Turning HTF trend into a profitable LTF trading strategy
Refining your trading skills requires commitment and discipline. Getting to the level of trading knowledge requires building enough experience.
Plan your Trade
When HTF Trend is testing it's support or resistance zone, you have one of the lowest risk entries possible.
This is Nikkei 225 (SGX-DT) hourly chart. Price has "pulled back" to resistance zone, on opening, it formed a sell signal (Bearish Engulfing).
[Trading on pull backs is one of the most popular forms of trading among traders and it can be very profitable if done properly]
In a lower timeframe (aka LTF) chart, the focus is to follow the higher time frame (aka HTF) trend direction to capitalize on the trend.
These are the various options. Which option to pick? That depend on how savvy is the trader.
Option 1, using Fibonacci and sell on retracement levels.
Option 2, using emolines, still sell on retracement levels.
Option 3, using PPTA, still sell on retracement levels.
