But the best way in our case is using trendlines which is the first part of trendline trader. As you can see from the above fig 1. When choosing the contact points to create a demand line we are looking at support line or lowest low of a candlestick with one or more between the left and right side.

You take the highest high created above the demand line and mark it with a vertical line. What that means is Tom Demark Trendline price projection are base on his observation with market patterns and proabilities.
We can never predict where price will advance however patterns had repeated and base on patterns alone we can judge the proabilities of it being gone a certain way. Hence depending on which level of trader you are I would move my stoploss to breakeven once price has move to more then 15 pips and locked in 15 pips once price move more then 20pips and so on. Lets see how the trade unfold after it breakout of the demand line. However if you notice once price breakout from the demand line it is a panic behavior with no stop to reverse to bring in more bears.
