This situation appears quite frequently in the markets. I always take both patterns. The are four types of outcome here: 1) Bat loses and wins 2) Bat wins and don't trigger 3) Bat wins and wins 4) Bat loses and loses. The patterns are not anyhow interconnected to each other so the bat outcome doesn't influence the outcome. Outcomes #1 and #2 are the most common.

Comment: There is another outcome when no trades trigger.
Comment: Now bat pattern turned into gartley.
Trade active: gartley pattern was triggered.
Trade closed: target reached: gartley pattern took profit. Waiting for cypher pattern to trigger.
Comment: Cypher pattern didn't trigger.
How long do you leave the trade open? If clearly price has missed the entry point and has shot up well past what would have been the target, do you just leave the trade open? The reason I'm asking is because I imagine that leaving the trade open could possibly leave another pattern to develop which works against the original trade set up.
