Bulkowski on Chart Pattern Performance

 

Updated the table 8/24/20.

This is list of chart patterns showing the performance and failure rate rank of each chart pattern by its average rise in a bull market. A rank of 1 means the chart pattern had the best post breakout performance. A failure rank of 1 means it has the fewest failures. See the Glossary for definitions.

For more information see the book Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns.
