What does everyone do when it comes to placing a trade and the charts ain't running in correlation with each other... for example if im trading an fx pair i look at the chart before say D1 then come back to the H4 chart, but what do yous do when when the d1 is showing oversold/about to make its way up while the h4 charts about to make it's way down... normally with the h4 if the day charts moving up and the h4 is already up it'll stay up or have a slight drop and move back up and to make it more annoying it'll probably be a down trend so if you buy it's gonna be short lived..out of this you could say go long as the day charts moving up.. but I'm not really a day chart person and because of this i find myself stuck on a place to enter and if they're playing games like this i just end up sitting on the sidelines and not trading, what do yous do in this situation?

True @TrendFollower,  there are plenty of opportunities to trip up along the way which is why it takes such a long time to develop a working strategy. Though this might be controversial I have long believed there is a list of importance of things to learn and number one is entry signals. Finding an entry method where you are not routinely caught trapped is of the most importance. Only recently did I find someone who seems to agree when I saw this posted on twitter by Steve Burns.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
