorrow have already been posted. Those who have posted here are just as welcome to post in the new location.

There was nothing wrong with the location of this thread. I was just questioning your experience and if you are a sim trader or actually trading cash, because so far there is no evidence you're trading anything at all in a professional manner.

I believe it's extremely dangerous to tell people they can follow a few lines or ramblings from 50 years ago and make money, especially when you provide no proof of your actual trades to substantiate anything you are saying.
