Harmonic Pattern Success Rate and Testing Results Explained

The trouble I found lately is that Harmonic Patterns are abused by people selling harmonic pattern indicators, scanners and course materials, etc. It is that they are showing inflated success rate for each pattern. This was even case for many bloggers who are looking to get more website traffics into their post and forum, etc. When you are considering to become full time trader with harmonic pattern trading, you do need to avoid this kind of inflated success rate. This inflated success rate will destroy your trading performance from the day 1 of your trading because you are not tuned with the realistic sense of harmonic pattern trading.

Then how much do they inflate the success rate of harmonic pattern ? This is the typical example of the inflated harmonic pattern success rate distributed by retail seller of harmonic pattern service. Abusing 80% winning rate or 85% winning rate, etc. When you see success rate like this, you must question yourself what is the reward/Risk ratio of the testing condition. Otherwise, these numbers are meaningless. If the reward/risk ratio is 1/5, then you will be losing with this success rate. If the reward/risk ratio is 2/1, then this is the way too much inflated figure. They simply do this because they want to stimulate your interest to buy their products and service, etc.

This success rate is to say that one can become millionaire in few month time with 2000 dollar initial investment. Have you heard any one who earned that much money ?? Well no. We know that only scammers are saying that. When things look too good to be true, it is typically bad sign and you need to avoid it.

There is also second type of abuse or misrepresentation of success rate. That is developer himself is confused with success rate and pattern matching accuracy. Check this screenshot below. Accuracy of 100% is boldly printed on the screenshot. Accuracy of 100 ?? No one will generally state 100% dare in real world. If you are experienced, you will know that this is in fact, pattern matching accuracy. Pattern matching accuracy is the accuracy measurement between ideal pattern and actual pattern. This is not the success rate but calling this as accuracy can misrepresent the figure to trader. Never ever do this. Do not even take this as success rate. You will be doomed in your trading from day 1 because harmonic pattern does not work this way. This one might be due to ignorance mostly.
