Tradeable and Non-Tradeable Pressure Indicators are shown below as learning examples.
.
“Never trade against the pressure” is a common statement in the group. Generally this is true, but various of the trade methods listed in this website actually are designed to trade against weaker pressure signals. How can these trade methods be proposed in contrast to the Group wisdom?
.
♦  Nearly 50% more profitable trades are available by prudently counter-trend trading. This is a skill that any advanced day trader should master as part of their trading skill set.
.
♦  Realize that the Pressure Indicator is a lagging indicator, while the Major-Minor Indicator is a leading indicator. As such there are very few trades that occur where all the lagging Pressure Indicators and all the leading Major-Minor Indicators align in the same direction. As such, one must trade against weaker pressure indications.
.
♦  Trading against the Pressure Indicators is a matter of context. It has been found that when trading with the more powerful 240M or 120M Pressure or Major-Minor Indicators, that the 5M, 15M, 30M, and most often the 60M Pressure Indicators have no bearing on the trade. As such, simply discount these Pressure Indications when trading larger times. If trading shorter times, then the shorter Pressure Indicators become more important.
.
♦  It has been found that there is a close similarity and behavior between the 120M and 240M Pressure and Major-Minor Indicators. As such, under certain weaker 240M Pressure Indicator conditions, the leading 120M Major-Minor Indicator will lead the 120M and 240M Pressure Indicators and lead them in a new direction or the 240M Pressure Indicator will tolerate some 120M movement against due to the somewhat powerful market influences the 120M Major-Minor Indicator represents.
.
Important is to experience the relationship between the Daily, 240M, 120M, 60M, 30M, 15M, and 5M Major-Minor and Pressure Indicator behavior.

Trade Guides
Below are examples of the type of Pressure Indicator signals that determine two conditions:
1. Is there a trade.
2. What is the strength or risk of the trade.
.

BUY TRADES


240M Pressure Condition (Pressure Angle Shown):**

25 PIPS    Strong Buy        90° to    45°
20 PIPs    Typical Buy        45° to      0°
15 PIPS    Riskier Buy          0° to   45° ***
  0 PIPs     No Buy Trade  – 45° to – 90°
.
More Conservative and Sure Take Profit:
• Use 0 / 10 / 15 / 20 PIPs.
• Or use 0 / 5/ /10 / 15.
• Skip any trade that feels out of sorts.
.
** Other Take Profit Determinations:
• Trade more situationally (coaching).
• -5 PIPs or +5 PIPs situationally.
• Click close at max, if session allows.
• 5 – 10 PIPs is an emotional bump.

SELL TRADES


240M Pressure Tradability (Pressure Angle Shown):**

25 PIPs    Strong Sell       – 90° to – 45°
20 PIPs    Typical Sell       – 45° to     0°
15 PIPs    Riskier Sell           0°  to  45° ***
0 PIPs      No Sell Trade       45° to  90°
.
More Conservative and Sure Take Profit:
• Use 0 / 10 / 15 / 20 PIPs.
• Or use 0 / 5/ /10 / 15.
• Skip any trade that feels out of sorts.
.
** Other Take Profit Determinations:
• Trade more situationally (coaching).
• -5 PIPs or +5 PIPs situationally.
• Click close at maximum, if session permits.
• 5 – 10 PIPs is an emotional bump.
*** Must show some divergence, that the pressure will follow the movement of the 120M MM.

Pressure Examples 
Attempts were made to give more difficult examples that could go one way or the other. There are some simple to interpret examples to provide that context as well.
Note that what is stated about a buy or a sell Pressure Indicator signal would apply to in the opposite direction of a sell or buy Pressure Indicator signal is the same image was inverted.  Meaning comments for an upward trend are the same for a similar downward trend.
.
TT = Trend Trading – Trading with the market price, the pressure, etc..  
CT = Counter Trend Trading – If the market price, pressure, or other indicator is up, the trade placed is down, and visa versa.
MM = Major-MInor Indicator.
PI = Pressure Indicator.

These charts are simplier to read than possibly first imagined. Once understood, day trading success opens up more to you.

Becoming proficient at counter-trend trading is only a matter of experience paper trading until some initial mastery emerges.
