# The 3 Skeleton Keys

#1 – Doing time.

Time is measured by the 4-hour stochastic. On an hourly chart this equates to 60 samples of HL2. No need for the D line.

The 4-hour stochastic can be acceptive or rejective.

If you have 4 hours or more printed with oversold / overbought stochastic readings, the time was sufficient for the invocation of the new range. If price got rejected before a full 4-Hour close in the periphery, it is likely to relapse to the 30 SMA to regroup and re-attempt further on.

The invocation is the second Skeleton Key, but is not today’s subject. All you need to know for now is that it calls upon a target, it starts a timer and you should take this trade unless the 3rd Skeleton Key is in strong opposition of this.
