A question I'll pose and one I feel most miss.
(1) The study of the relationship between Time and Price?
(2) Is it the combination of Oscillators and indicators that confirm price.?
(3) Is it the combining of all the above into a methodolgy that returns a positive expectancy?
Is it something more?
I believe the Core is none of the above.
The above are a consequence of that core---the heart if you like of Analysis.
It is also the reason why I NOW prefer some styles over others.
The core what is it---to you?
