From my experience in trading Hang Seng futures intraday, forward testing results indicate that (especially within 1 hour after the OPEN)
you would save a lot of money taking entry at premature reversal levels
your entry would be a little late, and unlikely to catch those perfect reversed breakouts signals generated at slow stc levels ie 20/80
net net which one is better I don't know. Mike, can you share your view on this ?(no longs below your 20EMA / vice versa)
How did you end up having this conclusion of not taking counter-trend entry points ?
