Pattern recognition is very important when it comes to technical analysis in trading. Price charts display a multitude of data that can be difficult to interpret on your own without pattern recognition software, meaning that you may miss entry or exit points in a trade, or ignore the potential opportunity completely. This is where our chart pattern scanner on the Next Generation trading platform is useful.
An important part of technical analysis is to understand the price action of an asset in a rising or falling trend, as price movements usually signal a new trend. Based on these trading signals, traders can then decide whether to enter, exit or avoid a trade, depending on how promising the trade looks. Trading patterns can also help with where to place stop-loss orders and set profit targets.
