Jim makes some important & very valid points in that post. Just because price prints a higher high & a corresponding higher low in a perceived downtrend, doesn�t mean the dominant bias is over.
It also doesn�t necessarily mean you can�t trade the opposite view.
If you�ve got a plan for identifying & managing that scenario, then as long as you can locate adequate risk, you can take it on.
The higher high/higher low (& vice versa) steps can offer pretty cool risk-reward shots on the lower timeframes if you can plot potential upside/downside targets as well as realistic stop-loss (risk) placement in case it fakes you out.
Picking up from Jim�s circled area on his 60min frame around the 11th-12th, if you drill down into the 15min & allow the price action to pan out a while, you can better prepare for a potential �long� against the main trend thrust.
Sure, price needs to prove itself, but if you hang your hat on this peak-trough behavior stuff & it affords you a sensible risk angle then the choice is yours as far as taking it on.
There�s certainly sufficient upside room to allow for a 100-150 pip hike to the previous swing high @ .8130. So, a risk measure of approx 30pips off that outside bar trigger at that higher low pullback level (highlighted inside the square), offers up a potential 1:3 or 1:4.5 shot, depending on your trade management skills.
If you�re one of James� 40-100 IB strategy disciples, then you had yourself multiple opportunities to compound or add-in along the way as the price action opened out.
As Jim say�s, be careful bout taking comments on face value. Unless you know exactly what the poster is trying to impart, it leaves comments open to mis-interpretation - & that can cost you an awful lot of lost time, opportunities & money.
