Combination of the 2 setups in a trading day

Lets look last 2 days us open and see how both the B and A setups worked ... Just for example. i trade arnd 1-2 hrs from 7.30ish-11 for example purposes m gonna just consider us open from 9-11am in the morning. All times are in Est.
For this example i am using time charts 1min and 5min.

Moving on to 'C' Setup

'C' Setup is similar to B setup. The only difference is C setups occurs within the trend. On strong trend days when u get retracements your pa on smaller time frame will shift and go against the trend when it goes back in sync with the trend and gives you an break out you get your C setup. The breakout of the swing high or low to get back in sync with the trend is your C setup.


The Positive's of the c Setup are again similar you will catch the Start of the trend continuation and it comes before the A setup.

Negative's of the setup are also same as B so nothing more to add.

I hope you don't mind... this will not be a habit...

Could you grade me on following your rules on my first trade? Green sloping line is the T3 moving avg. The orange line is mid Donchian and red/green line is super trend, which I use for stop guidance. I don't like using last swings since because the pips range is always too large for my liking.

FYI, this is spot FX.

Great advice. Us newbies are always looking for more - more, which ironically usually means less $$.

You just reminded me of a question I have. So, at some point we are going to experience mean reversion on the higher time frame. This could induce some nasty/whippy trades on the lower time frame. How to avoid?

See if you are going for less trades a day then what place would you like to enter a trade A] where price has already moved in same direction for quite a while or B] Trend change and start of the new trend? to answer your question there is no way you can know that if you are taking each and every trend setup on the other hand if you have limit yourself for fewer trades a day you wont enter a trend trade which has already moved in one direction for quite a while. Hope it helps.
