lolu - this was already done in post #170

Just responding to your post # 172 ... but I now put your chart in post # 170 side-by-side with mine, and what a perfect sync ... so I can now do higher frame (i. e. 512-tick).

Yeah, I note your comment on # 3 ... the SHORT @ # 3 could have been a trend line break ... but the Potential #4 is not looking good even now.

# 3 -now have put the trendline in for the short side -

this trade has set short in reference to the 135/350 ma 1.2463 area was a good short zone with a stop above the high -which is high risk in my oppinion .

you would have been long form 1.234 area with a stop of 1.228 with a reward of 1.246

the short is high risk at this time -

note the pink s/r line is balanced off the last high as there is no low that works yet after the 135 crossed below the 350 -

please remember -some days the side ways chop will not allow any great setups -

so study study study -many different tickers -while there is nothing to be made -

at some point you will be able to do it in your sleep

13 - bounce off the 30 /trendline break

14 - tight risk short entry 1284 with a stop @ 1285 ---high risk as 86 will get you 89 -
