Have not taken any intraday trade since 2-3 days.

Partly due to some coding and mainly due to having some position trades taken this week.
Second is my very old issue - i cant instantiate my trading thought in two way , if i ever take positions to carry overnights then i cant think unbiased for intraday.

Hi @devdas

It is the same issue I am trying to work out of - taking opposing trades on multiple time-frames.

I have segregated my funds with 7 brokers for various timeframe strategies and have found that it works!!

Another method that works (I got inspiration from Gary Smith's book 'How I Trade for a Living') is pitting your strategies against one another instead of letting your ego take the payload. By transferring the emotional payload to a strategy you remove yourself from the equation.

I do not especially look for this, rather they naturally pop-up often and mostly when its in balance.
Apart from other things , one particular key point i have always felt about these that "closer" the divergence e bars more the chances of success , like here 3 bars on 15 minute series.
All three type of entries have their own trade-offs risk and confirmation.
And when it comes to risk, my mind start to think like bargain hunter - " why should i wait when my contextual experience says divergence will appear ", but my little trend following nature do not often allow me to jump before point 1.

This cumdelta percent is a sort of progression factor for the day. I pay attention to drastic changes from one cell to next if any. that alarm possible shift........they would be also visible on candles.

But what was an opportunity for intraday for when opening slipped from yday four step 2nd SD and continued to remain like that. did i added to existing short ? or i found opportunity to reduce that ?

....i need another equality.

My abstract thought and expectations - this budget week has so far completed 127 points, lower than previous week...atleast it deserve larger and bigger if not outlier ( ) range.
