That thrust on Oct 25, for example, resulted in a nice decline.
Is that what you are talking about?

dbphoenix started this thread No. For that particular period, that range is useful, but for the present, I was referring to the low on 9/12 and the high on 9/22.

dbphoenix started this thread Yes. You will have noticed, I'm sure, that the market has been news-driven ever since Brexit. This is challenging. However, it should be obvious even to those who don't trade price that we've been ranging ever since, and the principles of trading price still apply. It should also be obvious that the "reasons" the trade press -- and trading forums -- gives for all this movement is mostly imaginary, e.g., the "Trump rally". Rather it's just the same old ranging trending ranging trending.

Where are we?

I'm trying to figure out what is most relevant in regards to the NQ moving forward, weekly and daily charts attached.

Price had largely moved sideways from July 2015 until August 2016 when it eventually pushed higher but this BO didn't get far and price ranged again. The daily shows the most recent range and the new uptrend from the breakout.

Ranges can be used as a reset to track new demand supply balances, but, I wonder if its a mistake to overlook everything that led up to July 2015.

Learn from the past but don't get married to it.
