Harmonic Bat Pattern

The harmonic bat pattern was discovered by Scott Carney in 2001. Carney maintains it is one of the most accurate patterns, and requires a smaller stop loss than most other patterns.

This is one of the retracement patterns (along with the Gartley Pattern ) - and is a deep retest of Support (in the case of a bullish Bat ) or Resistance (for a bearish bat ) around the X level. The D level reversal will be at the .886 XA retracement in the PRZ.

If a Bat fails - it can often "morph" into a Crab Pattern where the D point exceeds the X point.

This pattern usually has an extended CD leg which is 1.27 Fibonacci extension of the AB - providing a favourable risk/reward.

Systematic tests by FxGroundworks, have shown the Bat pattern success rates to be 89%-95%.

Harmonic Bat Pattern Structure
Key features to look out for are:

•A .886 XA retracement to the D point is necessary. The D point cannot exceed the X point - if it does, then the pattern is invalid.
• Other Fibonacci levels should be closely grouped in tne PRZ
•An extended AB=CD where the CD leg is 1.27 of the AB leg. Although, an AB=CD where AB and CD are the same length is acceptable, but is a minimum for the pattern to be valid.
•Minimum 1.618 BC             extension to the PRZ. Its preferable if the BC             extension is 2.0. Could also be as much as 2.618.
•The B point retracement must be less than .618 to be a valid pattern. e.g. B could be 0.5 or . 382 retracement of the XA.

Fun Trading This One. Expect more volatilty towards the end of the month
It looks nice, but it has a good chance not to test 1.3150 that fast, it might break first 1.34, good German and EU ZEW might help the euro to do that, a fall back to 1.31 might occur next week if they will not agree on the debt ceiling. Until then only a break under 1.3250 could trigger the down move needed for this Harmonic Pattern.
I agree.... looked like it had a chance to dive 1.3153. Now looking bullish again
Thanks for taking a look

it is a very good idea, and also another perspective that deserves a chance:), and it still might have a chance :D
Yes indeed, probably later this month
first of all, this is not a bat pattern, but a gartley 222 buy. second of all, gartley buys are more meaningful at the bottom rather than the top of a move, obviously.
