I rely on candlestick patterns a lot in my trading.
I watch the candlestick patterns on H4 timeframe.
When I find the pattern I am looking for I plan a trade.
I use the concept of support and resistance also in my trading system.
Once I have a trade idea, I use a pending order to implement it.
The idea is to reduce the risk as much as possible.
I do it by using a pending order with a small stop loss of 10-20 pips.
