rathcoole_exile started this thread thanks Joey, not sure there's much i can teach you, you seem to be doing ok.

there was a text book bounce off S1 at 1236.
i didn't take it, i might be done for the day already unless something stands out.
over to Gold now, 'cos that's looking a bit interesting ....

and tight loss stops at 1256.50, 1255.50 & 1255

ticks vs time

rathcoole_exile started this thread two noteworthy points -

look at the beautiful short divergence on the tick chart that isn't so obvious on the time chart

and secondly, on the time chart, look at the significant role that Pivots play

which chart would you rather observe ?

me ....... both !
