This site is currently inactive as I have decided to move away from exclusively trading Forex in 2010 and as such will not be taking on new coaching clients in this area.

 



I have resumed my focus on coaching as a stock market mentor where I run a success guaranteed stock trading mentorship program

 



Additionally, you can now get access to what I consider to be the best stock options daily trade alert service.

 



Of course, I am biased and with a success rate fluctuating between 68.2% and 72.4% it is hard not to be biased.

 



If you do want to follow along with what I am doing every day you can get access to my daily stock market report 

 

 

You can read the step-by-step Bollinger Band Trading Strategy Guide - this is my main active trading strategy



Until next time


happy trading

Patterns and different time charts

Hi

Something conceptual that I am not quite sure of is the use of different time frame charts.  I know that this is discussed a fair bit.  What I am specifically concerned with is whether something will show up as a particular pattern on one chart and not the other and whether this means that you should move around between the charts to find what you are looking for or whether you should avoid doing this.  Eg, will a hh - hl - hh - hl - hh on a 5 minute chart still show up on a 15 minute chart?  Obviously, three of the bars would be one in the larger time frame but, given that the chart is reflecting a market sentiment, would we still expect it to be supported by looking at other charts, even if not with the exact same pattern?
