This monthly chart taught me a few important lessons -
1. By trading a longer time frame - using day, week or even monthly charts, one is less tempted to adjusted one's stop loss or take profits too quickly. This also means less frequent in and out of the market which causes unnecessary emotional roller-coaster. Of course, this would not goes well for those who excel in shorter time frame like 1 hour or 15 mins chart and enjoy the adrenaline rush of quick profits. I had tried that but realised my temperament is more suitable for slightly longer time frame. Know thyself - Socrates
2. The chart clearly shows a formation and it is extremely . It hit a peak of 10,400 in 2015 before retracing to 9233 in 2016. Jan 2017 candle was a good buy entry and it also rebounds from the lower channel. If one needs more confirmation, one can wait for buy entry in June 2017 where price closed above 21EMA. Notice it breaks out of the upper channel and move nicely towards my profit target 1 and target 2. Current lower time frame indicates profit taking and pull backs , so wait patiently before entering the market. I expect it to hit profit target 3 by end of this year.
