I don't view pinbars as anything more than a curiosity but thought that I would mention this one. It is the the 1400 2 hour pin on Footsie.

Just in case anyone is interested. I hope that it works, because I am short, at present. I have been higher and running at a loss, but am now getting into profit.
Nice little setup splitlink, I am currently short the s and p so looking at something similar, let hope it works for both of us

Re: Pin Bar System

pocrel started this thread This is not a pin bar system setup but it has some elements, I love fading the 1.27 fib extension of the previous up trust, no need for a confirmation bar just enter at that level and ride it back to previous days high or previous weeks high which happen to be the same from yesterday. The zigzag indicator help to measure the the move just for anyone who wants to try something a little bit different, I find this works very well on the 1 hour time frame and also we should be close or at Average Daily range to reduce stoploss risk

I've been trying the SP, too, but have not been able to get too enthusiastic about it. I found it very slow, perhaps because it has been running sideways for a while. The Ft has a 1 point spread and, although it is OOH two hours after Wall Street opens, it seems to move the same and has more points to the move. Probably my imagination.

and there you go pattern complete, last weeks high becomes support now

I would always recommend having the previous weeks high and lows and previous days high and low and use them as support and resistance if your struggling to find levels

Re: Pin Bar System

pocrel started this thread Just to show people what I mean by using previous highs and lows

here are a few examples from today and this can be used on all time frames and the levels you might want to keep an eye, this is very easy support and resistance to mark on your chart, now just like anything else it does not work all the time and you should base your entry on a few other things

Not sure D70, not seeing alot of interest in it, 14 versus 2 at the moment not a huge interest so perhaps I should put it to bed

Selfishly I think you should keep the thread going. Price action and pin bars seem to be the way ahead to me, and I (along with many others I suspect) need all the help I can get.

Re: Pin Bar System

Really like this thread and your trading style. I traded 15 min pin bars using candlesticks before but found i was sat infront of the monitor for too long.

Using the same principal but on dailys.

Any ways well done your way ahead mate

Yes, I see your point but don't you think that the stop distance may make, even if they are occasional, losses more damaging when they get hit?

I know that many do trade on daily bars but I have never been able to accept those kind of losses.

Re: Pin Bar System

How about a short on $/Y at 7923 off the 11.30 pin? (IG Index charts-and not sure how to import them to this)
