Did strobe’s post cover your hourly/15min query Darren?
That’s a pretty typical scenario as far as combining those two timeframes with a daily background bias in play.
There’s also another one playing out now on eur/cad.
Daily bias is up, therefore play the bullish hourly/15min set up at european open providing avg range is ok & you can calibrate acceptable risk.
I personally don’t consider any regional session a no-go Darren. Volumes will be lower during that shift than the prior two headline sessions & Tokyo can often resemble a graveyard when there’s very little data or heightened risk appetite playing out.
It also spends a good deal of time consolidating prices after aggressive moves during London/New York. However, when the prior two shifts have been relatively quiet, the dealers will often go hunting stops if they see an opportunity to do so.
During established trending moves Tokyo quite often presents very acceptable pullback entries, especially during their afternoon shift. I wouldn’t write it off at all, just be aware of the price action leading into Tokyo & if you get a bias/trigger opportunity to get aboard with acceptable risk, then pull the trigger.
