@tradethetick,

I see that you now use the Inside Bar. Very Interesting !!! I'll love to see an Outside Bar setup trade one of these days.

What are the Orange, Megenta and a third colored (I can't identify the color) horizontal lines ? How do you use them ?

I like Inside Bars more than Outside Bars. I have not had much success with Outside Bars so I stopped trading them. The Outside Bars show up but I don't take them which is why they're not posted here. I only post the setups I took.

The horizontal lines are YL (Magenta), OL (Orange), YH (Blue), and OH (Purple). If it's the Russell then there is a Yellow line for YC too. I like to see a Reversal Bar at those areas because there is a greater probability of a winning trade.

@tradethetick,

Do you mean DL (Orange) and DH (Purple) instead of OL (Orange) and OH (Purple) ... DL = Day Low; DH = Day High ?

No I meant OL = Overnight Low and OH = Overnight High. I also include a thin dark pink line for Weekly Low and a thin blue line for Weekly High.
