Harmonic multi-patterns. Fully automated to make identification easy.
Includes scanner and custom watch-list column

Your gartley indicator is AMAZING! it identified a gartley bull from a few days ago on a position I am currently in... If I had your indicator then, I definitely would have capitalized on that.

I cant wait to play the next wave flagged by your Gartley indicator!

Harmonic Multi-Patterns with Scanner

You like trading.
I like making it easier.

I am pleased to announce the new—and very much improved—harmonic multi-pattern indicator with scanner.


The phrase “harmonic trading” and all related pattern names are trademarked by Scott M. Carney and are used with his permission. This indicator is based on information from his book Harmonic Trading: Volume 1. To learn more about harmonic patterns directly from the author, visit his website—HarmonicTrader.com.


I strive to provide clean indicators that are easy to understand. The harmonic multi-pattern indicator does that by combining all detected patterns into one, efficient indicator. You will no longer have to add separate indicators for each pattern you wish to identify. This prevents the pattern overlap that often resulted in a cluttered, confusing chart.

Speaking of efficiency, the new algorithm completely eliminates the "too many iterations" error that some have encountered. This will be welcome news to those of you who like to watch the futures or FX market on the smaller intra-day charts.

Multi-Pattern Scan with Custom Watch-list Column

I have spent several weeks developing a proprietary algorithm and optimizing the script so that I am now able to offer a harmonic pattern scanner without encountering the dreaded "too complex" script error.

A scan script is included to easily find stocks that are forming a harmonic pattern. Additionally, the custom watch-list column can be used with the scanner to identify the detected pattern. One could also use more than one copy of the watch-list column to monitor for harmonic patterns across multiple time frames on their personal list of stocks.

Example of Bearish Bat Pattern

Things to notice in the video:

  • The pattern is automatically labeled
  • Once identified, the ideal pattern completion point is projected via the dashed lines
  • The potential reversal zone (PRZ) is highlighted in purple near the ideal completion point
  • After price has reached the PRZ, the three, user-configurable, target lines are drawn in purple

Harmonic Trading

Harmonic Trading utilizes the best strategies of Fibonacci and pattern recognition techniques to identify, execute, and manage trade opportunities. These techniques are extremely precise and comprise a system that requires specific conditions to be met before any trade is executed. The Harmonic Trading approach offers information regarding the potential state of future price action like no other technical methods.

The Potential Reversal Zone

This area is marked as a highly probable area for a reversal. This potential reversal zone (PRZ) is marked once point “C” is identified. By calculating the various Fibonacci aspects of a specific price structure, harmonic patterns can indicate a specific area to examine for potential turning points in price action.

In the video below, the PRZ is shaded blue and is seen once the butterfly pattern has been identified.

This is a zero-lag indicator that relies on price action alone. As such, points “C” and “D” will redraw until the associated swing-high or swing-low has fully formed.

This indicator will work on any chart time frame and with any instrument (stocks, futures, currency pairs, etc.).

This indicator does not include entry or exit signals. The trader is responsible for deciding when to enter and exit a position.
