Let it break out on one side or the other and then show you that there are additional follow through buyers or sellers before you take a position. Don’t worry about “missing the move!” Trust me, there are always quality entries in the direction of the break out once you’ve seen the follow through buyers or sellers, if you are patient and know what to look for.
