Hi Jinhar,
thanks for making the thread , i found it very helpfull . As i am only starting to learn about pa can you clarify one or 2 points for me.

in one of your previous threads you wanted the pa to get back in synch with the trend , i presume by in sync you mean HH and HL on an uptrend? and is that only on the higher timeframe or both timeframes.

in your B setup ,is it still a Valid B setup when it crosses below the ma if price is on an uptrend with HH and HL , or do you need to see a change in the pa first , a LH and then a dip below the ma

regards

Steve

Hello Steve,

Sorry for late reply...
When i say pa to get in sync i meant pa on the smaller timeframe to get in sync with the trend on the higher timeframe ... you look at the pa only on ur entry chart..

B setup is price crossing the Higher ma .. When trend shifts .. then your pa will automatically be in sync with the B setup you don't have to worry about that .. Only if market is in chop mode and its just dancing up and down near the ma on the higher timeframe you look at the pa on the smaller timeframe to make sense of it .. other then that it should be easy.. Hope this helps.. Happy trading..

jinhar,when waiting for the price action(ON THE HIGHER TIME FRAME)to cross the ma do you need to wait for a pullback to the ma then a continuation before checking to see if the smaller time frame is in sync?thanks

When the price crosses the ma on the higher timeframe for the 1st time it will always be in sync on the smaller this is for the 1st time cross on the higher.. u just need to wait for a pullback on smaller and get in .. Hope that helps.

This is excellent description of a simple trend following system. Keep it simple, use proper money man agreement and this will work. Great work jinhar

All so true, But with money management mind control is also that much important .. if u don't have that in check it will create havoc for you... because mind is your biggest and worst enemy in trading .. if it goes against you then you are in for a roughest ride of your life .. then it doesn't matter what method you are using or how good you were in the past .. mind control means lots a stuff not just one it means when to quit when u are ahead when to quit when you are losing money management always keeping your risk in check etc . remember no one is forcing you to do anything in trading its you who walked into it .. so always make sure you are prepared as well as you can and mind control comes right at top .. Hope it helps.


Best Regards
Jinhar

Thank you for the help

I charted a 3, 6 and 12 range bar with 55ema

Interesting what you pointed out w/ pa being same on all three charts (for you it's two)

I've also coupled this w/ a system created by David Halsey at eminiaddict.com, seems to be working well - at least has opened up new venues/ avenues etc

So if you want to keep posting I'll be glad to read/ contribute (don't want to cloud your thread though)

Thanks

Bill

EDIT

I trade the 6e
