I'm fairly new to the world of trading, and have a question.
What do you think of a system where-- say you see a triangle narrowing into a pattern. It could breakout in either directions, and chances are that it will break out.
What if-- you got into the market with a simultaneous long/short orders and each had a tight trailing stop?
Then the market moves one way, your opposed order gets stopped out, and then assuming the market doesn't reverse immediately then, (and keeps moving) then you collect a few pips.
It almost seems too easy to be true. What am I missing?
