ABCD Retracement 8.0
Metatrader Indicator (MT4/MT5)
The PZ ABCD Patterns indicator is a technical tool designed to help traders identify and trade AB=CD retracement patterns. AB=CD patterns are a 4-point price structure where the initial price segment is partially retraced and followed by an equidistant move from the completion of the pullback. They are considered to be the basic foundation for all harmonic patterns.
This indicator makes it easy to find harmonacci retracements and learn the basics of harmonacci patterns. It can be useful in identifying cheap and expensive zones in the market, and it allows for customizable AC and BD ratios (for purists). Additionally, it displays SL and TP levels based on CD fibo levels and implements visual/sound/push/mail alerts.
One unique feature of this indicator is that it waits for a donchian breakout in the right direction before signaling a trade. This helps to reduce the number of false signals that can occur when AB=CD patterns expand and repaint. The donchian breakout period is entered as an input by the user. Bullish retracements are displayed in blue, and bearish retracements are displayed in red.
Please note that AB=CD patterns can expand and the indicator must repaint to follow the expansion of the pattern. If the pattern repaints beyond the AC/BD/AB=CD ratios entered in the parameters, the pattern will disappear as it won't be valid any more. To trade these patterns, traders should rely on the donchian breakout signal provided by the indicator.
