In this article, we provide some explanation how to combine the channel with Harmonic Pattern to improve your trading performance with the objective goal. We have spotted that channels are merely a pair of support and resistance lines aligned in parallel. In general, there is various way of drawing channels for your trading. Sometimes, you can draw the channel by connecting several peaks and troughs in your chart. In addition, Elliott suggested that channelling technique could be useful devise to anticipate the future wave movement. For example, Elliott developed the three channelling techniques when Wave 2, 3 and 4 is completed respectively.
In Harmonic Pattern Indicator, we provide a regression channel to enhance the Harmonic Pattern Trading. A regression channel is a technical analysis tool that can capture the price actions between two given points in time. When the price nears the top or bottom of the channel, it indicates that the price may meet resistance or support. Regression channels are not meant to forecast exact highs or lows. However, they can simply notify a trader that the price has entered an potential area where the price has tended to reverse from in the past or that the price has entered an potential area where the price can continue with strong momentum. Regression channels also help with setting profit targets and stop target. For example, if the price bounces off the bottom of a regression channel, it could rally toward the top of the regression channel.
One thing you need to know is that a regression channel is mostly used as a supporting tool for other technical analysis. Nowdays, it is rare to see any trader relying entirely on a regression channel alone. For example, a regression channel can be used together with Harmonic Pattern.
