I love it, the concept is basically "damage control" by the players big enough to move the market (lookin at you CBs). Their positions go Negative, but luckily they ARE the market so they take it back down to BE and collapse positions. It works best when one side of the market clearly got caught with their pants down and will need to scramble to get out. That's my take on it, worth the study.
Just think of it like this. NFP is creating order blocks for next week. Whatever NFP does, you can be sure to capture most of it next week on a NFP block.rod178 said:precise, yes indeed. Some Traders use similar setups to trade post News big moves. Something to investigate further.
Got my RR 1:1 by standing in front of a Steamroller pre NFP, I'll have to stop doing that.
