11/27
mMonday, we open below ramge/value.I have failed mostly when trading at vwap.However, in todays example,opening below v/r, pulling back to vwap/confluence,i believe is justifiable...Massive churn up there, how to interperit? at ONL, 30 min buy candle,target either vwap or sd1.With all this set, i think in the future, i will try this location in this circumstance.
The short i took(sim) was in the ditch(sd-1.5) with a 1/5 min sell candle.There was a massive churn there as well. Again , this could have jumped to sd-1,and stopped me.However, i got a 5 and 1min sell candle(hammer) at the high of the pullback.I must take this in the ditch.+15...for this week, my intention is simple.... 1 trade a day,take your best shot...positive after friday, live on Monday

nov 28..open in range in value(yest)
with this, i focus on the edges..sd2/sd-2.Off the open we moved higher,and got some 5min sell candles in sd2.However, without any real 1min vol spikes which usually send cl lower.So what does this mean potentially?As Dalton says, what is it trying to do,and how well is it doing it?Anyway, cl pulled back to sd1/rth mid, and gave a 5min dogi.This was the best entry.in hindsight.Taking a continuation pb at sd1 is usually on exploration days, out of prev days range.Not today.This is the hardest part...context....It all makes sense....after,,,I tried a short on a nhodon a 1/5min sell candle in sd2 reject One thing to remember here....when there are levels above(ycod,yhod) cl can reach for them ....or not...today cl did, and gave a gasp when it came to ycod,no vol spike,nothing special..We got a 5min sell candle, which worked.
I took a short earlier,-10.As I said, cl reached for ycod.

Price action on your overlay candles said that long was valid imho they are 30min right?

Yes Rassi, 30min overlay.Also, that 30min candle had a large wick...But, still,it closed higher...On an inside day like today, i try to use the edges.In this case, the sd1 \rth mid became an edge.When cl moved lower from sd2 before 9:30, it was on lower volume.Usually, a capitulation /1min vol spike (5k to 8k) will signify a short term capitulation, resulting in a move down to sd-1.This did happen actually.....However, just being in the sd2 doesnt mean cl is done.Because of the non climactic price action prior to 9:30, I should have been more patient.Just above, we had ycod and yhod to reach for....As cl reached for ycod, it just ran out of gas....so going forward, I have to wait for the 5min sell candle or 1min vol spike at a level of confluence,and if it cant get there , oh well.All this, is as it relatesto the context of an inside day....context....context
So why didnt I short the 5min sell candle at ycod?...I was looking for a little mor umff from the 1min...a nice vol spike.Also, being stopped on a previous 5min sell candle was probably lurking in back of my mind...and that is not useful , gotta reset betteralso, the way we got to the hod was a grind.....I like to see some selling come in,to consider the entry

Good to hear that! I've come to trust my Japanese Candlesticks more than the news or any other indicator out there....if you know how to read them, they work.

Do you use Renko or Heiken Ashi? Would love to see some examples of how you use them. Do you have a journal here or elsewhere?

@Rrrracer I don't Renko or Heiken Ashi at all. I don't have a journal but I am putting together a webinar, hopefully sometime after the first of the year it will be ready. If you're interested and you don't mind me posting in your thread, I'll show some of my trades with candlesticks and how I use them.

apologies @bobarian I hope I am not too off topic on your thread!

thanks

Johnny
