    the pattern i look for is consistently rising or falling bars. when i have found them though, it is usually too late


  4. seriously, can anything be done about this. I leave millions of dollars on the table.
  5. 5 min

    1 hr



    Ascending & descending triangles

    time frame reversals ~ 10:30 am, and ~ 3 pm and ~ 3 am est being most consistent

    rule of 10
  6. I use all time frames, nothing shorter than 15 minutes though.

    The only chart patterns that I regularly use (90% of the time) are support/resistance, and ascending/descending triangles.
