So you STILL doubt the legitimacy of advanced patterns, huh? In case you haven't been paying attention, GBPJPY has been dominated by bat patterns as of late and each one of them have yielded HUGE pips! We are talking THOUSANDS! Not twenty here or fifty there. Not even a hundred here and there. THOUSANDS! If you knew about them in advance and took the risk and traded each one, how hard would YOU be laughing as you went to your bank to withdraw your money! What's it worth to you to know when and where to trade them?
The beauty of trading patterns is that you have very defined entry and exit points. Combine that with a solid trading plan and you can see how powerful they can be. No arbitrary "feeling" about what to do. Just follow the chart. My trading system identifies which patterns have the highest probability of converting.
You are looking at the 4HR chart of GBPJPY with the Alt wave count and the subwaves breakdown. You can see that wave I was a 5-wave move. Wave II, though harder to count it can be seen as a 3-wave move. So the next move should be a wave III in this Alt wave count. Keep in mind that my previous wave count is STILL valid and CANNOT yet be discounted. So as prices move higher, the price action must be watched carefully in the case that the wave count is the correct one.
