Up and down.I havent been consistent trading yet because of home remodel .Next week should be a little better.Im basically looking for buy/sell candles if price gets beyond a pivot.Honestly, im not sure if this will work in the long run.Atleast im live...so tired of sim.What i would really like is to have 1 setup that i take.I m hoping over time ill see something, and when you are back maybe we can talk about it.Have a great weekend, Bob

Always time to talk. After market hours in usually free to do more things.

One thing you can try if going to a larger timeframe. Mark the pivots that are in strong support and resistance zones. You can pay more attention to those when they come into view on your lower timeframe.

Also false breakouts make strong signals in those zones. For example a new high or corrective structure breaksout. Then fails when a close happens below the prior high.

Failures often are the best moves.

Just brainstorming. Hoping to trigger ideas that make sense to you and your trading mindset.
