Hello sir. Let me admit firstly that even I am a learner. I do not trade looking at all patterns and hence do not know the exactness of the cup n handle pattern.
I trade only breakouts with volume so mostly the bull flag pattern. But I basically see the price action with volume at the levels where price has previously touched and reversed. . In short. When price breaks resistance levels with volume I buy and if price breaks below support with volume I sell. So I prefer to keep it as simple as this!
So I'm extremely sorry I cannot shed light on your doubts.
Thank you sir . I'm sorry I couldnt address your query! Happy trading to you too! :)
