The most important and useful type of chart is the candlestick chart, since it includes four different types of quotes: the opening, closing, highest and lowest of the session, where the rise or fall of prices will make the candle assume a green, blue or white color, in the case of a rise, and in the case of falls it is usually red or black. Charts comply with a property that is fundamental in financial markets: the principle of fractality.
Applied to technical analysis it implies that any type of pattern that is studied can be appreciated, with the same structure, in any temporality. Valdecantos, Candlestick interpretation: Candlesticks can be of different sizes and shapes depending on the market context. The combination of different types can give signals to the trader of the direction that the price action will take in the short term. For this reason, patterns are studied as: Candlestick Interpretation Manual, They can be of two types: bullish and bearish, and are characterized by their large size, which is likely to indicate the beginning of a new trend.
Its effectiveness increases as more candles of this type appear, and represents a period of temporary pause in the main trend and the beginning of a sideways movement. It is characterized by having the opening and closing price equal, resulting in a cross-shaped candlestick. It is characterized by having no upper wick, and the lower wick must be long.
Its effectiveness increases when it is preceded by a bullish engulfing candlestick that confirms the market's buying psychology. This pattern arises at the moment when an uptrend is preparing to turn bearish. Its confirmation occurs after the formation of a bearish engulfing candlestick. The dawn star is formed by a first bearish Japanese candlestick of good size, followed by the central one which must be the smallest and whose color is not important, and the third one corresponds to a bullish engulfing candlestick.
This pattern indicates the change of direction to the upside. The evening star is the opposite case in a bearish direction. The patterns most commonly used by traders are:. When it is discovered, the trader senses the beginning of a downtrend.
The same structure is seen, but the trend that should be about to form is bullish. Once detected, the beginning of a downtrend will be expected in the case of a double top, and an uptrend in the case of a double bottom. The distance of the next impulse can be projected with the distance that exists between the support and the resistance that forms the pattern.
The distance of the next upward or downward momentum can be projected with the distance between the support and resistance that forms the pattern. There are three types of triangles: ascending, descending and symmetrical. This constitutes a pause in the rapid trend that is occurring. In addition, it is formed by two parallel trend lines that normally slope opposite to the main trend.
Quantitative analysis is used as a complement to chart analysis. It tries to eliminate the uncertainty caused by chart analysis by using statistical calculations. Technical analysts use tools that provide them with valuable market information, divided into two groups: oscillators and indicators. The difference between indicators and oscillators lies in the fact that the former study everything related to the trend, while the study of the latter is on variables such as the strength and speed with which the price of a security fluctuates.
The RSI value fluctuates between 0 and depending on the strength of the market. If it takes a value above 70 it means that the market is reaching a ceiling and there may be an oversold point. On the contrary, if it reaches values below 30 it indicates that the price should be approaching a floor and there may be an oversold point. The RSI is also used in the detection of divergences, which occur when the oscillator and the price action behave in opposite ways.
Divergences can be found bullish and bearish, and are signals of a change in price direction. Afi Guides, a. This trend indicator moves together with the price, confirming the trend present at each moment. When the price movement cuts the moving average, it is an indication of a trend change.
These principles constitute the fundamental theoretical basis of technical analysis, from which techniques such as Elliott waves arise, through the systematization of key concepts such as trends, market fractality, supports and resistances. Ruiz, The wave theory was proposed by Ralph N. Elliott, and states that the market moves through impulses and reversals, collected as waves, which form graphic patterns that comply with the principle of market fractality.
Burguillo, The wave theory is based on the pillars of technical analysis founded by Dow, improving two of them. The first one states that the best way to predict market behavior is through the study of prices; however, Elliott develops this principle by providing a regular scheme for price behavior.
The second argues that history repeats itself, but is modified, adding that the repetition will never be exact, because although the price progression is governed by a standard model, it will never be identical due to variables such as volume. Elliott included his analytics within the conventional methodology of analysis, using some traditional tools such as confirmation of results.
The accompaniment of wave theory with quantitative analysis is key to good analytics, since the identification of divergences in the oscillator division is regularly related to the end of a wave movement. The essence of this theory consists in the formation of the main pattern, structured in five impulses and three retracements, forming a complete market cycle.
Roldan, a. To complement the analysis, it is necessary to know the Elliott degrees. These help to improve the graphic visibility of the patterns, since they divide the waves in size and temporality, due to the fractality characteristic. This nomenclature is difficult to represent, since in each degree there are several implicit temporalities, generating a component of ambiguity for the analyst. An important aspect to highlight is the indifference that exists in the Elliott degree that is identified, since the basic pattern will remain unalterable and will be appreciated in any seasonality.
For Espinosa a , the understanding of the main pattern of the wave theory, its structure is addressed, which is comprised of eight waves, namely:. It is divided into five small waves, where market conditions are uncertain and weak to make predictions.
It is divided into the three corrections a, b and c of the five impulsive waves that make up wave 1. This is divided into five waves. At this point the market begins to look more favorable to predict due to the full confirmation of the main pattern on the chart. Its main characteristic does not allow it to reach the price level of wave 1. It is broken down into three waves. This wave is also divided into five waves. At this point a change of trend is being defined, although there are exceptions where the subsequent cycle is created by continuing the main trend.
Therefore, this wave is the first impulse of the next trend, so it is divided into five waves. This is divided into three waves. The above waves can be classified into impulsive and corrective. Impulsive waves are those that generate a real advance of the price in favor of the trend, and concentrate most of the emotion of the market participants. These are carriers of five movements and in most cases adopt the same form of the basic pattern. Torres, A fundamental principle in wave theory is the alternation rule.
This is based on the fact that when analyzing a chart one should expect alternating movements in all wave formations. For example, if corrective wave two turns out to be simple, such as a zigzag or flat, it can be considered that there is a good probability that the following corrective wave the fourth wave will be complex, taking the form of complex triangles, double threes or triple threes, or any movement that denotes graphical complexity.
Molina Barrientos, Finally, a key concept for the solid mathematical foundation of various technical analysis tools is studied: the Fibonacci levels. Wave analysis is mathematically based on these levels. To arrive numerically at these levels we start from the Fibonacci sequence, which is a sequence where each number is the sum of the two numbers before it, being this 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34, Carpatos, Afi Guides, c.
Many Fibonacci techniques branch out from these levels, all with a specific objective in consequence of the results they illustrate. The Fibonacci tools most commonly used in this work are retracements and extensions. The retracements consist in the tracing of zones that constitute supports and resistances, and that allow to divide the trajectory of a movement in different levels, based on percentages extracted from ratios. This tool is widely used, regardless of the temporality either in the short term or long term , and the most used percentages are: The Fibonacci extension consists of the projection of an impulse, which is delimited by different Fibonacci levels, sharing the same essence of the retracements.
This tool is mainly used in the tracing of resistances, since it allows to know how far the impulse will reach, and, therefore, it will be possible to delimit a price range. The application of the wave theory leads to trend analysis through the representation of graphic patterns, in combination with Fibonacci retracements.
With its application, a probable future time horizon is determined, however, to increase its effectiveness in prediction, it must be combined with more advanced techniques such as harmonic patterns. Harmonic patterns are a tool based on the search for specific price patterns, accompanied by Fibonacci retracements, to determine points where the probability of a trend change in the financial market is high.
This type of analysis has its origin in Dow's theory, as it follows the principle that market cycles repeat themselves on a regular basis. Carney, a. One of the fundamentals of this analysis is that price waves are related to each other. Fibonacci levels and price patterns manifest this relationship and provide a solution to determine the point where the trend change will occur, and by correctly identifying where these points are located, a prediction is made with a high degree of effectiveness.
Therefore, this analytical technique, like the wave theory described above, has a consolidated mathematical foundation based on the Fibonacci sequence. This idea is supported by the principle of harmonicity, put forward by J. In his work, the author states that, in price action, the period of waves that are contiguous tends to have a numerical relationship. Harmonic analysis uses Fibonacci numbers to quantify that relationship, and determine where the moment of trend change will occur.
Carney, b. These bases are the ones that allow defining the difference between a harmonic pattern and a pattern of change and continuity, such as the shoulder-head-shoulder or the pennants. This inequality lies in the formation of the pattern, having on the one hand a western pattern, that its formation can be diffuse and sometimes imperceptible due to the subjectivity of the analyst, while harmonic patterns have a mathematical support through Fibonacci retracements.
According to Carney b , a thorough understanding of the graphical structures and numerical specificities is key to proper prediction. The fundamental harmonic patterns that should be studied are:. Its base is two segments of the same size, separated by a minor movement in the opposite direction. In harmonic patterns the appearances of Fibonacci ratios are usually at specific points.
The function of this pattern is to detect signals of a possible future impulse or pullback, which may lead to a new trend. For this five-point pattern to form, among other characteristics, it must have a very precise B point, this retracement being an exact This structure represents a strong contact of the price action on a support or resistance that can be very strong and difficult for the price to break through.
Its initial output was produced with a large number of different Fibonacci combinations in the points that make up the structure, to which authors such as Carney himself, have assigned more specific values, since specificity is a key element to predict with the harmonic patterns technique. Within this type of pattern there are several examples, which demonstrate the complexity it can reach and are an indicator of the progress being made in this predictive technique.
To exemplify these patterns it is first necessary to mention their two main aspects, which are the bullish and bearish structure of the base pattern. The same is true for the bearish what in the opposite nature. Variations of M and W patterns have also been created, as is the case of the alternative Bat pattern. This alternative version, like many others, arises from the experience where the standard Bat pattern has not generated an adequate forecast, resulting in ineffective operations.
This consecutive trading, where analysts correct the preset values to suit their trading, leads, after some trial and error, to the alternative Bat pattern: an M-type pattern that uses a total XA spread of 1. The BC projection uses a much higher level than the previous one, located at a minimum of 2. These patterns are not the only ones that can be used in harmonic analysis.
Traders are constantly creating variations and updating levels, seeking the maximum possible effectiveness in each prediction. However, the patterns discussed in this section are the basis for establishing any methodology.
In order to explain this procedure, facilitating its understanding and use, the author considers it necessary to organize it in steps that maintain a coherent consecutive order, with the purpose of avoiding failures in the study and possible predictive errors. To this end:. The prediction time horizon is set by the time horizon over which the operator wants to forecast, so a standard number of observations cannot be selected.
From this definition, the sample time horizon is determined. This must be longer than the previous one, because in order to effectively detect Elliott waves on the chart, there must be enough sessions to identify the cycle to which the time horizon corresponds, and if this is in the middle, then the previous one must also be detected. This generates sample time horizons that can be of one or two years to analyze short terms, or seven or eight years for forecasts with a longer predictive horizon.
This will allow us to have enough information about the historical movement of the price, which translates into a more effective forecast. The choice of these timeframes, as well as the operation in the following steps, is made using the Japanese candlesticks as a tool to analyze the chart, due to the amount of information they provide, and the visual facility they provide, allowing a better appreciation of the structures. In this step the temporality to be defined for each candle is selected, since the level of detail of each type of candle varies, and therefore its choice must be given according to the time horizons of the sample and the prediction that were previously selected.
In the specific case of this research, three temporalities will be used: daily, weekly and monthly, to demonstrate the effectiveness of the procedure in these different time periods, due to the use of the fractality principle that is present in the proposed tools. The trend analysis of this procedure will be reflected in the discovery of the main Elliott pattern. With this, it will be possible to record a historical price path and the current trend experienced by the price.
The analyst will be able, through the properties of the waves and the principles of Elliott's theory, to have a notion of the future direction that the pair will take, which allows the trader to also measure the length of the trend. This pattern is identified by observing the impulses and retracements of the price action, and the chart pattern in which they appear. Waves 2, 4 and C, which constitute retracements, need the Fibonacci retracement for validation, as movements that do not reach an important area of this tool cannot be identified in this way.
Once the trend has been studied according to Elliott's theory, we proceed to the graphic search for the existence of a harmonic pattern that may serve as a justification for the price movements interpreted in the chart during that period. In addition, the possible presence of a harmonic pattern in the final part of the price path is investigated, since these patterns tend to appear at the moment when a change in the direction of the price is imminent, so their detection is key to define the beginning of a momentum or a retracement.
If the price is in full momentum, these patterns will not be a relevant resource, however, when the price starts to oscillate, they can be identified, so we must look for M or W shapes in the price action, depending on whether the main trend is bullish or bearish, respectively. In order to accomplish this step, chartist tools of western analysis and the interpretation of Japanese candlesticks are used, which in many cases will be a confirmatory signal of the future price movement predicted in previous steps.
Also highlighted are the supports and resistances that will be used in their traditional form to measure the price graphically. These can be identified in two ways: the first is by graphically observing their primary function, being the ceiling or floor of the price on a repeated number of occasions, which validates the support or resistance in question; and the second is by means of Fibonacci tools, either retracement or extension, which gives levels where the price is likely to change course.
As for quantitative analysis, two traditional tools will be used: the RSI and moving averages. The RSI, as an oscillator, is used both in its function to detect possible overbought and oversold points, which are possible changes in the direction of the price, and in the identification of divergences in case they exist, being both uses confirmatory of the results of previous steps.
The moving averages, two of periods 20 and 9 are used, also help to confirm possible trend changes through their crossing. Once all the chart details have been analyzed, the supports and resistances have been plotted, and a logical conclusion has been reached about the future price movement, it is time to delimit the range in which the price action will move over the time horizon. For this purpose, the most probable supports and resistances are used, according to what is established by the Wave Theory and the Fibonacci tool, thus leaving a probable prediction range.
During this subheading, predictions in different timeframes will be addressed. Therefore, predictions will be made in daily, weekly and monthly timeframes, emphasizing mainly in the first one, since due to the fractality principle the analyses in these timeframes will share elements and conclusions in common.
This time frame is the one most commonly used by traders to predict the price of a currency pair, and most of the procedures are geared towards it. First, the time horizon is delimited, which will be the one corresponding to the forecast. This comprises the 30 days of July, so it is between July 1 and August 1, On the other hand, the analytical period to identify the main pattern of the Elliott waves will comprise between March 12, and June 26, , deepening more in the analysis in the last six months approximately to the temporary horizon in search of harmonic patterns, reason why a second moment of study more in depth will be from January 6 to June 26, The time frame to be used in this case will be daily Japanese candlesticks, in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of this procedure in this type of time horizon.
Next, we proceed to identify the basic pattern of the last cycle. This main Elliott pattern starts on May 18, Its beginning can be traced back to that day, because before it is the corrective movement of the previous cycle, which presents a triangular contraction structure. This pattern started when the price was at 1. Throughout this pattern the price progressed as follows: impulse wave 1 is displayed when the price reached 1.
The second wave was confirmed on June 22, when the price was close to 1. To validate this wave it is necessary to apply Fibonacci retracements.
