42  Small Patterns as of  12/02/2016

This article lists small chart patterns that I found daily in the stocks I follow. Not all small patterns appear because the list would typically be 800 entries (or more) long.

Instead, I search for the top five performing patterns and eleven others to keep the list short. For the list of patterns searched, click here.

Here is the list of stocks in which small patterns appeared and their start and end dates. If none appear in a table, then it's probably a bug in my code. Send me an email.
