This is something that I've been working on for the last few days. I'm inclining to return to swing trading with price action, but this time incorporating fundamentals + sentiment into my trades. I produced the following checklist for the pinbar candlestick pattern. After ticking each question, you add up the 'points' to see if it's a high-quality setup or not. It's a work-in-progress, but I used it to enter a EURNZD short recently.

From my current checklist, this pinbar scored a 9 out of 15 (so it's tradable).
