how to dictate if always in long/short when trading MTF and conflicting biasts?
hello i have just started the course and i am used to multi time frame analysis .i am getting confused as to what dictates always in long or short. for example , the m15 could be always in long as bullish , but the m5 may have switched bearish to fasilitate an m15 pull back , if m5 is my entry , am i always in long/short with my entry time frame ? so even if an m15 pull back may be in a place where the swing low/high has a high probable chance of forming but m5 still gives entry signs for shorts , am i still always in short ? only 20 videos in so far so not sure if this is covered later on in the course ? thanks in advance
High Lloyd, the Brooks always in long or always in short method only looks at the one time frame.
HTFs may influence your decision on whether to swing or scalp or whether to expect more buyers or sellers above/below some HTF bar. But the AIL/AIS decisions are always with respect to the timeframe you're actually trading. If you're executing on the 5M then that's where you look for the always-in direction.
thank you both , appereciate the help
