If you want to make any real money in this game without being too risky, you have to at least in some part fade 'a' trend, you have to seek value in some way. This means giving up the psychological comfort of price confirmation for value. You need to be getting involved in these areas being respectful of risk.

Theres all sorts of ways you can do that, theres the good the bad and the fugly. It doesnt really matter how you do it, but the more exposure you can secure at favourable prices, the bigger your window for profit will be. It can be done

The trend lines are inherently subjective ,depending on looking at them in hindsight or ahead of the move.Depending on time frames ,support /resistance and context , It’s almost impossible to know exactly how to draw a trend line, if we’re being honest.

Try drawing it on several tick chart time frames , then on 1 m ,5 m and 15 min and then try other combinations like 1 m 30 m and 4 hours or other time frames.

There is no correct method .Does trend trading make money ?

Curve fitters will confirm trends make consistent demo money going back 30 years of historical data. Therefore they are absolutely confident in making more demo money going forward. That, or barjon will eat his hat.

Barjon can't even give a quality discussion on why trends are easy to trade .He can't even argue , about the equivalent $600 m losses ,of his trend Guru Richard Dennis.

Get your blinkers off , most intelligent traders will say the same.I trade in the market everyday , so I am not blind.Sometimes I TRADE TRENDS .

All the amateurs are taught and brainwashed with trend , trend and trend , until they get chopped out and lose money.

The professional talk about chop chop chop i.e trend failures.When we expose the fallacy or difficulty of actually making money from trend trading , we are the villains.

HINDSIGHT RESULTS TRADERS will confirm trends make consistent demo money going back 30 years of historical data. Therefore they are absolutely confident in making more demo money going forward. Then they lose and face "the enemy within".The have since changed their professions to trend gurus
