Love the ADD divergence in conjunction with an area you were already watching. That seems to be a very high probability setup.

Everything was in alignment (with a very tight stop) including $tick showing weakness

What triggers an entry for you? Do you need to see a certain price movement (reaction) in the area you're expecting? Does your stop generally go beyond the current swing high/low?

Thanks,
Zimmer

Zimmer,

The zones and price levels identify are higher probability locations for price to react. If you read my premarket, I try to identify if...then... scenarios based off of market context (the ongoing story).

Your questions deserve more than I will simply summarize:
1. Trigger: there is no formal trigger. Resting orders or market orders are placed based on probability of zone or price level.
Yesterday's short "trigger" was failure to show strength at a level, confimed by $ADD divergence and knowing sellers could be active.
2. ...certain price movement (reaction). No, if you wait for price confirmation or reaction, the move can be over or you find yourself chasing.
3. My stop is based off of volatility I identify before the open. Generally, it is around 2 points beyond the zone or level.

Zimmer,

Please also note that not every zone or level is treated the same way. They can carry different weights or probabilities.
