Adjusted the target to EoS 15m, which is greater than 41 ticks.

Starting to think being long is the right play for today.

Holding R-Zone's on all time frames.

Fuck, or was I suppose to redraw the trend line on the 15m?

I'm confused with "what happens if you miss the first entry, but then it gives you a 2nd chance entry with also a valid redraw"

Appears to be turning bearish, but while journal ling, the price popped to 37-38, not looking good.

Came within 2 ticks of getting stopped out when it traded 45's

15m starting to look like a bowl of spaghetti with that white trend line I've drawn to show what the chart would look like.

Ok, I'm convinced, I have no clue how to use trend lines to enter trades.

Stopped out.

I'm hoping Support will resend the message I sent regarding Trend Lines, Breaks, Closes and Redraws as I'm seriously confused about those rules and concepts.

If they send my message back to me, i'll post what I sent them here as an edit.


Quoting 
I'm getting confused as to when a break and close of a trend line is a potential trade or just setting up for a valid redraw.

I've marked on the 15m chart the red trend line as a trend line that was in place along with the magenta. When I noticed it broke and closed below the red trend line, my mind shifted to short, when the bigger picture was saying pull back. The next two 15m candles, without knowing the exact entry rules look like Kiss the Trend Ling Goodbye entry.

It was after being in a short on sim, I started to talk to myself and said there is a valid redraw IF not in a trade, but I may not be in a valid trend line short to begin with.

A bigger picture look with the higher time frames.

My thought process BEFORE the red trend line break and close was look for a pullback into the 15m R-zone for a long entry. Then when the trend line break and close happened, my thought process shifted. Did I just do a candle by candle change or plan? When I did the candlestick math on all time frames, I was starting to see being short was the wrong call.
