24022015


This is an illustrative example of the concepts being discussed.Markings are just visualizations on historical data in hindsight analysis 
As expected the last impulse of the previous day acted as a range. RN and NS RN was in between the range.RN acted as IRL Hesitated and missed the BOF of range high. Could not capture the BO also. Price moved up and gave a BOF of BRN. Went short there. Covered when price gave a BOF at LOD/Range low

  1. Hi ST,
    What was the thought process to Miss BPB at 13:30 ? Only Space ?

    1. Logical entry and stop were above and below pull back bar. 13.24
      RR was not favorable. CM and fluid was in favour.
      Overall it was an entry worth taking,but I hesitated. If I took it I would have missed the short most probably

    2. I took the BO but stopped out at the very next bar below BO bar .
      I should have kept SL below IRH

    3. Range BO against trend moves approximately the same distance of the range
      A 20 point range BO moves another 20 point and consolidate. traders call this measured moves
      The idea is that different legs of a price move will be roughly the same length. Google it

    2. Sometimes it happens. I entered with a SL-M and it filled with 4 point slip

    3. Hi ST sir,

      What was your thought process behind entering on the second BOF of BRN. Why did you not enter the first time. Is it that you were waiting to enter below the low of the TST bar @13.30

      Thanks

  3. ST,

    Where would you exited if took the first Breakout faiure trade 10.39?

    Wasnt there a short for you for FTC at IRH.. I m still confuse with considering NS RN and RN as dp. kindly enlighten.

    Why not exit at 14.33 bar high but exited at 14.45? ideal sl wouldnt be above 14.36 or 14.39 for the exit?

    Thanks and Regards

    Bharat

    1. Exit will be at pullback high/above RN
      I do not consider NS RN or RN as DP unless they establish as range extremes. Reason is simple.xx50 option strike attract very less volume and OI than xx00 options. Naturally they are weaker levels
      Position is held hoping a move below PDL. When price came back and closed above PDL and nearest round number 8740, exited. Price very rarely moves more than three legs without a consolidation and stays in rally or decline mode for more than 9 candles continuously. There are no certainties. But if this happens at a DP, it is time to look for an exit

    1. Yes. Intuition is subconscious data processing.It is automaticity

      This automaticity can only be developed by doing the task for a long time focusing on the right things
