Trading ABC Patterns by Suri Duddella in Modern Trader Magazine (Dec. 2016)
The ABC Chart pattern and its related AB=CD Chart Pattern are prime examples of "Symmetry" in the markets. These "Harmonic" patterns help traders to identify buying and selling opportunities in all markets and in all time-frames. The ABC and AB=CD patterns are first described by H.M. Gartley in his book "Profits in the Stock Market." (1935). The main advantages of trading harmonic patterns are that they allow traders to determine risk vs. reward ratios beforehand as they forecast key market turning points and profit targets for traders. In this article, I will describe how to trade 'ABC' chart patterns. The ABC pattern (can be a continuous or reversal pattern) and it is shaped like a lightning bolt.
THE RISK OF LOSS IN
INVESTING STOCKS, FUTURES, OPTIONS, FOREX OR COMMODITIES CAN BE SUBSTANTIAL.
YOU SHOULD THEREFORE CAREFULLY CONSIDER WHETHER SUCH INVESTMENTS
ARE SUITABLE FOR YOU IN LIGHT OF YOUR FINANCIAL CONDITION, YOUR
INVESTMENT EXPERIENCE AND OBJECTIVES, FINANCIAL RESOURCES AND
OTHER RELEVANT CIRCUMSTANCES. PAST PERFORMANCE IS
NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS, AND LOSSES ARE ALWAYS
POSSIBLE. THE STRATEGIES OR TRADE SETUPS MENTIONED
HEREIN SHOULD NOT BE CONSTRUED AS CONSERVATIVE STRATEGIES BUT
RATHER SPECULATIVE AND FOR SHORT-TERM TRADING PURPOSES ONLY.
THERE IS EQUAL OR GREATER POTENTIAL FOR LOSS WHILE USING THIS STRATEGY AND TRADE SETUPS.
