Hi Guys

Trying to keep up with the different time frame charts and why you choose to use a certain one for a certain type of day, So your going to use the 333T today? because it looks like we are going to be in a tight range or does this not matter

Thx R

Hi there...

I'm really confused as to what your system is. Do you have any rules anywhere in this thread?

I see you putting trend lines on the charts but to my eye it seems inconsistent on how they are drawn so I don't know how to follow it.

If you have any list of rules or anything that would be most helpful.

Sorry for being a dummy but I'm just not getting it. lol

I see all the charts but I don't know what I'm looking at. Can you describe why a trade was taken on some of the charts that you've posted?

thanks for the question - will see if i can help --in the option section -the setup we use is to find direction -2 moving ave of different times -like 12 and 42 -the trend line is floated till the faster ma (12) crosses the trendline - that is either a long or short entry point - if you learn how to do this it will help with your option directional timing -you see the longs were marked with orange and the shorts were marked with pink - each area is a directional entry zone - with the last high or low being the risk - i hope this has clarified this some for you -- send me and example of a trade you have entered with the exact date it was entered on a i will post the chart for that time line and you will see if your directional decision was correct on the trade -
