Feel free to skip this intro-rant, I have a lecture of substance right after. Look for the separator line.

Fragile, like a mental in your state.

This is England, we don’t go anywhere without slogans

So let’s put up

Feel good, but trade better

Share and Enjoy

Have your say and eat it too

Like a kiss from the Waitrose

And let’s go all out on what (Tricia) McMillan did when they spent their cancer support money on covering up red buses in green saying

“A life with cancer is still life”

This is wrong on so many levels.

1. For starters, spend that advertising money on cancer research instead.

2. A bus with stupid slogans is still a bus.

3. Life, don’t talk to me about life.

For an Eastern European, anecdotes, like these ring home:

– What is the matter with you, you look like the life!

In fact, in Hungary the average male life expectation was 56 years not long ago. My father lived to be just that. Maybe that’s the final solution to pension funds, Ripley.

I knew there 3 people who committed suicide during my 27 years of stay, and knew 2 in the US in 12 years. I worked for one, of them the other was a neighbor – tenant, not 3 but 1 door down. I must be a bad influence.

The point here is that it is best not to be reminded of life.

I had the perfect hand going into April: 3.6 lots long, no shorts. I ended up dumping out the longs prematurely, at a loss, and went extra long 4.4 lots 600 yards from the goal post. If only I was paying any attention to what I’m about to teach you.

I should had taken my 1000% gains for 8 moths, close out everything and tell the broker to put me in a Pro account. I can’t seem to think straight when they are constantly ripping you off with swap. Now I’m being penalized with time. The take away here is to have short term goals made clear.

There are some old cliches such as that an uptrend is made of higher highs and higher lows, and that topping is a process while bottoming is an event.

Now, in the foot-light of the channeling research we are trying to determine where a channeling move ends.

Thanks to the previous blog entries you have gained practice in spotting the start of a channeling move.

What you are looking for afterwards (in our first example – the uptrend) is a Lower Low, which is going to be followed by a Higher High or multiple higher highs without price making any significant progress. An additional 16 or so pips is not progress, that is merely half of a normal fluctuation size.

Nobody taught me about what a fluctuation size is and what half of that was good for. These things are my own findings, and there is no literature elsewhere on the subject. I do realize how strange it may sound to hear from someone frequently taking 2.5 pip gains that 16 pips equals no progress – that’s how life is: a mix of a bunch of things that seem to contradict each other on face value.

Fractals can help to spot the change in the sequence, but 1H may be to insensitive to do this – unless you are using my Modified Fractals routine – the source was posted among the blog entries. I only changed the rhombus (boy’s best friend) size and the color for the current image.

You are not going to be gaining anything extra from going below 30 mins, only lose orientation.

Remember the ripple circles?

channeling is on when the 2nd outer fractal gets exceeded by more than 4 pips or if the 3rd spike beyond the E-89 recovers

active channeling has 6 or 12 pullback entries

first 3: beyond E-16

second 3: beyond E-32

third 3: beyond E-89

fourth 3 beyond E-16

active channeling ends with a new Tough Cookie print in its direction (now with golden tail highlight), LL / HH projection zones and stochastic bar sequences are there for confirmation
