Good morning everybody

I will start posting my trades here, as of now they will be paper trades as i am just back from ship.
I will also share strategies I have learned till now.
I trade basically with indicators ADX and RSI for intraday. These are used for entry and exits. I use Supply Demand zones, Demark Trend lines and fibonacci retracements in higher time frame to decide the market trend/range.
My trading timeframe is 3 minutes and I use daily chart as higher timeframe.

All members are welcome for suggestions and healthy criticism.

RSI is used to define market trend/range. As most of you might be knowing this that in an uptrend RSI travels in 40-90 zone and in downtrends it travels 65-20 zone. So generally in up trends markets will find support in 40-50 zones and resistance in 75-85 zones. Similarly in down trends it will find Support in 20-30 zones and resistance in 55-65 zones. In range it will travel from 40-65.
Signals from RSI are divergences and reversals.
Reversals can be used to fix the price targets.
I will keep on adding as and when I remember some points.

ADX is pretty straightforward, it helps is deciding strength of a trend.
ADX above 25 indicates strong trends and below 25 indicates range.
ADX values above 40-45 indicates trend is overstretched.
With DMI we can find either bulls or bears have upperhand.

I use 8 period ADX and 13 period DMI.
Hello manojborle
my compliment :clapping::clapping::thumb:

nice to see someone with clear ideas and can transfer then into writing
I used to use the ADX but didn't help me much (maybe I wasn't as good as you) but in my scalp I don't need many "tools" my way-plan anyway

keep it up... for me it is interesting all the same :)

1. Rsi trading near 75 zone, indicates up trend
with trend entry will be in 40-50 support zone
rsi falls below 50 @ 1130 candle, long above this candle @ 8241 with sl 8235
1224 candle goes above previous high & rsi fails to make new high & trade is exited @ 8260.

2. Rsi falls below 50 @1300 & long is above 1312 candle @ 8248 & sl 8239.
This is rsi positive reversal also for which target comes @ 8266.9
which is achieved @ 1418 candle.

Total trades : 2
total win : 2
total loss : 0
total profit/loss = 19 + 18.9 = 37.9 points

note: There are 2 counter trend trades also which are rsi divergences which i will skip until i master with trend trades.
Short @ 1254 @ 8262 and exit @ 8247 @ 1315
short @ 1418 @ 8263.95 & exit @ 825 @ 1451
