You are absolutely right but this topic is not meant to teach anything about price action. It lead to here but it supposed to be a place to discuss about reversals and our experiences.

I don't find myself in a position to open a topic and speak about PA but there are some that can be used.

Take a look here and here.

hope it helps

 

thanks, I had not see these topics yet. Will check them out.

So, while we have been having this discussion, I have been trying even harder to focus on continuation rather than reversal, and I have to say that trading seems a bit more "effortless" this way. Don't get me wrong, I'm very concentratet and it is making me paying even more attention to price action than ever, but the ITM's just roll in easier than when fighting with reversals. 75% ITM yester day and 80% today (4/5) I just took this trade on GU and it is a good example.

If you look at the bigger scale, GU is trending down, but it hit support during Asia and starting going up, so as it was going up this morning, I was kind of looking for exhaustion and waiting for confirmation to take a put. I pay a lot attention to Ichimoku, and after all, the sentiment was bearish all the way from TF 15 to H4.

On the other hand, it had broken the kumo cloud on TF M5, so I was open to a call as well. After breaking a trend line over the cloud, it did look like it was starting go get exhausted, with a series of bullish candles getting smaller as it approached the trend line, and then came this indecision candle just as it broke my trend line. But, big but, I watched this weak bearish indecision candle very closely as it formed, for the whole 5 minutes, though volume was decreasing, there was clearly a fight between bears and bulls, and even though it looked like it tried hard to reverse and go down, it just couldn't break down under the previous resistance it had broken and the trend line, so I thought, the MF'er is going to continue, no matter how high you think it is. Went for a call and got a deep ITM. (Yes, the kumo cloud breakout and the shape of Tenkan/Kijoun/Chinkou did support me in this decision).

Bottom line, though it can be difficult, I need to be open to what is actually happening on the market, and not letting my brain trick me into reversals before they are actually confirmed. That also opens a lot of opportunities to get on free rides with the trend, being short term or long term trends. Price can only do one of two things, reverse or continue.

PD: Price did start to retrace a few candle after this trade.

As we spoke before I know that you use Ichimoku to gauge the market sentiment and it is pretty decent in this forum at least as the way that you use it.

I know there are some other strategies and topics buy Singh and Fasih and they explained very well the potential of ichimoku supported by some educational video but still I think it would be nice that you open a Topic on 15 min section and let the others get involved on your trading style.

In fact, I'll be your first follower on that Topic. I know also that You are busy with your job and family and might not have enough time to manage a topic but let give it a try and I'm sure everybody will be more than happy to assist you with updating that.

I haven been asked that before, but I still don't quite feel that a new thread based on how I trade will really contribute with anything, at least not yet. I'm still fine tuning my trading style, I tried for a period of time to do longer expiry, now I am back to do mainly 5 min. and some 10-15 min. I have included volume in things I watch closely, but PA, watching the candles closely as they shape, are just as important factors as Ichimku is for me, etc. etc. So you see, right now, I just don't feel that I can sit down and describe precisely what my trading style is, and I don't want to confuse people with "abstact" explanations that are not completely clear. I wouldn't be able to launch a new strat saying; enter put or call when this or that happens.

Once I feel that I have had consistent results without changing a lot my trading style for some months, then I wouldn't mind starting a new thread. To be honest, I hope one day to be able to give back some of what I have recieved on this forum.

Sup sexy Brian!

Just one remark about the volume stuff! Since this morning I have been looking at the Ichimokou and that piece of shit of Tenkan that I thought was just a motherfucker got a famous utility!

Just look at is, on the undecisive candle the tenak, which as u know represent a shit about the 9 last candle is still going up, which means that despite the indi showing drcrease in vokume,the tenkan show that there is still plenty of power and the momentum is still there! I looked at the history of last week and indeed, for Breakout/PullBack at a RS/Trendline, the tenkan, on opposite candle, if still rising, give us a good sign that momentum is still there and we can destroy keep riding the wave!

Just a little thing I wanted to share! I feel really cool to havr fond a utility to this crappy Tenkan! *CLAP CLAP*
AND THAT'S THE BOTTOOOMMMM LINE!

Your are absolutely right. Also, in this particular case, the buy signals are quite strong on Ichimoku, Cloud breakout of price + cloud breakout of Chinkou + T/K cross, nothing is blocking the way of Chinkou. And talking about volme, the more I watch breakout on decreasing volume, I often see that when that happens, price will often continue on the following candle, I think decreasing volume on breakout can also signal that no sellers (in this case, opposite for a put) are fighting the price down so it can continue the momentum for another candle at least. I think Tripack has mentioned something like this somewhere also, if I remember correctly.
