Just 1 left for the finale. Does anyone have a couple of ideas?

I have developed 3 strategies based off the 5min + 15min charts in which I never risk more than 10 ticks in order to make 30+ ticks on ES, GC & CL. I tend to get a better picture of what the highest probability of direction will be for 'the bigger move'. My only problem is that I need 1 last criteria or trigger point such as something related to order flow or volume? I need this in order to remain disciplined and be more conservative in my trading. Basically, after all the other criteria will align with the trade, this will be the finale - the trigger. Does anyone have a couple of great ideas? I would really appreciate the help!

I would use just raw volume. Any volume higher than most recent x number of bars, would mean higher participation in the move ( institutions joining, buying/selling). I mostly trade of bar size and volume with good results.
Good luck,
K

Thanks for the reply. Higher volume might mean the opposite though. For example if I'm shorting a pullback in a down trend, that could mean that its either going to make a reversal or a continuation.
