Trading range day

  • Monday, February 11, 2013
  • Bar 1 - Yesterday ended with bear breakout and pullback after fail, failure bull breakout so still always in short. Bear bar but big tail so wait for another breakout up and or down
  • Bar 4 - Bull reversal bar, fail, failure 1t breakout, but 3 bear bars. Wait. Breakout mode
  • Bar 5 - Breakout pullback sell or short but 2 bull bars with close on high so might be buyers below or buy below. Wait

  • Bar 8 - Two legged pullback in a bear move sell or short but dojis and ttrso lp. Still always in short since 74

  • Bar 12 - Two bar revresal with 9 and 10, but still always in short, bear channel. Bulls need consecutive bull bars and move above 7 lower high
