I have been using this method for a while now,and I am pleased. The method is 100% rule based, and very mechanical. It does not leave a lot of room discretion. Follow the rules, and you will do well. I have taken the time to master the method by reading and internalizing the rules. I have also added 1 directional filter that works well. For those just starting this method, trad it purely as the author presented it. DO NOT DEVIATE, and you will do well. 3-6 months consistent practice, and you will see the beauty, simplicity and profitability of this method.
