Think about it, in any line of work, you want to follow the most successful people. Don't try to fight the market so you can tell your family members and friends you were trading all day.
If you are trading low float stocks, you need to be prepared for the possibility of 6% to 65% losses. A classic approach you can use is to place your stops below the breakout candle and even this at times can present mid to high single-digit percentage losses.

You are probably saying to yourself, well I can place a buy order above the first 5-minute candlestick and a sell short order below the low of the candlestick.

Thanks for the tweaking of an already great indicator! Couple of questions:
6) Article says to use Default settings of 69,8,8 but in the example box it says 69,8,6 not a great difference but I want to be sure of the right settings.
7) I have tried a 8-bar Strategy in the past but found it difficult to spot (I missed a lot of them). Do you have or know of a 8-Bar Fractal Indicator that will mark this pattern like the standard 5-Bar Fractal Indicator? I have found only one on line and it was quite expensive to purchase (I am too cheap).
8) Is the Stop Loss placement based on the previous 8-Bar Pattern or is it based on a 5-Bar Pattern?
