10:27   Shai : All of it put together to form 1 neat template – (10:23) Rajesh : #AMA#how does day report comes with buy ,sell levels…..does it based on only HVN.LNV,SINGLE PRINTS,POC,SPIKE….OR ANY OTHER specific method for exact buy sell level

10:31   Ashok82 : #AMA Shai, What does P or b profile indicate?

 

10:31   Shai : 80% rule is a movement which comes back into a previous VA and goes from one end to the other end and has a probability of doing so 80% of the time and referred to as such- (10:25) Sylvester : #AMA Shai I have heard the terms “Extension Handle” and 80% rule.

10:36   Neeraj : #AMA- how you identify a LLT…what amount of volume generally we consider that this a LLT…?

 

10:37   Shai : Minimum is decided by your broker, not us.
