As I understand it the Cawabanga system has us use 5 day and 10 day EMA to determine a trend in 4 hour charts,(I use 4 as its the closest Oanda has) and then determine an entry point by finding a point on the 15 minute chart where the 5 day EMA crosses the 10 Day EMA in the same direction.
Yet whenever I find 3 hour trends, the 15 minute trend is always different, or if its in the same direction, the trend is hours long and ending. By the time the trend reverses back to the original 3 hour trend, it seems that the trade is no longer valid to enter.
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? Is the 3 hour chart so different than a 4?
