You could look for “obvious” patterns that help, for example the tweezer tops/bottoms when you’re locating double tops/bottoms. Or one, two or three candle reversals when looking for the ceiling/roof for the reversal. Obviously ensuring you are following best practices, of course, extensively covered in our education.
This is especially useful when looking at confusing patterns. What do I mean?
Many traders never fully know when they are getting a triangle, or a wedge unless they are getting a symmetrical triangle. Some traders will create rules such as it depends on options prices, open interest, or if the base is flat, it is a triangle and so on.
With this method, you can let price tell you. In this case, the bullish candlestick patterns would indicate a bullish pattern and bearish candlestick patterns would indicate bearish patterns. With respect to your trade plans of course!
