The above chart shows the GBP/USD 3hr chart. By paying attention to
the natural square level of 1.5700 we can 'sell short' the British Pound
AFTER the double top OR AFTER the triple top has formed. (Or any lower
top) We know there is a high probability that price will fall from this
point. But where can we place our profit target to close our short

natural square level that is above a prior low. In the chart above we
notice that this level is at 1.5550.
Or we could exit the position in any of these different ways;
1. We could wait for a double bottom to form before exiting the position. Or
2. We could wait for a swing high to be broken. Or
3. We could wait for price to close above the 7 period exponential moving average. Or
4. We could wait for price to close above the 7 period exponential moving average based on the 1 hour chart. Or
Follow with a trailing stop loss above the prior bar high.(In this case
it will be above the prior 3 hr period as the example is shown on the 3
hour chart. Or
6. Follow with a trailing stop loss above the prior hour high. Or
7. Follow with a trailing stop loss above the prior 15 minute high. A example of how this work is shown here.
