This page provides the useful information for Butterfly Pattern used in Forex and Stock market. Butterfly Pattern is the Harmonic Pattern used by technical analyst. We uses non repainting and non lagging chart pattern detection algorithm. In addition, the pattern detection algorithm is synchrozined between history and live trading. Hence, this study will show both failed and successful pattern to provide the unbiased results, which is close to the real performance. Typically, a repainting indicator will show the successful pattern only making it hard to check the real performance of the chart pattern. Hence, you can not check the real performance of the chart pattern using the repainting indicator. With our pattern detection algorithm, you can trade what you see. That can be done by only one button click to scan entire possible patterns across all symbols.
If you want to become a profitable trader, you should study the strategy in the scientific manner. It basically involves checking the repeatability or reproducibility. We provide this study to enhance your forex and stock trading with the chart patterns. The testing results provide some scientific value for the Fibonacci pattern, Harmonic Pattern, X3 Chart Pattern and Elliott Wave Pattern too.
We used the Optimum Chart to test this pattern. You can also use X3 Chart Pattern Scanner in MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 to get similar results. However, the user interface between MetaTrader version and Optimum Chart version is different. X3 Chart Pattern Scanner in MetaTrader can scan multiple timeframes of one symbol for one indicator attachment whereas the X3 Chart Pattern Scanner in Optimum Chart can scan all symbols + all timeframe for one indicator attachment. Anyway, both version use the same pattern detection algorithm. Hence, both versions are equally powerful.
The Butterfly Pattern in this study has the following Structure:
N: 3, C0: 1.270 to T0: 3
R0: R0: 1.618-2.240, R1: 0.382-0.886, R2: 0.786
Testing results were saved as the screenshots. The screenshots were taken when these ratios are met purely. No other indicator or confirmation were used to allow the fair comparison to other price patterns. For example, to compare the accuracy of Gartley Pattern to Butterfly Pattern, or to compare the accuracy of Harmonic pattern to Elliott Wave pattern, or to compare the accuracy of Harmonic pattern to X3 Chart pattern, etc. Remember the purpose of this work is to provide the most accurate price pattern to trade. Finding the most profitable chart pattern can be done only by comparing apple to apple meaning that each pattern should be compared under the same condition.
In practice, the trader never use the chart pattern alone to trade. Here are some points to watch out when you trade with the chart patterns.
Price movement around the Pattern Completion Zone (= Trading Zone) in the chart pattern
Risk management around the Trading Zone. Look for the trading entry, where at least, Reward greater than Risk x 2
Possibility for breakout trading around the trading zone (=use them as support and resistance)
Look for continuation pattern vs reversal pattern
We recommend these books to find out how to increase the success rate when you trade with these chart patterns.
