np. I am copying the contents here

Trading YM/ES/TF at mkt close
Does anyone Trad YM or ES or TF at mkt close? bet 2-3 pm cst?
how is it diff from mkt open?

I have seen mkt close is slower than mkt open, do you use same chart at the open and close, or slower chart at the close, example 50Ticks at open and 30Ticks at close

thks

i trade the same pattern over and over -i do find that many times the real money account charts and the tos sim money charts are different in there data -but here is the current chart

1 - is new north move trend line --found s/r on the 565 and is balancing on the older trendline from earlier - notice how it seems to play the same channel distance above and below -

if the vloume is slower it just means my charts are slower in setting up

1 - first high off of new upward trend from crossover

2- new trend line off of new high / also the breakline for closing -if you are fast enough to grab it -

3- nice shorting area below 30/150 and new trend

notice hard bounce off the major red line s/r area mentioned in and earlier post

yes its 133 tick -but try other chart combos and ma combos -find 1 that you like and stick with it and keep it to yourself and you wont have to worry about overloading your entry zones

1- notice the break of the 30/150 -how it became nice short support entry

also notice the 50% line of the major trend 565/1400 lines up with the 30/150 upside break back around 3:20 est

lolu -6E chart in high risk zone -notice the 2 boxes are exactly the same height - when the trend line is minor the trade is high risk - now the top of the box on the left would be a nice short entry with low risk
