finally I could find time to come back here. It is incredible ... just one week away from trading and I had to read more than 30 pages !!
In the last pages I read often some people in trouble to identify the end of a trend and the beginning of a range; RJ and Marty gave you some advises very good ... let me add my 2 cents.
The enclosed chart is H4 but the internal pattern/behavior of the market behind this is the same in any TFs. I choosed a weak trend to highlight better how I look at the chart to measure the strenght of a trend...Ignored
mind over matter
