Many are stubborn in pursuit of the path they have chosen, few in pursuit of the goal. The..goal? To trade what U see... and that is not simple...cos we look at charts differently... and a SHS first become so when neckline is broken. If not ...it's just a pattern that looks like a SHS. If it becomes a valid pattern... I trade it with more caution than had it been a topping ...reversal pattern. I simply look for a fail or end of the pattern earlier. So in short.... I'm not dogmatic but trade what I see with the help of a pair of powerful spectacles. It has sometimes been sufficed to cure a person in love in dogmatic thinking. But do what suits U best.
It's not a matter of been right or wrong...as I state above. But making your entry with lowest risk. That is completely up to you to decide. I'm not trading oil at the moment but did last week.... I use another technique...and it pan out quite well. Safe trading:
