3 Steps in Trading Harmonic Price Patterns

As you may have guessed, profiting off Harmonic Price Patterns is all about being able to spot those “perfect” patterns and buying or selling on their completion.

There are three basic steps in spotting Harmonic Price Patterns:

  • Step 1: Locate a potential Harmonic Price Pattern
  • Step 2: Measure the potential Harmonic Price Pattern
  • Step 3: Buy or sell on the completion of the Harmonic Price Pattern

By following these three basic steps, you can find high probability setups that will help you grab those oh-so-lovely pips.

Let’s see this process in action!

Step 1: Locate a potential Harmonic Price Pattern

Locate a potential Harmonic Price Pattern

Oh wow, that looks like a potential Harmonic Price Pattern! At this point in time, we’re not exactly sure what kind of pattern that is. It LOOKS like a three-drive, but it could be a Bat or a Crab…

Heck, it could even be a Moose! In any case, let’s label those reversal points.

Step 2: Measure the potential Harmonic Price Pattern

Using the Fibonacci tool, a pen, and a piece of paper, let’s list down our observations.

Measure the potential Harmonic Price Pattern

  1. Move BC is .618 retracement of move AB.
  2. Move CD is 1.272 extension of move BC.
  3. The length of AB is roughly equal to the length of CD.

This pattern qualifies for a bullish ABCD pattern, which is a strong buy signal.

Step 3: Buy or sell on the completion of the Harmonic Price Pattern

Buy or sell on the completion of the Harmonic Price Pattern

Once the pattern is complete, all you have to do is respond appropriately with a buy or sell order.

In this case, you should buy at point D, which is the 1.272 Fibonacci extension of move CB, and put your stop loss a couple of pips below your entry price.

Is it really that easy?

Not exactly.

The problem with harmonic price patterns is that they are so perfect that they are so difficult to spot, kind of like a diamond in the rough.

More than knowing the steps, you need to have hawk-like eyes to spot potential harmonic price patterns and a lot of patience to avoid jumping the gun and entering before the pattern is completed.

三步交易谐波形态

       你可能在想,能够获得巨大收益的谐波价格形态的运用关键在于,能够描绘出这些“完美”的形态,并在形态完成过后买入或卖出。

       描绘谐波价格形态的过程可细分为以下三步:

             ● 第一步:锁定潜在的谐波价格形态

             ● 第二步:测量潜在的谐波价格形态

             ● 第三步:在谐波价格形态完成后,买入或卖出

       如果按照上述三步走,它将帮助你获得高的胜算并实现高盈利。

       现在,让我们看看在实际运用中的操作过程吧。

第一步:锁定潜在的谐波价格形态

       哇,该图形看上去好像一个潜在的谐波价格形态!但是,此时我们并不是非常确定,它到底具体属于哪种形态。该形态看上去好像是三重推进,但又有可能是蝙蝠形态,或是螃蟹形态...

       更要命的是,它有可能是一个“四不像”形态。

第二部:测量潜在的谐波价格形态

       利用斐波那契工具、一支笔、一张纸,让我们记录下我们的观察数据。

         1. BC的运动目标为AB的61.8%斐波那契回撤水平;

         2. CD的运动目标为BC的127.2%斐波那契延伸位;

         3. AB的长度大体上和CD的长度一致。

       最后我们得出,该形态具备看涨ABCD形态的特征,它发出的是强劲买入信号。

第三步:在谐波形态完成后选择买入后卖出

       一旦该形态完成,你需要做的仅仅只是选择下买入定单或卖出定单。

       在本例中,你应该在D点买入,D点的价格水平为CB的127.2%的斐波那契延伸位,同时,你能够在你的入场位下方设置止损点。

       我们的操作就是这么简单吗?

       并非完全如此。

       使用谐波形态的问题在于,它们的走势并非如此完美,以至于它们难以被描绘出,走势不完美的谐波形态就好比一颗未经雕琢的钻石。

       相比以上三步来说,更重要的是,你需要有一双能够识别潜在谐波价格形态的慧眼、等待形态彻底走完之后入场的耐性。
