Yes, they were both valid 3 Duck setups for going short.
For the first setup you marked, I went short (sell) @ 1.1560 with the S/L @ 1.1582. From the small S/L, I knew this was going to most probably be a relatively short run which I could monitor, so I did not set up a T/P but was mentally targeting a 3:1 ratio if things went well.
Also, because I believed it would be a short run, I also put up my Chandelier Exit Indicator (Period 60, Ratio 6 ATRs) in case swing points did not form. After a while, I then decided to set the T/P at 1.1500 (psychological level) and enabled an EA to track the order and to close it if it should hit the Chandelier Exit.
I kept monitoring the trade manually every now and then, while setting the S/L to swing points – first @ 1.1550, then later another swing point formed, but since it did not vary much from the previous one, I left the S/L as it was.
After the third swing point, I set the S/L to 1.1523 which got triggered about an hour and a half later.
Gain R:R ratio was (1.1560-1.1523)/(1.1582-1.1560) = 37/22 pips = 1.682
For the second setup, I was away but would have taken it somewhere @ 1.1535 and would have set the S/L @ 1.1565. I would have put up my Chandelier Exit Indicator (Period 60, Ratio 6 ATRs) and set my EA to close the trade for me if it got hit and due to this, I would have not set a T/P. And since I was away, I would not have been present to adjust S/L to swing points, so the trade would have been closed by the Chandelier Exit @ 1.1482 on the next day. It would have been a good trade had I been present.
Gain R:R Ratio = (1.1535-1.1482)/(1.1565-1.1535) = 53/30 pips = 1.767
PS! I almost always monitor trades on the M5 chart, so my Chandelier Exit is on my M5 chart! Also, my S/L is never exactly on the swing point price, but a little bit off considering the spread as well. Please note that the Chandelier Exit Indicator that I use is of my own design using EMA for the ATR and also tracks a trailing stop. However, any standard Chandelier Exit indicator can be used for the purpose.
