Andrea provided a number of tips in this episode, here is my favorite:
- The traditional approach of looking for a setup and then a trigger can limit the possibilities to read the markets and so Andreas approach of defining a trigger first, whether it be a breakout or limit entry or something else, and then using that as a base to study the surrounding setups, can give us a broader variety of possibilities to understand how markets move or could react.
