Hi St,

First signal was not activated and price went below the first candle low so canceled the order.

Kindly find below the chart where I have taken the short once the support of BULL-R1 taken out by price.

I took the short at the first fractal breakout.

regds,

Which pivots to use (daily/weekly) depends on your average trade holding period. Weekly pivots will be far away and are appropriate if you go for bigger swings (swing trading). Daily pivots are good for day trading. For longer trading timeframe - position trading - use weekly or monthly pivots.

For week the calculation is last 5 trading days (pivots are computed using H/L/C of last 5 trading days).

Respected ST Sir,

Can you please explain at what level I should be LONG and I should be SHORT using iCharts levels?

From the explanation I really did not understand exactly at which level I have to enter end exit.

What should be stop loss, etc?

Thanks,
Dharmesh Rana


Dharmesh,

I will try and post few examples (in a new thread in this forum) in the next few days. But to begin with, let me give you the basic idea behind using iCharts levels...

Try and avoid using only iCharts levels for buy/sell signals. I am not saying you cannot use, but it is much more helpful to use iCharts levels (or any other levels - pivots, fib pivots, cam levels etc) as one of your supporting tools for decision making.

The key support/resistance bands are BULL-R1 and BEAR-S1. Your buy or sell decisions should be based on where the price has opened on a particular day with respect to these levels. To support your decision making I would strongly recommend placing EMA(34) & EMA(89) on the chart for trend & key sup/res indication.

On a day if price opens in the BULL-R1 band and hits resistance there and does not seem to be able to break above it then you will look to short when price starts breaking down from this area. You decision will be much easier if the EMAs mentioned above are in/around BULL-R1 area (which happens many times). The same guidelines are suggested from going long around BEAR-S1 area. Your initial stops can be placed just beyond the key bands. Targets are the iCharts levels beyond. Stops can be trailed using the levels too.

Decision gets tricky if price has not opened near the bands. If price is within the two bands then the first targets is the one of the band (which one depends on the direction of trend to be gauged by using the EMAs). Once price reaches a band, there is good chance of a reversal. If price cleanly breaks through a band and consolidates above it then the trend can continue.

Will post examples in a different new thread over the next few days, it will then be more clear.


This question is to ST. I have been following the icharts levels for intrday trading. And follow the method explained by you. However, I am finding difficulty in trading with the levels on the days of substantial gap ups and gap downs. It will indeed be very helpful, if you can can elaborate as to how to make use of the levels on such days for trading.For instance a day like today. I use 10m tf for NF and 5m tf for Bank Nifty.

On such gap days (that result in trend days) one just needs to buy on breakout of a level and keep trailing stops (just below key swing lows), targets would be higher levels. But it is important to make sure that the gap open is above BULL-R1 band. This indicates true strength (like today).

If, on the other hand, the gap up at market open turns out to be a high and market reverses and breaks a lower iCharts level then it would be a short with SL above the previous higher level. The targets would be lower levels, mainly, BULL-R1 then LOC then BEAR-S1. If market is reversing from above R1 then there would be a chance of reversal in BULL-R1 band and the uptrend may continue, this would indicate strong upmove for the day. If BULL-R1 breaks then BEAR-S1 would be likely in this case as the break of BULL-R1 would indicate significant weakness.

Which pivots are you using? The JCharts built-in pivots?

Hi,

I have asked @ProTrader to post some info about this. He had worked on building these levels. He will post some info about this soon.

Hi Girish,

The reversal levels are strong support and resistance areas from where scrips may make move in the either direction once they are reached or breached.

The daily and intra day levels equivalent is S1 and R1.

Hope this helps.

Happy trading.

Regards,
PT
