    I am finding that fast extrapolated moves, after Block creation breaking market structure, are the blocks that are making price the most sensitive to them. here is just one 30min chart from Friday, keeping in mind price was coming down from a weekly block level

    PS: i know i put a few words in the tittle, its for google hunters looking to trade forex, to find
    FXgears when the forex world gets a sniff of what Block Trading might be...

    "blocks" are kinda like expansion vs contraction periods in price.. or range vs breakouts... or if you add a time element: session opening/lunchtime/closing/etc.. range breakouts..

    All slightly different, but all having overlapping common elements.

    What's ICT's slant on it?

    Knowing where they are and where price will react again. He's got an extra advanced way to do it that I can't really explain quite yet, as there are actually very specific signs when it's happening in real time, but that will take ICT a bit more time to work out for teaching. (If anyone else was in that webinar, you know the "popping" parts ICT was highlighting)

    It's use, at the moment, is really powerful Intraday, given the market. In trending markets, you can get a while before returning to major ones, but they are on every time-frame. I've highlighted a trade I took where the USDJPY spent all of 15 minutes at the level, before dropping 40 pips.

    Fiber - it does not get much better than this does it, peeps.
    I can see people are catching onto Michaels set ups pretty well, including me.
    So i created a saying for myself

    I can only trust it, if i see it. If i cannot see it, how can i trust it?

    I am trading EURJPY atm, as it is working some crazy levels, inside the "monthly" block that it is currently in. look at the reaction levels all round. This is my favourite pair atm.
    The Monthly block has already provided over a 4000 pip sell off, from 2009, then returned. The return has seen price go beyond this Monthly block now, so i am unsure where price will head from here, i will be eyeing off sell set ups and buy set ups together.

    Note: NZDJPY chart, second favourite, really watching to see if this monthly block will have some impact

    THB - twelve hour block break out, after a channel correction

    2 candles per day!

    Pound could be just getting started, something needs to correct the Dollar, in my view

    Nice chart. Are you using MT5?

    Do you mind saying which broker you use? I found MT5 difficult to find in Aus. I trialled Vantage FX but didn't like their MT5 spreads. I also am attracted to the wider range of time frames. I have created them in MT4 as offline charts but was never happy with this workaround.

    For the MT5 charts, i use a demo account through ]https://www.ironfx.com/en]

    MT5 download, probably have to open a demo account with them, to get it going https://www.ironfx.com/en/trading-platform MT5 metaquotes download
