Inner Vs. Outer Trendlines for Retests Following A Breakout

Just got done speaking for an hour re: a wide range of trading strategy concepts, this is one I wanted to post to bring in some immediate clarity.

For backward hits, using inner trendlines. In both examples, the outer (peripheral) trendline (the one most people normally draw) the backward hit was sacrificed for the inner trendline.   These are just two simple examples, but the concept is global.

In both examples, the number of hits on the inner trendline outweighs the hits on the outer trendline, thus adding the “weight” to the line itself. The same is true for horizontal support and resistance.
