Gann SQ9 confirms Harmonic Bat pattern

Our project to verify Gann SQ9 methods as confirmations for Harmonic patterns continues ...
you can read about it here -> Gann trading - market turns timing - price projection

This time we played with calculating Gann SQ9 from harmonic Bat A and C points.
Gann 180degrees price level from A point and Gann 135degrees price level from C point are clustering.
Gann price levels calculated from Bat A point
Gann price levels calculated from Bat A point
Note the red vertical line calculated from Price x Time square.

Ichimoku methods with Harmonic Patterns trading

Watched webinar by Manesh Patel and read couple of articles about the Ichimoku methods. All this to validate practicality of this method, to combine with my harmonic patterns trading.

This resulted in newTHREAD about Ichimoku methods -> Ichimoku methods combined with Harmonic Trading

Links to the webinar and articles I found useful, as well as experience and examples shared by Ichimoku traders are included in the thread.

Time to look for some indicators that may support further Ichimoku vs Harmonic Trading investigations ;-)

RSI divergence confirmation for Butterfly patterns

Divergence is popular method to identify trend reversal places, so to sell near the top of a trend or buy near the bottom. Very useful method to confirm validity/proper location of a butterfly pattern.

Example (Forex USDCHF) of the harmonic butterfly pattern confirmed by the RSI divergence, but also by the 2 pivot levels (confluence of monthly and weekly pivot levels)

Emerging, Completed and Failed Gartley pattern

In the Interactive Trading Setups Disscussion we discussed today's Gartley patten that failed/got invalidated. After pattern failed and stop losses were taken out, price returned to the SL level. 

Since some of you asked for the video on the topic, here it comes - short one - about the failed harmonic Gartley pattern with 2 extra trading hints included.


How to trade failed harmonic Gartley pattern

Not sure if you benefit from it in your harmonic trading strategy, but when harmonic pattern fails - relatively quickly price returns to test the StopLoss price levels. If someone stayed in the losing position (did not accept the natural SL at X), this method (after price retests the SL levels) may allow to exit on Zero or small plus, or may be a good location to enter in oposite direction than indicated by the pattern. hmm... but what if price will never test the StopLoss levels :-) ... anyway, worth to consider the method.

Comments/opinions are welcome.

"Zen in the markets" - must read book pdf

For me it was the eye opener and learnt from it more than from any other technical analysis or system description type book.

I am sure everyone will find there something for himself/herself. For me the very important point I remember was that Market from any moment can go only 2 directions: UP or DOWN and author suggested what to do to be always on the right side on the market move. Priceless! At least was and is priceless for me!

How to find and draw the Butterfly pattern?

We look here at probably most powerful and profitable price pattern forming on the charts (of course together with the Gartley, 121 and Bat patterns). When you see its first 3 legs of the butterfly pattern completed and forming swing CD crossing the point B price level - GET READY. Now your work starts. See the following diagram presenting the moment (price location) where it's worth to observe the emerging butterfly pattern. Attempts trying to prognose potential butterfly pattern before price reaches presented point is in our opinion loss of time, efforts and money.

At TradingArsenal Forum we prepared a dedicated thread for this fantastic pattern ->

"Harmonic Elliott Wave" by Ian Copsey

If you are interested in harmonic trading and want to combine this method with the Elliott Wave Theory, check this out: Webinar: "Harmonic Elliott Wave" with Ian Copsey

It's interesting to see counting waves in 3s (3 subwaves in an impulse wave), not 5s.
A bit too theorectical I would say, .... but theoretical things may give good practical trading ideas.

and here is Ian's book:
