(ASSUMING AN UPTREND) Here are my thoughts. Either way there's a possibility to get stopped that goes without saying. Now, The Confirmation Way Waiting for confirmation might stop you without the higher low actually failing, forcing you to re-enter, unless you place a stop below the higher low but that implies a bigger stop. Now is the confirmation offering a false sense of security considering you can still get stopped ? On the other hand, every HL holding, has a confirmation, so perhaps this increases accuracy. The Higher Low Prediction Way When price gets to the potential area of Higher Low, enter on red candle, aka selling, place stop on what would make the area fail. No confirmation, no sense of security, but only one try, the stop is potentially smaller. Please discuss help a newbie out.
