Bulkowski's Alphabetical Event Pattern Rank

This is an alphabetical listing of event patterns that shows the performance rank of each event pattern by its average rise or decline and failure rate. Ties are allowed. A rank of 1 means the event pattern has the highest post breakout rise or decline or the smallest failure rate. N/A means the event pattern uses a different method to gauge performance than the other event 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.
