  1. Hi Anthony,
    Would you be able to provide some insight into what are the indicators you have for your trade entry requirements? Many thanks.

    • Hi Ali, I use my own indicator that gives me support and resistance levels and a bias of direction. I use confirmation from simple moving averages. I don’t think that the indicators anyone chooses are what ultimately matters, it just has to be something that you are comfortable with and believe in. Stay consistent with whatever you choose as your indicators and get better at executing using those indicators.
