  • Bar 8 - Strong bull reversal bar, or, two legged pullback in a bull move 3, ok swing buy or long, but better to wait since most bars today = trading range bars. Ok swing buy or long for or and low of the day, but maybe only 40%. Higher probability to wait so see if becomes clearly always in long. Still targets below low of yesterday so magnets below

  • Bar 14 - Bear reversal bar, double top 4, two legged pullback in a bear move, but always in long and 16t fail, failure so more up. Might pullback first. Trading range pa so better to scalp most or even all, but ok to hold small swing buy or long. Look to buy or long pullback, maybe around moving average. Always in long as long as stays above 8 or 10 low
