Bulkowski's Event Pattern Failure Rank

 

This is an alphabetical listing of event patterns that shows the performance rank of each event pattern by its failure rate. Ties are allowed. A rank of 1 means the event pattern has the smallest failure rate. N/A in the list below means the event pattern uses a different method to gauge performance than the other event patterns (usually the measure from the breakout to the swing high or swing low, not to the highest high or lowest low before a trend change). Thus, a performance comparison would be unfair and meaningless. For more information see the book Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns, Second Edition.
