Thanks for the annotated charts and the 10 days of clean charts. Allen thanks for your ES chart as well. I believe the modus I will maintain is to critque and add drills that address the critique, all in a trading context. Each subject vis a vis critiques will be classified as well. In this way we keep current on what the mind is requesting to help it fill in the inference spectrum. Allen's illustrations show how cases are codified in yellow containers and he also shows the lateral case as a blue box container. the bar timing is also included. If a bar shows 15"00 for a bar that is the END of the bar time. The pattern is contained in a parallelogram on each fractal level. Three points determine a parallelogram as discussed in a thread on channels. A parallelogram is often called a channel. I use a heirarchy of names for each of the nested fractalls. As you log the columns you will find that each column has a set of nomenclature and there is a lot of common nomenclature. I use quickly scribable symbols as well. C is continue for me and X is change, for example. Frenchfry will succeed at annotating soon and he can use Allen's illustrations to help out as he learns. Another poster who has contributed information is Mr. Black. What is nice about his workmanship is that he correlates trades with the annotations on his charts. Mr. Black is European and he trades the US market. The start up transition in annotating is a building process and as time passes the charts become very comprehensive in terms of degapped nested fractal. this is when "continuity of the markets arrives consciously for the trader. As we see annotation can use weighted and color coded line segments. cloning/duplicating permits both items to be handled automatically.
