, when I check the 30min in realtime and not aftermath, I discovered there was no breakup, so I went to lowertime frame. 15min is usually my favorite for entry though. So I waited and waited until I see the breakup. The trend is bullish and what I was looking for is a breakup. In fact, the first thing for me is to look for a breakup if I want to long before I even identify the PTECZ. Once I see the breakup, I will identify the PTECZ and work out the retracement back to few pips away from PTECZ for entry while my stop loss will be below the recent...Ignored
But, look closely on my chart.
You are working with aftermath symptoms.
The M30 PTECZ was already there when you were looking.
Just find it and draw the Zone until the end of chart to the right, as long as you can.
And, by double clicking you can open the properties window and input date or just hour,
like 2013.04.02 00:00 and you will have the Zone until midnight, platform time.
Then switch to M15, as you like, and watch what the price is doing.
Breaking up out of the PTECZ and retracing back to it while closing higher than previous Low,
plus your earlier H4 Long diagnose - that is enough to go Long in this situation!
Plus, you could have, even estimated the Exit level:
Where do you get the symptoms from, if not from historical levels?
And, yes, you can use the M30 PTECZ!
You can start with H1 PTECZ an narrow it down to even M15 PTECZ.
The Bullish Trend started much earlier, it started 12, March and confirmed 13 & 14, March:
Sorry, you got the one for Exit!
Just realized after rereading your post.
Anyway, others can study!
Success means adjusting you to the market, instead of the market to you.
