Detecting chart patterns

Chart patterns are of interest to traders who use technical analysis. NanoTrader automatically detects chart patterns. When a chart pattern is detected you can request to be notified by e-mail, sound or pop-up message.

The advantages of the chart patterns function in NanoTrader:

  • The chart patterns are ready-to-use.
  • The chart patterns are organised into categories (candlesticks, famous traders...).
  • The chart patterns are detected automatically.
  • An alarm (mail, pop-up, sound) notifies you when a pattern occurs.
  • The chart patterns can be used in screeners, trading signals and strategies.

This category of chart patterns is based on patterns identified by well-known traders and technical analysts.

This example shows a Hammer Blast chart pattern on the airplane manufacturer Boeing. The Hammer Blast pattern was designed by technical analyst Stefan Salomon. It contains a hammer candle. The pattern has a good track record.

The patterns in this category are based on candlesticks. A wide variety of candlestick patterns exist. They should be used not in isolation but together with indicators and other technical analysis tools.

This example shows a Bullish Engulfing pattern occuring during a downtrend on the stock 3M.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 66% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

Futures are complex instruments subject to unpredictable changes in price. They are financial instruments which offer the investor the possibility to use leverage. The use of leverage implies the risk of losing more than the total value of the account.

Investments in digital assets are considered highly speculative investments and are subject to high volatility and therefore may not be suitable for all investors. Each investor should consider carefully, and possibly with external advice, whether digital assets are suitable for them. Make sure you understand any digital asset before you trade it.

Back tested and real past performance do not guarantee future performance. Every investor should make sure, if possible with the help of an advisor, if the Investui service is suitable for his personal situation. All investments carry significant risk. There is no guarantee of profit.
