I never understand when people say they don’t use indicators, I like to think of myself as a PA trader but still use indicators. The candles themselves are indicators ie type, size, pattern how many etc. Also support/resistance which I think everyone uses. Trend/range is an indicator. Volume. I personally use the 20 ema. The comparisons of time frames are indicators.
All traders need some form of indicator to trade none of them are wrong and none of them are right. What I have learned is to put everything together that works for me and more importantly understand why it works and create a trading plan. Just my thoughts and opinion.
