Harmonic Pattern Scanner is the automated tool to detect harmonic patterns. Here is very simple explanation on type of pattern detection algorithm behind Harmonic Pattern Scanner. Not all the harmonic pattern detection algorithms are the same. In the past the main variations of Harmonic pattern detection algorithms can be categorized as following four types.
Type 1: Non lagging (fast signal) but repainting – option to enter from turning point. Indicator does not show the failed pattern in chart and last pattern can repaint.
Type 2: Lagging (slow signal) but non repainting – no option to enter at turning point (i.e. early signal). Indicator does not show the failed pattern but last pattern does not repaint.
Type 3: Detecting pattern at point C but repainting – option to enter at turning point. Indicator detect pattern too early and you have to wait quite bit of time until price move near the point D. In fact, price may not move near point D. You might just waste your time waiting for the pattern. Indicator does not show the failed pattern and last pattern can repaint.
Type 4: Non lagging (fast signal) and non repainting – option to enter from turning point. At the same time, the pattern is not repainting. This is hybrid of all above three system and can be considered as the most powerful harmonic pattern indicator.
