I see way too much posted that suggests patterns and indicators are or will be less profitable as time goes on for any number of reasons. Personally I think that idea is riiculous for the simple reason that patterns and indicators reflect emotion and emotions never change. With that in mind, I'd like to ask which patterns or indicators etc have become less profitable. Just to be sure I'm not losing anyone, please consider such examples as moving averages, gaps, triangles, RSI. Or how about old favorites like Williams%R and OBV, or Chaikins CCI. Can anyone name one and support it with decent discussion? Given that patterns and indicators manifest the relationship of fear and greed, I submit that as long as humans participate in the markets, so will those emotions; and as such, patterns and indicators will continue to accurately reflect emotional relationships.
