Trading chart patterns

Master the charts and improve your trading

Chart Patterns is our third technical analysis guide, building on the Market Trends and Support and Resistance guides that came before it. The Chart Patterns Guide highlights various patterns that can be visually identified on price charts, and explains what they indicate about the balance between supply and demand in the market.

Specifically, the Chart Patterns Guide discusses the following:

  • Why do chart patterns occur?
  • The four types of pattern categories: continuation, reversal, bearish, bullish
  • Short-term patterns or long-term patterns: which are better? What's the difference?
  • How to confirm that a pattern is occurring
