I couldn’t agree more, just like it going the other way also. But I’m not into potential pricing, I’m into trades being triggered within the time period I’m interested in. perhaps call it rolling time based analysis, of a better phrase.
If it doesn’t hit in the next two days then maybe two days later, or two days after that, or a month later… you get me? That’s not what I’m interested in, to put it nicely.
edit. a lot of my analysis is based on prior or prior prior week movment, so if the level I’m targeting is not hit within the current week then it’s void. But, that’s not to say that the following week might also happen to provide a key level that overlaps the prior weeks key level even though it wasn’t hit.
it’s all about adapting, and rolling with the new and most current price action.
