so which part of 'setup' don't you get?
If you want to short /tf -- you don't try to 'nail the top'
You wait for the STRUCTURE -- a high vol. candle at resistance
consolidation with a discernible trendline lower 3 touch....
Some sort of confirmation from other markets...
This type of pattern typically takes an hour at least -- same for a long setup.
Jumping in early is a loser.
PATIENCE is the key. You KNOW what to do. Can you WAIT for it?
And then PULL the trigger.
It's about a setup. And the best ones happen at resistance after the early shorts/longs get ripped.
