harmonics - not so obvious like in the books

It's not always so obvious like in the books, note the complex structure of the XA swing.
... but again, the pattern location is the key.

Butterfly pattern - entry techniques

There are several entry techniques for the butterfly pattern trades -> Thread: Entry techniques for the butterfly pattern

Most agressive is to catch the exact top / low, but this requires experience and top skills. Great satisfaction when you catch the exact top / bottom, but can be painful if you miss several such entries in a row.

An alternative, less risky but offering poorer R:R, is the entry on the re-test of the D price level (88.6 - 100% retracement):

It's up to you to choose. When mastered, the Butterfly pattern beats the Gartley pattern!

4. Used on any timeframe

AMPmonitor TakeProfit levels

FYI: another change to the AMPmonitor platform ...

StopLoss and TakeProfit levels in AMPmonitor are only to demonstrate an idea about possibile levels and Reward:Risk. Traders use different approach to TP and SL and will use their levels anyway.

Since Gartley should be ideally first correction in new trend or for continuation "Gartley" should be any later correction within ongoing trend, the TakeProfits/SLs levels are to be corrected in AMPmonitor.

What AMPmonitor presents now is:

What we will change it to is:

In this specific case the pattern will become invalidated (as did not reach TP before reaching SL) instead of Running (successfully meeting TP level). It's more proper anyway.

If you have additional comments or ideas for AMPmonitor improvements feel free to post them here: AMPmonitor comments and improvements

Gartley pattern with complex internal structure

We often look on the charts for book -like Gartley patterns. Impulse, followed by nice ABC correction.
... but tradeable patterns can and will often take more complex forms.
Pattern location is very important to spot tradable patterns with complex structures. Location of pattern's X point is the key.

best results on Forex

These are the best Forex live account results I have ever seen. Just shows it is possible to get a lot when risk a lot.
First equity curve is "simple" 10000% how he is saying. He has many such in his Forex records beating career.
Forex Live account 10000% in 5 sessions
Forex Live account 10000% in 5 sessions

Second equity curve screenshot is his best record ever, although he tried several times, could not beat nor repeat this one again. Equity curve looks amazing. Doubt anyone can beat it. I assume market conditions had to be specific for these 5 days, and he had luck during each entry. Note however that it's difficult to be lucky 47 times in a row :)... maybe it's something more than luck :)

deep harmonic Gartley pattern

Someone was asking lately if B point in the Gartley pattern can only be located around 61.8 XA swing retracement. Generally speaking yes, and we at TradingArsenal team try to stick with this assumption and restriction.
There are of course scenarios where B is located lower and deeper and still pattern looks so harmonic, with perfect AB=CD that it's too tempting for some traders to skip the opportunity.

We just had such an Gartley example on Forex EURJPY pair. It's a continuation Gartley pattern with pretty perfect AB=CD, although point B is located at 88.6.

APAMI price movement indicator

TradingArsenal update email...

Dear User,

A very interesting insight was published on the forum recently.  Imagine an indicator that never repainted or lagged behind current price movement; instead it measures trending price action in real time. It is called the awesome price action movement indicator, or APAMI for short. Complete documentation, including a video overview of how it works, and a free download is available for you at this link:

Let us know what you like about it the most (or least) on the forum thread.

Kind regards,
