Three Drives

The Three Drives pattern was originally outlined by Robert Prechter. It's not used often in trading, because it's rare to spot and far less common than other harmonic patterns. It consists of symmetrical price movements with identical Fibonacci projections in a 5-wave structure. The Three Drives pattern is defined by three distinct, consecutive and symmetrical drives to a top or bottom where each drive completes at 1.13, 1.27 or 1.618. Symmetry in both price and time is critical. It's important not to force the pattern on the chart. If it's not really there, the best decision would be not to trade it.

A reversal is likely to happen at the completion of the third drive. Conservative traders look for additional confirmation that price is reversing. Targets can be set at the discretion of the trader but normally extend beyond the last retracement. If the pattern fails, this could point to a strong continuation in the previously dominant direction. The Three Drives pattern can be either bullish or bearish.

There's a possible bearish three drive pattern before testing our weekly trend line. Looking forward to sell the rejection of our upper channel

Silver nearing a bottom in the short term?

SIlver is about to complete a three drives pattern . The completion of the pattern accompanied by a bullish divergence on RSI indicates a possible rebound in the coming few days to week. However, this is a framework for a trade, and thus wait for a setup over the short term to confirm your trade or a bullish candle.

Hey all! It's been a pretty quiet week so far but I've been patiently watching several pairs to see if any plans become more viable. EURCAD is one of these pairs and I was specifically waiting to for it to show signs of a reversal off of the 0.618 retracement. Now that it has done that, we can predict a potential bearish long-term ABCD pattern forming here - ...

Potential Bearish 3 Drives Pattern on EURUSD

Hey all! What we can see here is a potential three drives pattern forming on EURUSD. What tipped me off about this particular pair is the fact that the second drive featured a bullish move that hit the 1.272 retracement of the first drive almost perfectly (indicated by the orange arrow). So what we can expect to see is the third drive to hit the 1.272 retracement ...

We have completed a three drives pattern, now we should short looking for 61.8% retracement of the whole move up. We have this pattern accompanied by regular bear div in the last three peaks, and a longer term hidden bear div from ATH. So this should be an easy short. We still have a 2 points trendline to break, and for now we lack the necessary volume to do it, ...
