After more positive feedback received from the Gartley & Bat Pattern explanation, I have drawn the final illustration explaining my interpretation of the Cypher Pattern
For those who have not yet seen the explanation for the Gartley or Bat Pattern I have attach the link in the comment section below.

Above Is an illustration of a complete Cypher Pattern and the rules and ratios needed to trade this pattern.

First things first, grab your Fibonacci tool and draw from the X to A leg of the initial move or impulse leg.
The Fibonacci ratio's you are looking for are the 0.382%, 0.50% and the 0.618%, price MUST at least touch or spike through the 0.382% but not touch or exceed the 0.618%.
The price reversal zone is shown in the white box.

Now you have the B leg we are looking for the C leg which is an extension of the A to B move.
On this occasion grab your Fibonacci Extension tool and draw from the A to B and then back to A, you are looking for a minimum of the 1.272% extension.

On the C leg the price reversal zone is a little narrow on many occasion, price MUST hit the 1.272% but not exceed the 1.414%, which is once again shown in the illustration above.

Once you have the X A B and C legs you are looking for the final piece of the jigsaw which is the D leg completion and the area you are looking to buy.
There are a couple of different ways to get the D leg however they both end up at the same price, for me personally I use the Fibonacci retracement tool.
To get the D leg take your Fibonacci tool and draw from the X to C leg which will give you a 0.786%.
Once price falls to the 0.786% all criteria's are met, at which point you would buy in anticipation that price will rise.

TARGETS:
When looking to take targets on this pattern the first step is to once again use your Fibonacci tool.
Take your Fibonacci tool and draw from the C to D leg, you are looking for the 0.382% and 0.618%.
If this is the method you are looking to use for targets you would have your broker take off half of your position at the 0.382% and the other half at the 0.618%
To protect the profits you have accumulated it is advised to move stop loss to breakeven once the 0.382% target 1 has been attained, thus giving you a risk free trade and money in the bank.

STOP LOSS:
When looking to place your stops there are again many ways this can be done, but should always be placed below the X leg.
Your risk reward should be a minimum of 1:1 on every trade to the 0.382%, if this can not be achieved then I would not personally take the trade.

CURRENCY PAIR:
This pattern like any other and is more profitable with certain currency pairs, you should do your own back testing on this before trading the pattern.

I hope this is a more in-depth insight to advanced patterns in particular the Cypher Pattern .

@TomHall , C is an extension of the X to A move not the A to B move. can you check and confirm?
Obsy
@Obsy, that is, in the case of the cypher pattern
