- Chart Patterns
Chart Patterns are formed by support and resistance levels and by trend lines.
- Cup and Handle
The cup and handle is a longer term continuation pattern, similar to an ascending triangle.
- Double Tops
Double tops are useful reversal patterns in an up-trend, identified by two peaks of similar height, followed by a break below the intervening trough.
- Head & Shoulders
A powerful reversal signal, the head and shoulders pattern is completed by a lower peak followed by a break below the neckline.
Support and resistance are the foundation stone of all technical analysis.
- Trading Ranges
Trading Ranges are formed by support and resistance lines in close proximity. Price fluctuates in a narrow band with no clear trend.
- Triangles & Wedges
Triangles and wedges can be powerful continuation or reversal patterns, depending on their shape.
- Triple Tops
Triple tops are similar to double tops and comprise three peaks of similar height.
- Short-Term Support & Resistance
Support, resistance and trading ranges.
- Flags & Pennants
Flags and pennants are short-term congestion patterns that form in trends and are reliable continuation signals.
Rectangles are narrow consolidations in a trend.
- Rectangle Signals
Rectangles are of the most reliable chart patterns when they appear in close proximity to support or resistance during an up-trend.
- Volume Patterns
Volume activity provides powerful confirmation of price signals and often gives advance warning.
- Bar/OHLC Charts
How to identify trends, control, commitment, uncertainty, inside and outside days.
Gaps are often found at breakouts or during a strong trend.
- Wide Ranging Days
A powerful signal, especially after big volume changes or a strong trend.
A spike is identified by a high sharply above the days on either side, a close near the day's low, and a strong preceding trend.
- Volume Spikes/Dips
There are two times where daily volume will highlight unusual trading activity: a spike above the normal range or a dip below normal activity levels.
- Candlestick Charts
Candlesticks contain the same data as a normal bar chart but highlight the relationship between opening and closing prices.
- Candlestick Patterns
Library of Japanese Candlestick Chart Patterns, displayed from strongest to weakest, in two columns: Bullish & Bearish Patterns.
- Candlestick Reversals
Library of Japanese Candlestick Reversal Patterns, displayed from strongest to weakest, in two columns: Bullish & Bearish Patterns. Reversals are candlestick patterns that tend to resolve in the opposite direction to the prevailing trend.
- Candlestick Continuations
Library of Japanese Candlestick Continuation Patterns, displayed from strongest to weakest, in two columns: Bullish & Bearish Patterns. Continuation Patterns are candlestick patterns that tend to resolve in the same direction as the prevailing trend.
- Consolidation Patterns
Consolidation Patterns are typically weak candlestick patterns that have close to an even chance of resolving in either direction.
- Trading Candlesticks
To improve Candlesticks accuracy, combine with Volatility, Volume, Support/Resistance and Trendlines.
- Heikin-Ashi Candlesticks
Heikin Ashi candlesticks filter out market noise from the traditional Japanese candlestick chart and highlight trend and/or consolidation patterns
- Reversal Days
Every trend change is signaled by a reversal day. The secret is to identify their potency.
- Closing Price Reversal
A powerful reversal signal, especially with a large spike after a strong advance...
- Hook Reversal
An inside day that signals a fairly weak reversal...
- Island Reversal
Island reversals are powerful signals, identified by gaps between the signal day and the days on either side...
- Key Reversal
Key reversal signals do not occur very often but are definitely worth the wait...
- Open-Close Reversal
Open-Close reversals are potent reversal signals when they follow a strong trend.
- Pivot Point Reversal
Pivot point reversals are the simplest and most commonly encountered of all reversal signals.
Point & Figure Patterns
- Basic Point & Figure Patterns
Basic Point and Figure chart patterns: Support and resistance, trendlines, breakouts, bullish and bearish signals.
- Bull & Bear Traps
One of the most reliable Point and Figure chart patterns, Bull Traps occur when an upward breakout retreats back below the new support level.
- Cup & Handle
Identify the cup and handle pattern on Point and Figure charts. Popularized by William J O'Neill (How To Make Money In Stocks).
- False Breaks
Similar to Point and Figure bull and bear traps, false (or marginal) breaks occur at minor support levels (from a previous low) or minor resistance.
- Bull & Bear Traps - Primary Index
Upward breakouts in a primary down-trend are notoriously unreliable.
Retracements (or corrections), during a Point and Figure trend, tell us about the strength of the trend.
An upward Point and Figure spike is where a rally exceeds the previous column of Xs by at least 10 boxes.
- Trend Reversals
After a Point and Figure up-trend, marginal new highs (especially where accompanied by equal or lower lows) indicate a loss of momentum.
For a valid Point and Figure triangle there must be at least two retracements counter to the prevailing trend.
