    Thanks for this LC.

    I realise I’m very late to the party – but LC can you comment on the scale of the 1-2-3 that officially ends the fourth push attempt?

    In the original ES example (1-2-3 buy at 1315) there are many ‘candidate’ 1-2-3’s that happen before 1315 – why are they ignored? This goes, I suppose, for many of the 1-2-3 triggers that you’re using in the chart pattern explanations – the scale and shape of the trigger 1-2-3 isn’t clear.

      Time. Prefer a reversal swing to have some significance.

      i.e. swing visible on 5-min is better than swing only visible on 1-min but not on 5-min or higher timeframe.

    Hey, are you still open to giving more variation of the three pushes? I am interested and would need your help in perfecting these pushes. Please respond when you have free time. Thanks
