Comment: We have a break .. let's wait for momentum
Comment: CPI coming up in just over an hour .. so be careful
Comment: T1 at the red line
T2 at the top of the kumo
After we reach there we will reconsider our situation
You mentioned momentum. There are many ways to construe momentum. How would you define it. Thank you
long candles..
long means longer than the average size of the candles around it
The longer the better
The indicator below your chart, do use that as well to confirm or question momentum. Momentum has often fooled me, thinking I see it and it was merely a head fake. Thanks
The indicator at the bottom shows momentum but it will be too late but the time it registers it in a breakout situation so I do not use it for that

Is what just happened in Kiwi a good example of momentum? I see a fat candle on the 4hr and daily (strong momentum?). Gold went up as well. I don't see a corresponding fat candle even though it broke a trend line (weak momentum?). Thank you for the feedback. good that your back. this is helpful.
we can not determine if a candle has good momentum before it closes...
If we take gold as an example, the candle that broke-out and closed was a nice candle (not super) and it closed outside the triangle .. so all that is good
Personally, I like to take the candle on the break with a small position size then decide what to do after the close. So for this, I would have bought the breakout and would now be considering another position on the retracement of the breakout candle with my stop for both positions just below the same candle.
Good and helpful discussion on identification of momentum.
good to hear ...

Hi I have been reading from the Educational and I think there is one note that says to never trade when the price is in the cloud, now it looks like that the momentum can happen just then when the price is in the cloud will You still go long or one has to wait for the price to leave the cloud first?
that note about not trading in the cloud relates to trading the KS method specifically. Other than that, I trade in the cloud all the time. Infact, it is the best place to get very nice breakout trades

Thank You for your fast answer good to know but to be able to do that one has to be quite an expert I believe or there is a reason why as once the Ks has starting to move from flat to up or down then even if the price is in the cloud it is OK to enter the trade. Maybe I better read all the Educational stuff first and then post a comment.I have to thank You for those articles really very instructive
Thank you
yes .. please do read through it

Sorry I forgot to ask You one more important thing I believe is worth wile to ask I see that the chart is 4hr one but if one change it on the 1hr it shows very clearly that the breakout has already happen and even past the cloud. What I like to ask is there a reason why You are following the 4hr one and not the 1hr one? Thanks a lot for your answer
I trade all TF but once I'm on a chart, I never refer to another
That way, you will stay focused
