  • Bar 1 - Fomc today. Yesterday ended with 60 minimum or minutes wedge top so might get approx. Ten bar, two-legged correction sideways to down. Gap, bear bar, breakout below trading range, target below = 60 minute 20 bar exponential moving average, trendline, but small bar. Ok to wait
  • Bar 2 - Micro double bottom at 60 minute 20 bar exponential moving average, room to moving average so might be ok scalp but missed trendline so probably more down. Better to wait
  • Bar 3 - Strong bull reversal bar, but missed trendline so probably more sideways
  • Bar 4 - Breakout pullback sell or short but tails and at support. Lp. Swing only, but better to wait
  • Bar 6 - Second entry buy but tight trading range no scalping with stops, bear bar so bad swing. Wait
  • Bar 7 - Mt moving average, possible high of the day but bull body at support. Better to wait
  • Bar 8 - Big bear bar, close on low, more down. Always in short
  • Bar 9 - Bear follow through, more down
  • Bar 10 - Doji, fail, failure breakout, higher low, parabolic wedge 2 5, but 3 bear bars so probably sellers above or sell above. Wait to buy or long
  • Bar 11 - Two bar revresal 9, parabolic wedge 2 5, possible low of the day. Ok swing, higher probability to wait. Still always in short
  • Bar 12 - Breakout pullback sell or short but strong bull bar and sideways more likely. Might be buyers below or buy below. Swing or wait
