Event patterns are price patterns caused by significant events that affect securities. Events such as earnings releases, Dutch auction tender offers, stock broker rating upgrades and downgrades, I call event patterns. This page serves as the gateway to examining those patterns and how to trade them.

Event patterns have failure rates that are often significantly higher than your average chart pattern. For example, an Eve & Eve double bottom chart pattern has a bull market break even failure rate of 13% (as of 10/17/2018). A good earning surprise event pattern has a 29% failure rate. Ouch!

Despite the high failure rates, traders should know how to recover from or take advantage of event patterns. That is what the below links discuss.
