Excellent Article! I like to use a 50EMA on any time frame as a “dynamic” trend line. I find that works very well in conjunction with my harmonic fibonacci support and resistance levels for excellent confluence to locate low-risk buying opportunities in an uptrend and short selling opportunities in a downtrend. Checkout this recent post of these methods that yielded an awesome low-risk / high reward trade on the 30 Year US Bond Futures in today’s trading session http://www.patterntradinggroup.com/30-year-us-bond-futures-market-update/ Let’s keep in touch. I really enjoy the quality work on your site!
Thanks for your comments. I like your strategy too.
Good trading to you.
