Trading Measured Moves is pretty simple if S2 (support point 2) is 2 points higher than S1 than you can mentally anticipate R2 (resistance point 2) being 2 points higher than R1. Or you can use a visually tools (TL channels) to help you visually anticipate. You can draw a TL Channel that connects S1 and S2 and then create a parralell TL and extrapolate it foward in time from R1. This is the essence of channel trading and SCT. Now there are 3 possiblities: 1. If R2 breaks the projected Resistance TL then that tells you that the uptrend has just Changed - it has strenghtened. 2. If R2 touchs the projected Resistance TL then that tells you the the uptrend Continues at an unchanged strenght. 3. If R2 doesn't touch the projected Resistance TL then that tells you the uptrend has Changed - it has weakened. SCT jargon for this is FTT. Now that you have an actualized R2 - (1) you can draw a TL from R1 and R2; (2) Make S2 the new S1; and (3) project a new TL from S1 to see where the projected S2 can be anticipated. The drawback of this method is that when the market moves sideways it pretty much just moves laterally breaking all TLs without ever breaking out. Also prepare to constantly erase and redraw channels as market action evolves. There are simpler trend following approaches. Also don't confuse drawing and redrawing hundres of TLs a day as consituting 'hard work'.
