TRADE MANAGEMENT
Here are some trade management techniques which you can use:

lock profits by trail stopping it by moving your stop loss and placing it behind swing high or lows so there is less chance of you getting stopped out prematurely if you plan to ride out the trend.
move stop loss to break even if price moves by the amount risked.
consider closing half of your position if price moves by twice the amount risked and let the other to run or to hit your take profit target.

DISADVANTAGES OF THE TRENDLINE TRADING FOREX TRADING STRATEGY
All forex trading strategies have weaknesses and the trendline trading strategy is no exception:

price can break and not obey the trendline.
sometimes, the price will just come within a few pips of the trendline and not really touch it and move away.
sometimes, price tricks by breaking the trendline only to reverse later and obey the trendline.
So you should be aware that such things can happen and expect them.

ADVANTAGES OF THE TRENDLINE TRADING STRATEGY
the risk to reward ratio of the trendline trading strategy is really great.
its based on price action.
if the setup is good, you can sell at the very top and buy at the very bottom of the price swing whilst keeping a very tight stop loss which really also has a very less chance of getting stopped out prematurely.

USE REVERSAL CANDLESTICKS WITH THE TRENDLINE TRADING STRATEGY
A better way to trade the trendline trading strategy is to use reversal candlesticks as your trade entry confirmation.

What do I mean by that?

Well, when you see price heading up to a falling (downward) trendline, look for bearish reversal candlesticks like these as price touches the trendlines to sell:
