That first green arrow is a second entry long; long and a failed breakout of the EMA, because it reversed on the bar. I took that trade long.

The candle at 11:10 is another 2nd entry long I beleive. That look like it would have been the best trade of the session, because it was the start of 2 measured moves up.

After 2 weeks of getting my feet wet with the 5 min(with 21 ema), i have come up with the basic rules for my 2 entries.They are simple, and the intent is simple also...take the entries that fit the rules.Alot of this method , although based on trendlines, is centered around the 21 ema.Its time to believe in something.

Nice job Bob. Rock and Roll!

I saw that as actually 2 legs down, +1 leg down, and therefore a hard test of the EMA. If it tests 3 times, it is a stong probaility it will reverse.

Anyway, i wasnt in the position to take it.

i watched the video, and learned a few things.The most important, is when the the mas on the 2 charts are wedged closely like that, expect a rangy session, until it breaks out.Now, if its just a range, play the highs and lows(or not at all)If there is a TL, like today on the line charts, buy on the TL(or not at all)The typical A and B trades were mushy today, and the 21 ema area on both charts was generally unreliable.

thursday
1 cl
3 es
2 ym trades
got home after cl open, and didnt trade it until after cl report.The es and ym trades are just on the periphery of the TLs and ranges.Basically, areas that should have liquidity.Adifferent, slower type of trading than the cl.Ended up the day +$2.50 net..beats having red.With the es, we just need to make sure the TLs are the correct ones.
