crab should at least touch 0,618 at B and should never touch 0,618 at C. Your painting has both mistakes. That's why there's more probabilitiy that prz will appear at 0,886XA as this pattern is a batpattern. To know more about bat and harmonic patterns check my ideas, especially weekly series of "Thoughts about bat pattern". It's free)))
Thanks. As I said I`m not that good at harmonics, this was printed by eSignal trading platform and they do have some specific adjustments which I found interesting but also problematic. They do not use highs and lows and Fib levels only, there are more parameters to adjust. I use harmonic patterns to confirm another strategy which I trade for very long time. eSignal also agrees on bat pattern which is to complete at ~1.4350. However, what matters to me is where the potential reversal zone is and if it fits to supply / demand zones ( which I look for ) - they are valid to me. 1.43140 - 1.4350 is minor demand and I`ll look for my short targets there in the first place since I`m short from 1.45415 . Crab or not - we will see. :)
It is simple :) I trade from 2006. and what I saw during the time is that strategies change as market changes. As a trader you have to know more than one to be profitable in the long run. Therefore I always look for something new and effective which I can combine. If one strategy does not work because the market changed - another one will. Price action trading, common chart patterns, Supply/Demand, "naked" and other stuff are something I do automatically. Harmonics are my next field of study.
We all trade what we see. But WHAT we see is a good question. What we see depend on what we know. I agree that strategies should be changed when the market changes. But this agreement is only connected to non-pattern based strategies. Pattern-based strateges can't change as human psycology doesn't change. Thousand years ago the only way to get rich by trading was to buy low and sell high. Today the picture is the same: the only way to get rich is to buy low and sell high).
