Sounds like reading a science textbook on physics or chemistry like comparing a bar of price data to an atom with components and multiple dimensions to it. Or a set of quantum mechanics properties , different types of spins and shells. Then applying this across different time frames I'm lost there and can't visualize that. Not that I have grad or post-grad school. Just reminds me of intro to physics or chemistry class or a textbook. And would this apply to price behavior outside of trading, like grocery store items and manager markups or discounts on a weekly basis.

One time almost every trader understands, that indicators are not grail - it's just methods. And as for trading, experience is much useful than naked technical analysis. In hard market situation no one indicator doesn't help.
