Are you really trying to read the prices while day trading?
First please go through the mid day post to understand the price action better.
If you really try to read the price action, then you would not hesitate to short at Range High and buy at PDL. Every possible way to read the prices has been discussed in my video tutorial. I have discussed there when to avoid trading, how to read the weakness and strength of prices, how to read the volume, and when to think about taking a positional trade. Combination of all these produced two good trade setups.
