The information presented here is based on results discussed in my book, Trading Classic Chart Patterns (pictured).

Which chart patterns will outperform and which ones will be duds? This scoring system is a method for answering that question, and it is based on research using thousands of chart patterns. Various technical and fundamental factors are scored to create a final number. The number is called a score. Values above 0 often result in performance that vastly exceeds the result from chart patterns with scores below 0. As with any system, this method does not work every time, but over time, it does help to select chart patterns that will perform better than the median performance.
