    Why this is not possible to treated as a complex pullback but as a fail pullback?

      I’ll take a stab at this. Some failed simple pullbacks do evolve into complex pullbacks. However, in this case the market has been pulling back for 2 weeks already which is about as long as the initial upthrust. Also, a complex pullback would target the lower keltner bands, perhaps a bit too far on this timeframe?
      I’d love feedback on this too as I’m currently doing the pullback research of the trading course.
