Also on a side note. The entry may look a little random, but the issue is my chart still not picking up all the ticks for some reason. My entry was at the end of a bull candle but then when I reloaded (was messing with timeframes) it loaded and what I originally saw as 1 candle was now showing as about 3-4. Here is an example of what I am talking about from a trade yesterday. Live trading chart (not making as many candles) {image} Then a chart after I reloaded with loads more candles. {image} Strange!!
I don't use NT, but I suspect the same issues are apparent across platforms when dealing with tick charts. Collecting the ticks and then reassembling the bars.
I try to keep my platform on and chart open for as long as possible in an effort to minimize these issues.

{quote} Yes, that awful grind in the hour before NY open I've reloaded long already, but will be managing it aggressively in case I've jumped the gun. There may be another bearish drive deeper into the golden zone first. {image}
Out at +15 pips. I didn't like that momentum shift into 61.8AB=CD

{quote} TP +20. PA in the PRZ for Bat, waiting for a candle confirmation for entry.
It overshot by a fraction but entered with low risk (8 pips). There is further confluence of the hrly chart hitting the 61.8 and strong structure to break above. The bulls are strong however so will be interesting from here.

Hi, I'm new here.
Waiting for a shallow correction into the 38,2% - 50% area with the structure. Looking for a buy here when zone is hit and price action is reasonable.
TP would be at the 78,6% of the previuos downswing.

Edit: Bears tried to went down, but the bulls made a strong comeback and only one bearish candle were made. Indicates Bulls are strong atm. I'm in a buy right now, expect to break structure @ 1,1300 soon.

Out. Bulls are very strong. Still may bounce off structure but wont risk a re-entry.

Break of 1.1300 and structure with a huge bull candle. SL to BE+2. Looking at price action to decide to close the trade or let it run. Looking for a potential sell in PRZ.

Edit: Candle of indecision. Bears tried to go deeper, but bulls showed up. Strong up momentum. Put SL to +11. Waiting and analyzing PA. Next structure to break @ 1.1330.

Edit2: Closed for +15.

See below chart for a trade I entered on the EUR/USD 1M TF. Long term order flow is bullish. For the first time, I actually gave the trade an opportunity to fulfill my expectation.

As per my expectations the news was USD negative. The big moves in the GU for last trade and momentum in the EU "felt" like the money knew where the market was going, pity I don't have any analysis to back up these "feelings" because I get them often. Out -14.

Well, here is that drop I was talking about anticipating yesterday. Q. Did I profit from this? A. Unfortunately not, as my attempts at shorting were cancelled by improper stop placement. I tend to place a stop where I don't *want* price to go, rather than where it *shouldn't go* as Mr. Pip says. I am frustrated, but not as much as I would be if I had gotten the stop placement right but the chart reading wrong. This is a problem I can fix, meanwhile it's encouraging to see an analysis play out, at least sometimes. Click to Enlarge

Been reading the charts pretty good today but missed a few opportunities, EURUSD just completed ABCD and im now shorting it with the expectation of a 61.8 retracement of AD leg which is confluent with nice structure. R/R is great, ~1:4. BE @38.2 retracement.
