If I get a fill back up @ 3.641, KTTG on the 5m with a stop above 3.655 and a T1 at the EoS @ 3.624, it will give me a R:R of 14:31

2.2R factor. I'm taking this trade if it happens.

Order is in, just wait to get filled, if it happens.

Reasons, KTTG, R-Zone Rotation, HTF all pointing in same direction of entry. EoS present as T1, Stop above SL. Good to go!

My math was all wrong in terms of R:R


its actually 1:1.2R if the 41's get filled with a 24 T1 and 55 stop.


hahaha

Pit closed.

Today I applied more knowledge and it appears that I am comprehending the concepts and trade setup rules.

At first, the 10 steps for a trend line trade seemed like a lot, but once I did the steps in order as I should, the steps are really not that much as I was already doing R:R calculations before, now I just have more factors to consider when finding a stop with SL's and what not.

today, 2 trade setups with correct R:R, 1 I missed cause of work, 2, the other did not get fill cause I adjusted my entry to have a better R:R ratio rather than entering on the close of the Trend line going into space.

Though in hindsight with the HTF R-Zone all pointing in the same direction of the trade, maybe using the break and close of the trend line is the way to do, but when trading back into the R-Zone, using the KTTG entry method is the way to go.
