The way the price goes up and then dances around in a range reminds me of a book on trading written by Nicholas Darvas. He noted tradeable stocks went up, then bounced around in a box (Consolidation) then moved up again.
Nowadays we could do the same with shorts. Being an old git I prefer the simple things like support/resistance, consolidations, trendlines. moving averages, bollinger and good old MACD.
Being new here I notice people like yourself have a high standard of posting and are kind enough to share your thoughts with those of us intent on catching crumbs from your tables.
