The Penta-O is a 6-point retracement harmonacci pattern which usually precedes big market movements.
- Customizable pattern sizes
- Customizable colors and sizes
- Customizable breakout periods
- Customizable pattern ratios
- It implements visual/sound/push/mail alerts
Penta-O patterns can expand and repaint quite a bit. To make things easier this indicator implements a twist: it waits for a donchian breakout in the right direction before signaling the trade. The end result is an otherwise repainting indicator with a very reliable trading signal. The donchian breakout period is entered as an input.
- Bullish patterns are blue
- Bearish patterns are red
Kindly note that price patterns such as this can expand and the indicator must repaint to follow the expansion of the pattern. If the pattern repaints beyond the ratios entered in the parameters, the pattern will dissapear as it won't be valid any more. To trade these patterns, please resort to the donchian breakout signal.
Penta-O patterns do not happen very often: to find more, load the indicator many times in the chart with different amplitudes.
Important: This indicator has been renamed to comply with a trademark complaint from Mr. Scott M. Carney, who owns the following trademarks in the USA: Five-O Pattern.

- The last point of the pattern repaints as the pattern expands.
- You can have several indicators on the chart with different amplitudes.
- An alert is displayed when the pattern forms and also when the breakout takes place.
