In the past I tried to count legs to predict turning points but it was too random. It worked sometimes but not enough to give me an edge. I pay attention to it sometimes when I'm in a trade. For...

Yeah, I don't really count the swings per se. I simply count any leg as I see it on the 5 min chart. However, it can lead you astray so I'm not sure about the practicality. There will always be...

Agreed. I actually didn't start watching until about 14:15 BST and restrained myself from taking a trade. After looking back, I'm glad I didn't :-)

The last 2 days have been tough for me as well Adamus but, then again, they have basically been trading ranges so don't beat yourself up too badly. Also, I am always leery of staying in later than...

Looks like you got some good entries Adamus. On another note, I had the same question regarding Al Brooks as well. He does speak of support and resistance but I haven't seen him specify what he uses.

I'm using Tradestation and the Sunday session opens at 5pm EST. That is also their rollover time between days so I figured it was a good session to use.

Ah, it could be a function of my session times. I'm running a 24 hour session that runs from 5pm-5pm EST (which would be 11pm-11pm BST) so possibly my highs for the prior day are different. Anyhow,...

Adamus, have you ever noticed that if price is above the 50 SMA (hourly) at the beginning of the London session, more often than not, it tends to test the previous days' high during the session?...

I'm not sure; I haven't purchased his newer books. I only have Reading Price Charts BBB and I got bogged down in the middle of it. To be honest, I can understand why he had a hard time conveying some...

Hey Adamus, I forgot to post that I purchased Al Brooks' trading course last week. I've completed 20 modules so far. The presentation leaves me sleepy but the information is really good. Even though...

Right, I would not personally. Sometimes I question, though, if I am finding too many points of S/R. After all, they are all broken in the end.

Good to see you posting regularly again Adamus. I've been on a 5 week hiatus due to work so I'm looking to get back in the swing of things too. After such a hiatus I find myself asking if I'm trying...
