Here's my today EU trade. I've placed my stop/position at the extreme.

Now I ponder, was it possible to avoid that loss?
Sure it was. If only I had space of 31 pips I would have gained easy 100 pips.
But wait, then it would not be position at the extreme but 16 pips away from it.

So my question is do you always place your stops/positions exactly at 2d+ extremes, or do you oversize your space sometimes?

Are these zones accurate using the CS_mod indy?

If I understand the concept right, zones are measured from actual extreme so yes, they are accurate.
But maybe I misunderstood the whole concept..

You are looking for the pretty when you should be looking for the ugly [-X

Breakouts define triangles, there exists no triangle without a breakout.

The basic pattern is a hook with a breakout that hooks.

If you draw the triangle incorrectly (without BO) then your channels are already lost (you are setting yourself up to trade false BO).
