Jinhar,

Thank you so much for the useful info and your time spent.

I trade the YM and use a 5 and 15 minute chart. I use the larger time frame to keep me out
of the noise of YM and to catch the one or two large swings of the day.

Do you think the 15minute chart is too large for your method?

No u can use Whatever combo you like .. I will post some examples With That Timeframe later on today .... This method you can use to Scalp - day trade position whatever you are comfortable with .. I will post that later on too .. Have a nice weekend ..

Here are the setups on the ym 5min and 15min chart .. note the 2nd short depends on how you define your breaks of the highs .. for me on time charts it needs to be Close above to define the break .. So i have considered it a short if you consider that as a break then it wont be a A short setup ... there were 3 short A setups and one long ..

Yes... the last long trades in both your examples are exactly the type of trades I look for...
