The Missing Link, Part 1 by Mircea Dologa

Waves & Boxes

The relationship between time and price has a direct influence on trading profitability. Here’s a look at how you can gain an insight by looking at the euro and the Romanian leu.

You can then identify the optimal time frame setup that works for you, one that consists of the most efficient elements of modern technical analysis.

Establishing the trading context

Many traders misunderstand the usage of these waves mainly because of the lack of a probabilistic approach. Without probability, there wouldn’t be a successful trading technique — classic or modern.
