Bulkowski's Chart Pattern Performance Rank

 

I've updated the performance of many of the below patterns. See time performance.

This is a listing of chart patterns that shows the performance rank of each chart pattern by its average rise or decline. A rank of 1 means the chart pattern had the best post breakout performance. N/A in the list below means the chart pattern uses a different method to gauge performance than the other chart patterns (usually the measure from the breakout to the swing high or swing low, not to the highest high or lowest low before a trend change). Thus, a performance comparison would be unfair and meaningless. For more information see the book Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns, Second Edition.
