A trade from Chris...

"CIEN, 15-minute chart, Fibonacci lines over the opening range. Price chopped around the retracement zone and then formed a nice hammer on top of it at 11:45, with support from the 5EMA. I exited at the Fibonacci extension, and re-entered on a break...

Looking at Facebook

Since there is a lot of talk in comments about FB, I thought it would be interesting to look at the action of the first 8 days. If you plot Fibonacci lines over the first and second day, you can see that - after the short-lived bounce on day 2 - pri...

LBTYA - 051812

Friday's trade brought to you by Warren: "Shorted LBTYA on a break of the 13th bar. It was a nice pattern that gapped down, pulled back, and then broke back through the previous low of the morning. The trigger bar closed below the morning low, had a...

A short week

I'm taking time off to enjoy the Spring. Here is a trade from Chris, and I'll see you guys (maybe) next week! "BHI was a gap up. 15-minute chart, Fibonacci lines over the first three bars opening range. I didn't like the high tail on the third bar,...

Ed has posted several trades in comments recently. Here is one from today:"MRX, 15-minute chart, Fibonacci plotted over the opening range. I entered on a break of the 4th bar's high. The 4th bar was a hammer, and price bounced off the top of the retr...

Another trade from David...

"This was similar to my TOL trade last week, but I prefer these three bar setups because they happen faster. 15-minute chart, Fibonacci lines over the first three bars, entry on a break of the third bar high. The third bar was at support from the 50%...

A nice trade from David

"This was a perfect setup, so I couldn't resist commenting. TOL, 15-min chart - price rallied after a gap up, wide range first bar, my Fibonacci lines plotted over the first two bar's range. Price pulled back to the top of the retracement zone and fo...

A trade from John

"I'm not sure if my trades are worthy of highlighting, but maybe it is good for comments section. It is a little similar to the two charts from David and David - classic X type setup, 15-minute chart, Fibonacci over the opening range (symbol = GLUU).

Another David, another chart!

"X, I have found that these setups tend to work nice: a gap down, and a move back up though the previous day's range, with a setup after a pullback from the high. An example would be DTV from today. 15-minute chart, Fibs over the opening range first...

A chart and question from David...

"My go-to trade is a variation of an X classic. I trade 15-minute charts and plot my Fibonacci lines over the opening range. I look for a pullback to the 50% level, and a valid candlestick pattern and support from a rising 5 or 8EMA. An example from...

A trade from Chris...

"I made a profitable trade today and wanted to see if you guys thought it was a good setup, or just luck! FNSR - 30-minute chart, entered on a break of the 3rd bar high, exited at the 8EMA for .50. Reason for entering - wide range first bar, narrowin...

Focus and get good!

There have been some excellent comments on Michael's setup over the past 6 or 7 posts. There are many trades, a lot of analysis, a lot of Q&A, and dissecting of losers as well as winners. When I wrote "Chasing success", which is one of the most popul...

A trade from Tom (not Tom C.!)

"Because my name is Tom, I've always been partial to Tom C.'s setups. :)I mixed Tom C. with Michael, and traded HPQ on the 30-minute timeframe yesterday (Thursday, 02/23/12). It was a "u-turn" and reversion to the mean. I entered on a break of the 3r...
