The bigger question is how will you "adapt" when the market eventually changes - i.e., enters a dull trading range, or change to a bear market

I'll look for stocks breaking support rather than stocks breaking resistance. As far as consolidation goes, that's just part of the game but I tend to not trade stocks that are too range bound.

Just took DECK short actually at 63.53 / stop at 74.70

Can't say I'm happy about my entry on amzn. Paid at the highs and once again it sold off near market close into a bearish pin bar. Unless the market turns around soon, I'm getting stopped.
