1) both of those angles are not 15 degrees.
2) no, one cannot know the exact angle, but 15* will always be closer to the channels speed than any other angle.

The angles stay at 15 degrees regardless of horizontal compression; the only requirement is that a chart runs from
the top to the bottom 90% of your chart at the time that they are drawn and that the chart is scale-fixed moving forward.


Im sure I missed it so what are you using to draw these angles correctly without holding a protractor up to my screen?



These are 15 degrees:

I am sure that there are all kinds of fancy explanations for this price action, but thinking in cones and pennants, "diamonds of perception", is by far the
simplest way to go about it.

Baby steps for me and my angled line drawing journey (ascending triangle I think?), haha. I might not be able to draw angles yet, but your concept of price increases by 2 and decreases by half is always on my mind and I mentally look for it, until I get better at angles.

Baby step #1: only draw 15 degree lines.

I only use two types of triangle, cone & pennant.

A set of paper charts, delivered each week, of the daily weekly & monthly charts, stick-it notes, a red pen (because the charts were black), & a phone is all that I had to trade with back in the day.

My intraday chart was calling the broker every 30 minutes for quotes; based on the closed candle & what price was doing during the day is
how I managed open trades.
At the end of the day I would call the broker to update the daily charts; I am sure that he could have faxed me the information, but I think
that he liked chatting with me :lol:

There were no thoughts of ticks, I risked so many "lines", I targeted so many lines, & I had 4+ month OTM options as a hedge; the price of which was so many lines or "linelettes" of added risk (later I would cut outrights out completely, but that is another story).

People always ask how trading can be easy, but when you tell them they always say "no, no, no, I need $1,000,000 by tomorrow morning, how can I do that?"
