Absolutely. There is an old adage of the mean reversion. So the 50% of the tape is my bias level. Another good tape example. More buyers just walked in @1950.50 if on Monday 1950.50 is not able to hold the price. Then the price should retest 1945.00, 1943.00 since that is where earlier buyers came from. And the lower levels would be @ 1937.75 and 1932.50

Was thinking today to have a 30min trigger entry or maybe even a 20min tape. Will have to dance with that idea over the weekend. The net volume indicator does read the contracts very nicely. Maybe on the smaller time frame would pin point better trigger.

It's a tropical thunder over here we have had a 100 degree weather this whole week! Very nice. Good solid arthritis weather.

Why do you take pictures of your screen and not a screenshot?

I don't know how to screen shot, and so I take pictures. Why does it matter?

Point taken. It becomes a lot easier for a reader to see the chart. Thank you. Will place it on my to do list.

Push the prt sc button on your keyboard, open up MS Paint or any image software and click paste.

Angle, glare, and other factors make it hard to determine what you are trying to show in your images.
