Harmonic Pattern Scanner is the automated chart tool to detect various harmonic patterns used in Forex and Stock market trading. Before going on to Harmonic Pattern Scanner, you need to understand what is the Harmonic Pattern trading first. Harmonic Pattern trading is a way to trade using the strategy of price action and price pattern in Forex and Stock market. To use the Harmonic Pattern Trading, first you need to understand what is the Harmonic Pattern. Loosely speaking, Harmonic Pattern is the kind of chart pattern. Technically speaking, Harmonic patterns are another fractal wave patterns that frequently used by many financial traders. Harmonic patterns are typically made up from two or three triangles (i.e. three price swings or four price swings). The structures of the harmonic pattern are based on the Fibonacci ratios. Hence, some people consider Harmonic pattern as an advanced Fibonacci price patterns. Harmonic patterns include Butterfly, Gartley, Bat, Alternate Bat, AB=CD, Shark, Crab, Deep Crab, Cypher, 5-0 Patterns, 3 Drives Pattern and so on. Harmonic Pattern Trading is not bullet proof but if it is used wisely, then it can yield enough edge to pull the profits from the market. Harmonic Pattern scanner refers to the automated tool to scan Harmonic Pattern in your chart automatically. However, not all the harmonic pattern scanners are the same. Here is very simple explanation on type of pattern detection algorithm behind Harmonic Pattern Scanner. Not all the harmonic pattern detection algorithms are the same. In the past the main variations of Harmonic pattern detection algorithms can be categorized as following four types.
Type 1: Non lagging (fast signal) but repainting – option to enter from turning point. Indicator does not show the failed pattern in chart and last pattern can repaint.
Type 2: Lagging (slow signal) but non repainting – no option to enter at turning point (i.e. early signal). Indicator does not show the failed pattern but last pattern does not repaint.
Type 3: Detecting pattern at point C but repainting – option to enter at turning point. Indicator detect pattern too early and you have to wait quite bit of time until price move near the point D. In fact, price may not move near point D. You might just waste your time waiting for the pattern. Indicator does not show the failed pattern and last pattern can repaint.
Type 4: Non lagging (fast signal) and non repainting – option to enter from turning point. At the same time, the pattern is not repainting. This is hybrid of all above three system and can be considered as the most powerful harmonic pattern indicator.
