As you can imagine, I feel like I'm learning to ride a bicycle all over again. Back then I would have held on to the handle bars a bit too firmly and not found my balance. In time I would have learned that it's not about over-control, and when I learned to ride I could take my bike handle all over the place with much ease and not lose balance or control.
In the trading situation, I'm probably looking too hard at the criteria for pattern identification - and probably holding on to them too rigidly. That's why I'm asking your view on levels of precision relative to Carney. For example Carney would say, "C Point within the range 0.382 and 0.886" (which is identical to Gartley requirement). Your C Point is at 0.946. I just wonder from your experience, how important it is to match Carney's criteria or how closely. I'm of course aware that it's very difficult to get the numbers to match the Carney criteria 100%, else one might never make a trade for weeks or months.
Your BAT pattern of 17 days ago seemed to match quite well standard Carney criteria https://goo.gl/289Ce3
If had come across setup of 01/10/2015 - at my stage of experience - I would have applied the Carney criteria and not considered it a valid BAT. I'm just trying to learn how to apply the criteria more flexibly. I'm not seeking a tutorial - just drawing on your experience. Many thanks.
