First off, the fact I don’t use indicators is irrelevant. If you want to incorporate a moving average & stochastic to assist with your planning then the aim should be to determine how you can make the most effective use of them to help you achieve your objectives.
No to the trump comment, yes to the prior day spotlight comment.
There are always tiered or priority levels that will dial in & out of focus each day as the price gets driven back & forth on your technical chart.
If you stick 4 vertical lines up on your chart & mark them off at the days close (17.00 NY) then toggle to a 30 or 60 minute view, you’ll see how consistently those first line priority levels play ball.
Price has to put them in the rear view mirror before it can make headway onto the next level of priority, be it in trend or range mode.
So that always takes precedence, followed by the next obvious swing level which will be clearly identified via a 30, 60 or 120 minute chart view.
Although there are plenty examples available, I’ll cover some current scenarios when we get to the specific chart queries surrounding your indicator permutations.
I’d be looking for the common, basic herd psychology indications that price was either exhausting & slowing or preparing to re-engage a dominant trend or bias via a pullback to a prior area of support or resistance.
Typically those signs would present themselves in the form of spinning tops, dojis, small range (inside) bars - all signs of fair value & indecision.
Hammers & inverted hammers (hanging man) – typical behavioral signs of level or zone rejection.
The behavior of the market is revealed & presented on that week, day, regional session or hour by the formation & presentation of the bar.
It’s the one true reflection of the dominant market psychology at that time based on the influences that are driving it.
If that psychology is playing out on & around an area that I’ve identified as significant, all the better.
Ok, well you’re going to need to either stick up a chart or let me know what configurations your indicators are set to & I’ll construct & haul it up for you. We can then try knitting it all together & see what it looks like.
