hi darren, thanks for the comment.
i haven't made the trade yet, just something that i'm exploring. i don't really like formations like shooting stars, dojis or any of the several candle patterns - i just find it too random.
the right shoulder is too low if you look at it horizontally, but as i've shown in the image, the head and shoulders formation is occurring inside the downtrend channel, so if you were to look at it after rotating the channel to be horizontal, you would see it's a perfect head and shoulders formation.
just testing it though, i really hate making trades against the trend so i'm waiting it out to see what happens.
