    Hi Ashish, thanks for the question! Great that you are taking the time to seek clarification. We appreciate your initiative!

    In the video I should have mentioned that this trend line break was against the daily trend (which is indeed green). In some cases, when certain things lign up, then this is OK to trade (but only with more experience in trading DTT). The elements that were in favor of a trade were:
    1) downside momentum prior to the break
    2) upside was corrective
    3) well balanced support trend line break
    When these elements lign up, we sometimes attempt a riskier setup which is not alligned with the trend, but there has to be sufficient space and this pair did have that space back down to the bottom of the uptrend channel line.

    The break did not go as far as we wanted and via twitter recommended to move to break even. The defensive trade management is certainly connected to the fact that the 4 hour is neutral and daily is green.

    Thanks for the question and hope the answer clarifies it. Happy Trading!
