Have to be more decisive and enter when the opportunity presents itself.

I thought long after the test of the high of the open but didn't enter and now close to 100 points later here we are.

Thanks for watching @JoeMich!

I try and trade right at my level, get in as close to the level as possible.

Once in a trade, I usually don't want to take much heat at all because that means my entry was not correct.

Any thoughts on the video regarding editing/music/etc? Trying to keep them interesting/educational/fun.

Again, thanks for watching Joe.

Thanks for sharing the video. I think it would be if you can make note in the video on why you take that entry, and slow down the video a bit, maybe just record the part where you about to make a entry and after you exit. the video was little too fast, other than that good work. keep it up.

I have been playing gold for while so my watch has been DUST and NUGT.
I uploaded my analysis on DUST.

In 1-day, 4hr and 2 hr charts start to show some fade in bearish momentum for a trend turnaround. In 15min and 5min, it shows bullish volume starting to set in. With the fading bearish momentum from long term, it may create a side way action which can cause a first touch of support level at $6.97 which was a prior resistance and rebound away towards $7.50.

Please take a look and point out anythings I should know or did wrong.

Thanks!

Looks good to me in terms of Kewltech based analysis.

One thing I would want to see is a longer term chart though, always be able to look left and see if the current prices have ever been visited before, there could be a level here and we can't see it if we can't look far enough left.

I can't seem to spot the inverse HnS you pointed out in two of your charts (the red and blue arrows pointing at it? or do you mean the overall picture?)

Potential levels for Wednesday (and rest of this week)

I expect chop or upside, but a potential level for the downside might be 3790ish.

It recently broke $11.28, so it is at its all time low right now. The 5 min chart basically showed all its recent levels. I am trying to see if I read the momentum change.

For the inverse head and shoulder, I am not sure if I am reading the chart correctly. The top dotted line and the left most solid line seem to form a shoulder. The left solid line and the bottom solid line form the head.And the right solid red line is starting to form the other shoulder.

Well we got the chop today (Wednesday) with a touch of downside.

No trades for Wednesday, looking forward to Thursday's session.

I would say there is no HnS in those charts.

Can you give me some advice? If you look at a chart like that, how would you approach it to see its trend/trend change, momentum change or what are some key things you would look at to assist your judgement?

Thank you!!!
