  1. I trade the larry williams way. both
     
  2. Do you mean a "breakout" of the "daily" highs?? Monthly highs? or the last TICK??

    Is a "pullback" a "retracement"?

    Enlightenment comes first with thinking with precision, speaking with precision. Only then can you ever hope to trade with precision.

    :confused:
     
  3. However you choose to reasonably interpret it. It is neither my business nor my interest to get into the specifics of your trading method. I am only looking for general categorization.
     
  4. What person that calls themselves a "trader" would go long a "breakout" but never a "pullback". Or do you mean "fade" these?? SEE?! The question doesn't make sense.
     
  5. You need a "none of your damn business" category. :cool:
     
  6. LoL :D

     
  7. Perhaps. Even so, other respondents managed to vote.
     
  8. Yea, you missed this category:

    NUNYA

    NUNYA dam bizzness! :D
     
  9. Most of my trades are pullbacks on one time frame synergized with a breakout on another, if that helps any.
