The following patterns were found manually, not using Patternz. Mr. Bulkowski has excluded any securities he owns from appearing in the list. However, he may add any of the securities listed to his portfolio at any time, just as you can.

In the table below, the red and green colors are based on the historical breakout direction for the associated chart pattern. If a high and tight flag appears, the start and end dates highlight the flagpole only and not the flag.

Thursday 7/28/22. Intraday Market Direction: Nasdaq

The Nasdaq climbed by 4.1% or 469.85 points. Since 02/05/1971 the Nasdaq made 3 similar moves on a percentage basis. After those moves, the next day's...
     Average gain was 2.6% on 2 occasions.
     Average loss was -1.6% on 1 occasions.
Expect the Nasdaq to close higher 66.7% of the time.
Weekly, since inception on 6/14/2011:
     The prediction of the Nasdaq closing higher has been right 242/427 or 56.7% of the time.
     The prediction of the Nasdaq closing lower has been right 64/135 or 47.4% of the time.

Since I post this the night before, check how the futures are trading before market open. Large moves can affect the opening direction.

I show a picture of the Nasdaq composite on the 5-minute scale.

The chart shows a pattern called a measured move up. That's the ABCD climb.

What I like about the measured move is that there's a good chance (57%) price returns to the corrective phase (BC) or below. So I expect the index to drop to B and perhaps lower tomorrow.

Wednesday 7/27/22. A Look At Indicators

Picture of the chart pattern indicator

This is a picture of the chart pattern indicator on the daily scale. The indicator is the line chart below a chart of the S&P 500 composite.

Two weeks ago, the indicator turned bullish and it has remained bullish since.

Today's (Tuesday) drop has pulled the indicator down, but it's still in the bullish range. You can see the dip near the bottom of the chart in the thin blue indicator line.

Picture of the percent down indicators

The red line is the percentage of stocks at least 20% below their 1-year high (plotted upside down). The blue line is the average percentage drop of stocks below their 1-year high (plotted upside down).

Shown as a red line on the above chart...
On Tuesday, 64% of stocks in my database are in bear market territory (down at least 20% from their 1-year high).
A week ago, it was 65%.
The fewest was 19% on 07/29/2021.
And the most was 79% on 06/17/2022.
Shown as a blue line on the above chart...
The 453 stocks in my database are down an average of 28% from their yearly high.
A week ago, the average was 28%.
The peak was 12% on 08/11/2021.
And the bottom was 33% on 06/16/2022.

Only the red line improved this week compared to a week ago. The blue line has remained steady.

Notice that the two bottoms, AB, where the low at B is above A. You can think of this pattern as a ugly double bottom. I think it's a sign of strength.

The two charts this week are bullish. Both charts show weakness today (the CPI chart) or within the last few days (this chart, red line shows a drop). So that suggests a retrace in an upward price trend. When the FED reports, I expect the markets to react, perhaps upward unless the FED raises rates a full point.

     Average gain was 0.7% on 624 occasions.
     Average loss was -0.6% on 508 occasions.
Expect the Dow to close higher 55.1% of the time.

Monday 7/25/22. Market Monday: The Week Ahead

My Prediction

Picture of the Nasdaq on the daily scale.

This chart is a study of failed chart patterns.

Let's start with triple bottom ABC. It confirms as a valid chart pattern when the index closes above red line D. But look at how far the index rises. It's not far enough to meet the measure rule target, which is the height of the triple bottom (from C to D added to D).

Double bottom EF confirms at G, but it has the same problem. The rise above G isn't what was expected. That knot to the right of G is a diamond top, by the way (I don't highlight it).

We see a three rising valleys at 123. It confirmed at 4, when the index closed above the top of the chart pattern. Will the index rise far enough to reach its target? I'm hoping the answer is yes, but we won't know until it gets there.

Thursday 7/21/22. Ethereum Cryptocurrency Review

The Nasdaq climbed by 1.6% or 184.5 points. Since 02/05/1971 the Nasdaq made 93 similar moves on a percentage basis. After those moves, the next day's...
     Average gain was 0.9% on 48 occasions.
     Average loss was -1.2% on 45 occasions.
Expect the Nasdaq to close higher 51.6% of the time.
Weekly, since inception on 6/14/2011:
     The prediction of the Nasdaq closing higher has been right 241/426 or 56.6% of the time.
     The prediction of the Nasdaq closing lower has been right 64/135 or 47.4% of the time.

Picture of Ethereum.

$ $ $

I show a picture of Ethereum on the daily scale.

At A, the cryptocurrency moved horizontally and formed a pattern that isn't an descending triangle (too much white space, I think), but it's close.

At C, the horizontal base of the triangle might pose a problem for the currency to move higher.

At B, the currency formed a solid base, a rectangle bottom. After the upward breakout from the rectangle, the coin skyrocketed. It has yet to reach red line C, but it'll be interesting to see if the coin turns down there (anywhere between A and C is a resistance area).

Wednesday 7/20/22. A Look At Indicators

Picture of the chart pattern indicator

This is a picture of the chart pattern indicator on the daily scale. The indicator is the line chart below a chart of the S&P 500 composite.

The big move upward on Tuesday (today) forced the indicator from neutral into a bullish stance. The chart shows this by the vertical green bar on the far right of the chart.

The new signal is good news for bulls. Today's move higher is reported to be a reaction to good earnings, so maybe this move has momentum with better earnings expected by other companies.

Picture of the percent down indicators

The red line is the percentage of stocks at least 20% below their 1-year high (plotted upside down). The blue line is the average percentage drop of stocks below their 1-year high (plotted upside down).

Shown as a red line on the above chart...
On Tuesday, 65% of stocks in my database are in bear market territory (down at least 20% from their 1-year high).
A week ago, it was 70%.
The fewest was 19% on 07/29/2021.
And the most was 79% on 06/17/2022.
Shown as a blue line on the above chart...
The 454 stocks in my database are down an average of 28% from their yearly high.
A week ago, the average was 30%.
The peak was 12% on 08/11/2021.
And the bottom was 33% on 06/16/2022.

Both the red and blue lines are higher than they were a week ago.

The chart of the red line shows a higher low. You can call it an ugly double bottom where the second bottom is above the first.

Both charts are bullish this week, which suggests the upward move has staying power. Yes, we could see a retrace, especially if a popular company falls short of earnings expectations. However, this might be a good time to bottom fish for securities you've wanted to own.

Monday 7/18/22. Market Monday: Have We Hit Bottom?

My Prediction

Picture of the Dow industrials on the daily scale.

I show the Dow industrials on the daily chart.

The two bottoms at AB remind me of an ugly double bottom. That's a twin-bottom pattern where the second bottom is well above the first bottom.

For indices, I don't set a percentage rise (which is usually 5%) between the two bottoms. That's because you don't see a larger percentage move on the indices (usually, but that's changed recently).

Anyway, the two bottoms are uneven.

The pattern won't become valid until the index closes above the red line at C. So we've a bit to go before we can call the turn from down to up.

If we see the index reach C, there's overhead resistance at D setup by the breakaway gap at D. That might slow the upward move.

It's something to be aware of in the coming days.

Thursday 7/14/22. Intraday Market Direction: Nasdaq

The Nasdaq dropped by -0.2% or -17.15 points. Since 02/05/1971 the Nasdaq made 532 similar moves on a percentage basis. After those moves, the next day's...
     Average gain was 0.7% on 278 occasions.
     Average loss was -0.8% on 254 occasions.
Expect the Nasdaq to close higher 52.3% of the time.
Weekly, since inception on 6/14/2011:
     The prediction of the Nasdaq closing higher has been right 240/425 or 56.5% of the time.
     The prediction of the Nasdaq closing lower has been right 64/135 or 47.4% of the time.

Since I post this the night before, check how the futures are trading before market open. Large moves can affect the opening direction.

$ $ $

I show a picture of the Nasdaq composite on the 5-minute scale.

The index broke through (heading down) a trendline (shown in red), at A. I show the depth of that plunge with the vertical green line.

After such plunges which pierce a trendline, the measure rule for trendlines suggests that if the security pierces the red trendline moving up, then you'll see a climb in height similar to the depth of the plunge. In other words, the height of the two green lines will be similar.

If that happens, it means the index should rise to B, the price of the top of the green line. However, that might not happen because the index has moved sideways for several hours today. That suggests overhead resistance which it will have to burn through before it makes the move. Perhaps we'll see the jump up at the market open on Thursday.

Wednesday 7/13/22. A Look At Indicators

Picture of the chart pattern indicator

This is a picture of the chart pattern indicator on the daily scale. The indicator is the line chart below a chart of the S&P 500 composite.

The indicator is in the neutral zone, but the last signal was bullish. You can see those changes by the white bars and the preceding green bar.

The longer-term trend, however, is downward. I show an accelerating drop with blue lines (segments). It appears that the index has bounced off the blue line and has turned down. Of course, anything can happen, but it suggests the index is still under pressure to drop.

The red line is the percentage of stocks at least 20% below their 1-year high (plotted upside down). The blue line is the average percentage drop of stocks below their 1-year high (plotted upside down).

Shown as a red line on the above chart...
On Tuesday, 70% of stocks in my database are in bear market territory (down at least 20% from their 1-year high).
A week ago, it was 71%.
The fewest was 17% on 07/13/2021.
And the most was 79% on 06/17/2022.
Shown as a blue line on the above chart...
The 454 stocks in my database are down an average of 30% from their yearly high.
A week ago, the average was 30%.
The peak was 12% on 08/11/2021.
And the bottom was 33% on 06/16/2022.

The landscape on this chart didn't change much over the past week. The red line is slightly more bearish but the blue line is unchanged (when compared to a week ago).

The red line bounced off the June low and climbed, but it might reverse and form the second bottom of a potential double bottom.

The prior chart is bullish but suggesting the index will drop. This chart is recovering but I expect a downturn. This is a time for caution if you're bullish. We might see the index slump for a week or so before recovering.

Monday 7/11/22. Market Monday: The Week Ahead

My Prediction

Picture of the Dow transports on the daily scale.

I show the Dow transports on the daily scale.

From the left, I highlight a head-and-shoulders bottom chart pattern. LS is the left shoulder and RS is the right one. The breakout happens at A with a strong push upward. The rise doesn't quite meet the target (which is the height from the low at the head to the red neckline directly above, added to the breakout price.

BC is a double top, confirmed when the index closes below line D. Price exceeded the target this time (pattern's height subtracted from the breakout price).

Now, we see a weird looking diamond bottom, but most diamonds are weird looking. In fact, the right side might see price continue higher which would probably invalidate this diamond (because of not enough trendline touches).

The breakout from a diamond is upward 74% of the time, so maybe we'll see price rise in the coming days.

Options Expiration

Thursday 7/7/22. Bitcoin Review. Revised!

The Nasdaq climbed by 0.3% or 39.61 points. Since 02/05/1971 the Nasdaq made 668 similar moves on a percentage basis. After those moves, the next day's...
     Average gain was 0.7% on 367 occasions.
     Average loss was -0.6% on 301 occasions.
Expect the Nasdaq to close higher 54.9% of the time.
Weekly, since inception on 6/14/2011:
     The prediction of the Nasdaq closing higher has been right 239/424 or 56.4% of the time.
     The prediction of the Nasdaq closing lower has been right 64/135 or 47.4% of the time.

Since I post this the night before, check how the futures are trading before market open. Large moves can affect the opening direction.

Picture of the bitcoin on the daily scale.

My software stopped reading the file at June 6, so I created an analysis using the wrong chart. This replaces my original post. Thanks to Varga Zoltan for spotting this. Note: You may have to clear your cache to get the new image to load. The new chart shows point A at the top and point C at the bottom of the pic.

I show a picture of bitcoin (BTC-USD) on the daily scale.

Price peaked at A and dropped to the descending triangle at B. If we assume that the chart pattern is the midway point of a measured move down chart pattern (or half staff pattern), then the drop measures about 48,000 to 28,000, or 20,000 points. Applying this move from the top of the triangle, about 31,000 - 20,000 gives a target of 11,000. Note that I ignored the spike at D because it's an outlier. I'd rather base the measure on the tight move of the triangle.

I'm eyeballing all of these numbers from this chart, so it's not an accurate guess. Also realize that this type of analysis (using measured moves) rarely works but it does give you an indication of what might happen. It suggests the coin has about another ~9,000 points to drop.

It's possible it can drop that far, but to me, it looks like it's found a bottom here and we'll see it return to the corrective phase of the measured move down. That's a rise back up to B, or about 28,000.

Wednesday 7/6/22. A Look At Indicators

Picture of the chart pattern indicator

This is a picture of the chart pattern indicator on the daily scale. The indicator is the line chart below a chart of the S&P 500 composite.

The indicator turned bearish today (Tuesday) after the markets put in mixed results. As the thin blue indicator line suggests, the CPI is weakening.

Notice that the index is still trending downward from the peak in January.

Picture of the percent down indicators

The red line is the percentage of stocks at least 20% below their 1-year high (plotted upside down). The blue line is the average percentage drop of stocks below their 1-year high (plotted upside down).

Shown as a red line on the above chart...
On Tuesday, 71% of stocks in my database are in bear market territory (down at least 20% from their 1-year high).
A week ago, it was 69%.
The fewest was 15% on 07/09/2021.
And the most was 79% on 06/17/2022.
Shown as a blue line on the above chart...
The 454 stocks in my database are down an average of 30% from their yearly high.
A week ago, the average was 29%.
The peak was 11% on 07/12/2021.
And the bottom was 33% on 06/16/2022.

Both lines this week are weaker than they were seven days ago. This chart also shows a downtrend in the red and blue lines, stretching back to the start of the chart on the far left.

The two charts this weak are bearish. The one above is more bullish than the CPI, I think. Why? Because the indicator moved up during the last two weeks, so it looks more like a retrace in a short-term uptrend.

I expect a resumption of the uptrend.
