[1] Initial stop loss

[2] Trailing stop, as mentioned under management

[3] Manual exit due to change of momentum and break of market structure

[4] Take profit

Remarks: Seems that the continuation rectangle has failed (or maybe false breakout?). Since entry point (& breakeven stop loss) is at the 50% mark of the impulse wave, it is likely that price may come back to that level. If it does, with a bullish sentiment, will look to go long again. Took the trade out at 0.5R for now.
