5 Signs of this strategy can be seen in the sample chart above. All stop-loss levels are marked with horizontal yellow lines on the graph. The first sign is for the short position with the stop loss close; take-profit is attainable here. The second is the bullish signal, which happens to be a pull-back fake, but fortunately, the stop loss is quite small here. The third signal is not the actual signal, because it is the bearish figure in the lower half of the window and left the ed form. The fourth signal is bullish with the stop-loss quite distant, but even the most aggressive level of take-profit can work here. The final signal is for short position, with stop-loss small and has many places to a very beneficial TP configuration.
Ideally bullish and bearish signals should follow one after the other but because of the appearance of false signals (downward in half low and upward in the upper half of the window) is not always so.
