BK - 012010

Posted by Tom C.

I don't always use trendlines, but when I see something I consider obvious I will. To me, the trendline I drew on BK was obvious; looking at the bigger picture price gapped up and after a short rally pulled back to the RZ and bounced off that level. There were some possible, more aggressive, entries prior to the one I actually took - but I opted to enter on a break of the strong green bar's high that formed above the trendline.

I watched the ORH level for a reversal, but price acted "textbook bullish" by breaking that level, pulling back to test it as support (resistance becomes support), and rallying off of it. I closed my position at $31 (there is the whole number again).

For your fibonacci extension, do you use the 150% or the 138% as the goal mark?

Do you use the 200% fib extension also?

Would XLNX have been a X type setup on the 22nd of January

If its not the right forum, sorry to post this question in comments. I just stumbled upon this blog and tried to search for a link on all of Trader-X's set-ups but did not find one. Can you please post a link to the same. Thanks in advance.

Not Jamie, but flattered. To answer your question Denny, the line of the charts are the 138%. I have used the 200%, but don't plot it regularly.

Anon - what timeframe on XLNX? 10, 5, other?

hsm - this entire blog is X's setups...there is not one link, but probably 1000 charts.
