  • Bar 1 - 4 day trading range at top of 60 minimum or minutes channel. Looks like should get bull breakout on 60 minimum or minutes and daily. Might get strong breakout and buy climax and then high of next few months. Big bull bar, close near high, always in long, more up. Possible low of the day.

  • Bar 7 - 2 dojis but trend from the first bar bull and buyers below or buy below. Swing buy or long
  • Bar 11 - 1st pullback so buyers below or buy below 10 and above 11
  • Bar 12 - Big bull bar with target above so possible buy climax and trading range soon. Could last hours, then either trend resumption or trend reversal. Less likely, measuring gap
  • Bar 15 - Bear reversal bar, 3 bull bars, buy climax, measured move. Bulls will start to take profits and wait for approx. Ten bar, two-legged correction sideways to down to buy or long again. Bears will scale in for scalp. Don�t sell or short unless can use wide stops. Better to only look to buy or long pullback
  • Bar 19 - Two bar revresal, but strong small pullback bull so better to not sell or short below unless can use wide stops and scale in. Look to buy or long approx. Ten bar, two-legged correction sideways to down. Extremely strong bull day and 70% chance it will stay bull trend day, but should enter trading range
  • Bar 23 - Bear two inside bars, tight trading range, buyers below or buy below and ba. Only look to buy or long and use swing stop below 12, 13, or maybe 3 profit target stop. Ok swing and maybe part scalp. Probably mostly sideways for hours. Might get 2 legs sideways to down after strong buy climax
  • Bar 24 - Bull reversal bar, micro double bottom. Even tho tight trading range, ok buy or long with swing stop. Bears might scale in 1 � 2 points above high of the day for scalps
