That area from 90-99 had thick resistance based on profile, throw in the Space levels.

Wondering if you can use Space levels as points of entry if other things line up? As there is a pattern on the 55 tick that shows the price action around that area.

The 5 minute had a low volume bar form to finish off the series of previous candles.

Upon re-watching closes, candlesticks and candlesticks math, lecture 1, the thing I missed today while in the trade was assessing each 5 minute bar in relation to its previous bars AND the relationship of each close to its high and low price.

I was stubborn in seeing the market hit T1, which I had marked as 99. The market had told me it was not strong enough to get up there from various clues. Price action of the candles AND volume profile in the DOM.

The previous chart I posted did not show the price action of the area in discussion in the tick chart.

I had wished I took a snap shot of the trend line I drew this morning to show how the market had reacted to it.

I slept in cause I was up early for the Friday auction since I am going back out to pickup stuff.

These trend line's were also drawn early this morning for the financials.

Only the 10's had a valid short based on the trend line rules.

While I was AFK from 1200 till time of journal posting.

Trend line trade, Kiss it goodbye using the tick chart for a trend line entry since the 5 did not give one with acceptable risk based on the rules for a Trend Line Trade

Ok, I've jumped way ahead of where I'm suppose to be but I've got a pretty good idea of the concepts from the Freshman level, I'm just waiting to take the quiz officially to move on.

I've posted some charts of Trend Lines and what I assume are Significant Levels based on my current knowledge and experience with drawing them, which is say today after learning about just how to apply the Significant Levels concepts to larger time frame charts.

The first chart is a monthly and I marked some levels which appear to me are significant.

then I scaled down to a weekly and refined the monthly and added any weekly levels that appeared.

then I scaled down to a daily to refine the weekly and added any daily that appeared to be significant.

I should scale down to a 240 and 60 for further refining, but I just want to see how the market reacts to the current levels I've got drawn as Monday will be the start to a new month and there is an interesting price action development from the monthly.

Exciting times for me right now!

Here are some screen shots of SL's I've drawn on a 240 and the end of the chart, with a trend line.

There is a Trend Line Continuation short as it could have been taken since a better entry was present at 0800, I have not looked at a smaller time frame to see how it set up, but I'm sure there's some sort of reversal pattern breaking a Trade Trend line.

After I marked the levels, I move the charts forward to see how the next section of the market reacted to the levels I've drawn and once again, another Trend Line Continuation long trade. After the trade, I redrew the trend line based on the rules and there is a short trade setup.

I did not check if those trades had a Space target for further probability of the trade working out.

Some more SL practice on a weekly gold chart with trend lines.

A second screen shot of some more SL further back of the chart.

A third screen shot, of what missed SL's when I stepped back and took another look.

Another note to point out, the white trend lines are lines that have been pierced or have had a close below so my understanding is they are expired trend lines but when you project out, and see where they intersect, there is some interesting price action around those points.

Updated the levels for my trading PC, let's see how the market reacts to the levels I've drawn.

Note about the daily levels, I've got them colour coded to represent Monthly, Weekly and Daily levels which are significant based on my knowledge of how to identify those levels.

Not sure if having three different colours is complicating the process, but duck, I've already forgotten which colour represents which chart.

Yellow is Monthly
Cyan is Weekly
Magenta is Daily.

I've also got the 240 broken down into SL's as well so I've got plenty of levels to look at for Monday and see if a trade lines up. I'm already looking forward to the fact I don't have to be analyzing the market tick by tick, minute by minute, only when it reaches a level, then focus, but to say I'm gonna shoot the shit in the chat rooms Monday.
