    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.

    Good morn­ing(?!)
    1. It is not direct­ly, because I stay out when they come out. Every­thing else I am of the opin­ion I can see it fac­tored with­in the price. If not. I stay out. This does­n’t mean I do not believe in fun­da­men­tals in any­way. I do. How­ev­er, we all trade our believes in the end and I am more inclined to look at price pat­terns (unless there is a black swan event). When they are aligned with the mar­ket we trade. If not, we stay out. No mat­ter how­ev­er you came to your assump­tion. This assump­tion of course needs to be a valid strat­e­gy thus have edge. Luck­i­ly you are in the process of learn­ing such strategies 🙂
    2. Not just that. Also the fact that the whole can­dle tra­versed 2.20xADR. When­ev­er price exceeds ADR there is usu­al­ly a rub­ber­band retrace­ment before con­tin­u­ing (if any). Anoth­er fac­tor were price not clos­ing wti­hin W1/D1 QHi.
    3. I use Kelt­ner chan­nels as a sup­port­ing fac­tor if they hap­pen to coin­cide with oth­er lev­els that I am observing.
    4. It depends. Usu­al­ly around days where there is an inter­est rate deci­sion price can be “wonky” in expec­ta­tion of it. When for exam­ple NFP comes around every 1st Fri­day of the month there can also be a dif­fer­ence in behav­iour even the day before. For exam­ple, I am less like­ly to go with a sus­tained auc­tion as I have found that on mul­ti­ple occa­sions price just dies down after a break of IB. So on those days if I do go with a SA I might wait for a Late-SA or watch price like a hawk. The moment price starts fal­ter­ing I am out.
    Just keep em com­ing. Sur­prised your brain has­n’t melt­ed yet so that’s a good sign 🙂

    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.
