Good evening Lad,

New dynam­ic this week trig­gered by big events. In light of that

1. How is your analy­sis affect­ed when price move­ments are trig­gered by big events ?
2. Is that bull­ish engulf­ing with a large sell­ing wick indica­tive of a pos­si­ble short term pullback ?
The con­sol­i­da­tion below Q points on dif­fer­ent time frames leads me to believe so as long as the price action con­firms it. What are your thoughts ?
3. You said you use Kelt­ner chan­nels and i think i see them on your chart, how come you rarely men­tion them in your analysis ?
4. Is it worth trad­ing on Days with big impact news ?

Thank you for your answers in advance, Cheers mate.

My trad­ing jour­ney is do or die ( hence Do or die Mar­ket­stalk­er ) . I feel to that to make it in this type of career you need an extreme high lev­el of per­sis­tence, grit and curiosity.I have made life-chang­ing deci­sions the past year and i have giv­en myself no oth­er option but to learn how to trade con­sis­tent­ly and profitably.
