One of my favorite pastimes when i have time for research is to look for ideas for trades. These ideas come from things i have seen on the screen, on the DOM, on YT, other forums etc.
I don't particularly trade traditional patterns, but look for areas where traders could be trapped in a traditional pattern. So this thread is not about flags, pennants, etc., but more on areas where a run of stops could occur and how to manage it for a few ticks and possible a longer run...
I'll post some ideas on charts, videos etc. and hopefully others can post some ideas too. Some of this will be in hindsight, some will be sim, some even market replay, some will be live. Really looking to share my ideas and hopefully receive some other ideas along the way.
I don't really log my ideas on hard copy, but sort of try and learn the idea so i can recognize it on a chart or the order book. What I've been trying to do now that i'm not live full-time, is to log enough trades with this "mental play book" to see if there is a statistical edge. I think this important to do before trying it with real dollars on the line. I need to trust my playbook.
