  • Monday, April 23, 2012
  • Bar 1 - Big gap down, 60 minimum or minutes bull trendline = bottom of channel below (pink line )= strong magnet and i have talked about it for weeks. Tail below. Wait
  • Bar 2 - Two bar revresal, strong bull bar, but too close to 60 minimum or minutes channel bottom. Wait
  • Bar 3 - Breakout pullback short for breakout below low of yesterday. Magnets below. 1 was strong bull bar so might go more sideways
  • Bar 6 - Strong bull reversal bar but tight channel and target just below. Don't buy
  • Bar 7 - Breakout pullback short but doji. Probably buyers below. Looks like entering trading range around bottom of channel. Might become final flag
  • Bar 8 - Poke below 60 minimum or minutes channel so 60 minimum or minutes bears will take partial or full profits, which means might get trend up
  • Bar 9 - Strong bull inside bar, reversing up from breakout below 60 minimum or minutes trendline. Tight channel so better to wait to see if get strong bull breakout
  • Bar 10 - Breakout pullback short but at s/r and 3 good bull bars 2 6. Probably buyers below
