Something that separates a trader from an investor is the fact that we don't care which way the market goes. Our job is only to take advantage of the opportunity when it occurs. IF the market goes down, THEN we know where our next buy is and IF the market rallies, THEN we know where our next sell it. Now all a trader must do is bracket their orders and stops and wait to see which path the market decides to take.
Structure traders may want to look for intraday opportunities on the lower timeframes as well.
Don't you think that in the case of the bullish Gartley pattern you revealed us in this chart we could get a chance to be both be traders and investors ? Some people seem to see the 1180 region as the end of a 4 waves correction from the 2011 high and the beginning of potential long term rally.
