Power Of Triangle Breakouts and the Phenomenal Risk to Reward

I was banking on this as the final fall back. Combined with Support and Resistance Breakout and Retest, I saw value in entering this trade and risk reward was favorable.

In the end the strategy paid off and the market responded to the support , breakout and major rally.

Note : Though you see the SL being triggered on the charts , the position was not exited
