  1. What is your trading philosophy (what determines your trades)?
  2. Nearly all of the choices are a by-product of price action.
  3. This argument could for any question, like

    "Do you trade options, futures, stocks, or bonds?

    And saying

    "Nearly all of the choices are a type of instrument."

    True, but uninformative.

    Technical Analysis (setup/pattern) confirmed by Price Action (entry/trigger).
  6. price action with bollinger bands
  7. Some of the zero responses are quite interesting...
  8. I think price action alone via charts should be a different poll option than price action alone via the T&S and order books. I trade off the prints and books, not charts.

    I think those who think they are trading off of price action alone are actually employing TA on some level, whether they are cognizant of it or not. So I would argue that price action is a subset of TA.
