trigger for the mentioned idea, what you want to see: clean impulse + choppy correction

download (11).pngOn the 4H there is a setup to support the buy above. ABC has formed in the corrective structure – not a perfect one but the buy is valid albeit early as the 1H downtrend is still intact and could have bought lower for an improved risk:reward.

Was initially waiting for price to reach that identified point where the upward trend line and supporting channel of the corrective structure meets. The market will never be perfect and thus placed a buy stop order which got wicked in. Set-up is on the daily, the 4H never made the ADX power criteria. What’s important: Price is on an uptrend and is retesting a level which was previously resistance – that’s a buy signal
