BPCL - example of how expanding triangle can make trading difficult

My kplswing indicator gave so many signals - all of which failed on daily charts.

Multiple whipsaws mean you should either reduce value of N to say 5 or view the same chart in higher timeframe.

Now here is the weekly chart... the expanding triangle is clearly visible... a new high is followed by retest of recent lows and so on. Treacherous trading environment.

Summary - after 2-3 whipsaws in any timeframe, either zoom out to get a better perspective or shift to a higher timeframe.
