Anticipation allows you to control risk and get into setups early or as they are breaking out. Anticipating a breakout helps improve your per trade profits. It can also lower your risk as your stop is close. It can help you profit from even smaller moves.
Anticipation requires more pre planning and effort then buying a breakout. You need a process flow to do that. The process should be done daily and followed consistently.
To find Anticipation setups focus on stocks with established momentum. That helps you improve your probability of breakout working.
