Say you're staring at a chart and you could swear you've seen this pattern before. But what's tingling
your brain? Maybe it's the price pattern. Has it really happened before? Undoubtedly. What did prices do
next when this pattern popped up before? Can't remember. Is there a low-cost way to find out?
Now there is a low-cost research tool for chart pattern users with access to a computer. With NAVA
Patterns, you select the formation you like (up to 30 bars' worth) and specify which characteristics you
want to use to identify it, and the software checks back through all the past data it has available to see if
that particular combination has occurred be- from those dates. You may edit data fore. If it did, it records
the subsequent modestly from within Patterns, so most action for the next one to 250 bars. It will data
manipulation (including making monitor price action and even forecast your own patterns) can be done
within what will happen next when it finds a the program. As for interface, Patterns matching pattern.
