A good trend is prints and BID and ASK. If you see only the green printing, then you tighten our belts and pull the stop closer. Protect yourself sir!

The same is true for the trend down. Need fuel, which will move the stop loss price. New sellers strike a bid, putting the asc. Have you seen this? In this situation it was necessary to pull closer stop. Hey man. Forget about one BIG megaprofit, 140 bucks cool. I'll give my tooth))) You're greedy. Entry in as I see just crazy cool. You're still not happy))) Michael Jordan would explode from the envy of your accuracy.

Prints on bid-it limits the buyer and the seller simultaneously aggression. Ideally, you should stay until there is a seller and he is aggressive. And when there are big to enter limit orders))))
I wrote that in many situations prints mean different things. Think more. This is not a mechanical trading

Google translator is not the best translator.

Agreed. My view is that you're talking about part of the picture. But who will describe the whole picture))) Not enough time. There are 2 party.
The first charges a posture for a long time, charges on fundamental analysis and insider information. That they are smart money, which accumulate Long or short against public places, or in moments where the audience provides liquidity. In general, according to CFTC Commitment of traders,in the market are 3 groups. Hedge funds, funds of the model, the audience. You may be surprised that the main suppliers of liquidity to hedge funds, funds are model. This is the reality of the market.
The audience is 80% of the course.
I digress. So. Smart Money accumulate positions or place there actions in locations with the highest liquidity. This is big money in the long term. And this is the first group of traders on the nature of the work.
The second group. Scalpers.
This we call them sharks. they cut you, they trade against small groups of traders. Their goal is you. you talk about them.
If the first group enters the market only in places where the liquidity is sufficient for them and their positions. The second is looking for a good opportunity to enter against the weak or weak hands of traders.
To make quality trades, we must keep in mind many factors. Those which are right now, our speech, just a few.
And all these groups are united by one thing. They are more informed. You surely have noticed many of the details. And the fact that for example you can see the rally, it is the effect of the entrance of big money. They wait until the dust settles, the price will come back and start again to make its case.

Oh okay, The language barrier makes things harder but I believe we agree

I just finished reading some Humphrey B. Neill and his theory seems the most logical to me so far.

He stated that there are three types of participants in the market:

A) Investors seeking income: Insurance Companies, Trusts, Industrial Corporations, etc
B) Business Speculators: Trading corporations, Amateur Speculators and the brokerages who execute trades for them
C) Professional Speculators: Floor Traders, Market Makers, Professional Traders, Intelligent Speculators

Group A are buy and hold investors. They make a few purchases a year at max and so they trade too infrequently to factor into a trading analysis
Group B trades, but often look for a quick buck and are uninformed in general. They are known as the the public/herd/sheep
Group C trades for a living. They have access to large amounts of capital. They are well-versed in trading, they have resources that most traders do not possess and access to more information than the average trader.

Group A falls into the first group you listed in your description: they make a purchase and then wait
Group B is clearly not smart money.
Group C has both the first group and the 2nd group in your description. They can scalp, they can buy and hold, they can do whatever they please.
