Nifty opened within previous day range. Skipped the BOF of BRN as market did not give a proper entry or  a pullback after BOF. Then it was a range between BRN and PDC. Attempted a trade on BOF of PDC. Covered when it bounced from BRN. There was another BOF of PDC later . I was away and could not attempt any other trade

  1. Hi ST
    I have found that the trade taken after a Pin bar formation is a decent trade and can be taken almost blindly.
    What are your thoughts on it??

    Thanks

    1. Yes. Pin bar rejection is a rapid rejection which happens within a trading time frame candle
      It is much more effective than a slow rejection

    1. It is not a BPB of PDC. Can be a BOF of PDC
      Trade the extremes. Your entry was in the middle of the range
      There can be always some overlaps and overshoots at the middle

  3. Hi ST,

    I took the first trade like you and i missed 2nd trade due to lack of clarity on entry.

    Is it right to enter below the low of 2:26 pm candle or i would have entered below previous price stall (around 8019).

    Thank you,
    Kiran.

    1. Right entry will be at 8019, below the consolidation low
      But being the range mid point may get whipsawed if your stop is too tight

  4. Hi ST,
    Thanks for the chart. If you were not away, where would you have taken entry for the last BOF of PDC?

    3. MY SL will be above the 14.30 bar @ 9 point risk,
      But I will just exit a pull back bar closes above the flip area 8020

  5. ST,

    Why u avoided pressure play longs above 12.30.. many shorts were keeping sl there.

    Secondly .. In your second trade. the price has not moved beyond days high or yesterdays close .. so very less people were trapped. and we were in strong uptrend yesterday.. why u attempted that low probability trade.. against strong brekout bar..this could be just a complext pullback and move up.. Please eloberate with your thought process.

    I shorted below 1.45 bar on FTC third time above days high .was it correct trade?

    Thanks and Regards

    1. Who is there to keep SL above 12.30. Very few
      Shorts created on the first down move exited on break or IRH, the first candle high
      No pivot broke to the down side to create lot of shorts.12.42 green candle was because of this SL triggering

      Price was clearly in a range and I sell the highs and buy the lows. CPB can happen,but rarely in a range but on a trend move.You can short below 1.45 bar

  6. Hi ST,
    Was there a BPB trade at 14:51. (this failed). Want to know your thoughts on this.

    1. No. It was not a BPB. . Already the IR got bracketed and IRH /DO is not cosidered as DP

  7. Sir,

    There was a long consolidation before your BOF trade. I thought that the high of this consolidation will act as flip zone and did not take this trade. Was my thinking correct?

    Thanks,

    1. Your thinking is right. It may act as a FLIP
      There were some stops above the consolidation. Triggering of these stops created that green WRB. There was no follow up buying and I thought of shorting below this WRB. When a pivot formed I took a chance and tried a short with SL above this WRB

  8. I just couldn't take any of the 2 BOF's ... seemed to me like more like TST because there was little penetration. May old habit of checking the broad market (which was strong) didn't help either.

    Did you decide based on candle patterns also around that level? The one common thing I could see was that the declines from PDC were around 8024-25 level with small body candles just before it broke those levels.

    1. I do not look for candle patterns. I just see the acceptance and rejection of levels

    1. Was referring to the BOF trade. My intention was to short the BO bar low. When the pivot formed shorted below that pivot low
