That's right, and that's what I'm teaching myself now. He describes his strategy for the stop placement in detail - based on which of those 5 setups you're dealing with. The principle is that the stop is placed on the opposite side of the formation that you're trading.

e.g. for a pull-back in a trend where you think there's going to be some counter-trend traders trying to jump on a potential reversal, assuming you're looking at a stall in the pull-back where there's a high probability that the trend's going to resume, you put your stop at a point beyond the stall where the market would obviously be reversing and where your theory of a pull-back and trend resumption is invalidated. I guess you need examples to explain it best!

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
