What is the Pattern Search Engine?

This ebook covers the following securities: stocks, ETFs, cryptocurrencies. The prices
of securities are constantly changing, but in some instances the changing prices
lead to the formation of 'shapes' that can be distinctly identified by key geometrical
elements. If a security confirms a pattern formation, investors can use that information
to determine what a security might do next assuming the pattern plays out.

A security pattern traces distinct movements of security prices that, once recognized,
helps investors make informed trading decisions. Patterns are identified by their key
geometrical elements, formed by changing security prices. For example, a Cup-and-Holder
pattern is identified when there are three points forming the cup (left edge, bottom of
the cup, and the right edge), with a security's price gradually falling then rising from left to
right. An additional move to the downside defines the handle of the cup (point 3 to 4), with
prices eventually breaking upwards to create the 'holder'. This pattern is a predictor of a
future upwards (bullish) movement of the security price.


Tickeron is bringing high-powered Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) technology to the
retail investment community that, in our opinion, rivals the technology and approach
used at major Wall Street firms. The Ph.D founders of Tickeron have spent several
years researching and building an Artificial Intelligence-based (A.I.-based) search
engine that allows active investors to perform thousands of hours of research and
pattern searches...in just minutes.

Here's how the A.I. works:
This e-book will walk you through real findings that the A.I. has produced. In doing
so, you will learn how the A.I. works, how it presents statistics and findings, and how
you can use these statistics and trade ideas to make informed investment decisions.

Chapter I

How it Works
Step 1. A.I. scans about 5000 securities and ETFs, looking to detect any one
of 37 pattern types.

Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) identifies patterns by their key geometrical elements, formed
by changing security prices when plotted on a chart. A Cup-and-Holder pattern (see
image below) is identified when there are three points forming t he cup (left edge, bottom
of the cup, and the right edge), with a security's price gradually falling then rising
from left to right. An additional move to the downside defines the handle of the cup
(point 3 to 4), with prices eventually breaking upwards to create the "holder."
    The Geometric Elements of a Cup-and-Holder Pattern
    Our Pattern Search Engine has the ability to identify 37 different pattern types, all
    of which are subjected to several million combinations of searches and backtests
    overnight, to be viewed in the next market day.

    Step 2: A.I. backtests all detected patterns.

    The A.I. presents statistics to show the investor what would have happened if he/she
    traded these patterns when they occurred in the past, which creates the 'probability
    of success' for each trade. The automated analysis performed daily by our A.I. saves
    investors the unfathomable amount of time necessary to identify these patterns and
    backtest them manually.
      6
      Step 3: A.I. presents trading ideas with backtest and statistical results.

      Finally, our A.I. provides investors with the "breakout price" for the security within the
      pattern, which tells the investors where a trade can be initiated. A.I. also provides
      the "target price" where the investor can potentially cash-in. To help investors keep
      track of emerging and confirmed patterns and all of the trading ideas generated, the
      A.I. presents all detected pattern and backtest statistics in the "Advacnced Search"
      feature on tickeron.com (see page 89).

        An Example of Security Pattern Detected by the Pattern
        Search Engine

        Cup-and-Handle Pattern

        We'll start with the Cup-and-Handle (sometimes called Cup-and-Holder) pattern we
        explained on the previous page. On the next page, you'll see a real world example
        of a Cup-and-Holder pattern our A.I. identified, and how it would appear on Tickeron.
        com. In this case, Tickeron's A.I. discovered the stock (ticker: AMRN) with the Cupand-
        Handle pattern. In this case the A.I. is 96% confident that the stock will reach its
        target price.

        Pattern Backtests Generated by A.I.

        How Pattern Backtest Statistics are Displayed on Tickeron.com
        The Tickeron.com user can view the overall statistics for all 37 patterns in a multitude of ways. The criteria below can be adjusted with just a few clicks and customized to the user's liking:
        • Pattern Type (choose from 37 options)
        • Emerging or Confirmed? (see Definitions on page 82 of this eBook)
        • Distance to Target Price (choose from a range of >5% to >15%)
        • Confidence Level (select a minimum confidence level, from 20+% to 80+%) • Security Type (Stock | ETF | Forex | Crypto)
        As the user adjusts each criteria, the statistics will change. Choosing lower distances to the target price and lower confidence levels will generally yield the most results. As you view the examples of patterns and their statistics on the following pages, note how the criteria such as "distance to target" and "confidence level" are adjusted, and how that affects the results.

        General Description
        The Broadening Bottom pattern is formed when a security price progressively makes higher highs (2, 4) and lower lows (1, 3, 5) following two widening trend lines. The price is expected to move up or down past the pattern depending on which line is broken first. What distinguishes a Broadening Bottom from a Broadening Top is that the price of the security is declining prior to entering the pattern formation. This type of formation happens when volatility is high or increasing, and when a security's price is moving with high volatility but little or no direction. It potentially indicates growing investor nervousness and indecisiveness.
        Trading Idea
        Once the price breaks out from the top pattern boundary, day traders and swing trader] should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at the upward breakout price/entry point. To identify an exit, compute the target price by adding the pattern height (H on the chart) to the breakout price. The pattern height is difference between the pattern's highest high and its lowest low. To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

          General Description
          The Broadening Wedge Ascending pattern forms when a security price progressively makes higher highs (1, 3) and higher lows (2, 4), following two widening trend lines. This pattern may form when large investors spread their buying over a period of time. The theory goes that after initial buying occurs, other market participants react to the rising price and jump on the bandwagon to participate. Then value investors begin to sell, believing the price has risen too much, which spurs the original large investor to resume buying again. Once these activities stop, the price may break out in either direction.
            Trading Idea
            Once price breaks out from the top pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at the upward breakout price/entry point. To identify an exit, compute the target price for this formation by adding the height of the pattern to the upward breakout level. Pattern height is the difference between the breakout price (the highest high within the pattern) and the highest low.

            General Description
            The Broadening Wedge Descending pattern forms when a security price makes lower lows (1, 3, 5) and lower highs (2, 4), forming a downtrend. This pattern may form when large investors spread out their selling over a period of time.

            When the initial selling occurs, other market participants react to the falling price and jump on the bandwagon to participate. Then the value investors begin to buy, believing the price has fallen too much, which spurs the original large investor to resume buying again as well.
            Trading Idea

            Once price breaks out from the lowest high in the pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at the upward breakout price level. The upward Breakout is the lower of the two highs, and the Target price is the higher high (it is also the top of the pattern).

            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

            General Description
            The Cup-and-Holder (sometimes called Cup-and-Handle) pattern is formed when a security price initially declines and then rises to form a "U"-like rounded shape (1, 2, 3, also known as the Cup). Once it forms the right lip, it is characterized by short, relatively straight price decline (from 3 to 4) forming the handle.

            The declining handle potentially forms due to mounting selling pressure created when the security tests its high at the right cup lip. After the sellers give up, the security has the potential to breakout to the upside.
            Trading Idea
            Once the price breaks out from the top pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at the upward breakout price/entry point. To identify an exit, compute the target price for the Cup-and-Holder pattern by adding the pattern's height (the difference between the highest high and the bottom of the cup) to the price at the right cup lip. The confirmation move is when the security moves past the breakout price above the right cup lip.

            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

            General Description
            The Rising Flag (or Bullish Flag) pattern looks like a flag with a mast. It forms when rising prices experience a consolidation period, and the price moves within a narrow range defined by the parallel lines through points 2-4 and 3-5. After the consolidation, the previous trend resumes.

            This type of formation happens when a security's price is expected to move in a rising trend line, but some volatility along the way creates a consolidation period.
            Trading Idea
            Once the price breaks out from the top pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying the security or a call option at the upward breakout price/entry point. To identify an exit, compute the target price by adding the initial rise between points 1 and 2 to the breakout price.

            The breakout price level for the Bullish Flag pattern is the last point touching the top line (point 4).
            When trading, wait for the confirmation move, which is when the price rises above the Breakout level.

            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

            General Description
            The Head-and-Shoulders Bottom pattern is formed when a security price creates a center trough (the inverted head, labeled 3) and the left and right inverted shoulders (1, 5). As you can see, this pattern is vertically symmetrical to the usual Head-andShoulders pattern and is formed when a security is testing new lows on a downtrend. After reaching the lowest low (the Head, 3) the next low is shallower and the trend reverses course to the upside.

            This type of formation happens when investors create a minimum support level for a security price, and ultimately trading consolidates into an UP trend.
            Trading Idea
            Once the security price breaks out from the top pattern boundary (the neckline), day traders and swing traders should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying the security or a call option at the low once the pattern is confirmed, which is known as the breakout point. The pattern is confirmed when the price breaks above the Neckline (2,4). To identify an exit, compute the target price level by adding pattern height (the distance between the head (3) and the Neckline (2, 4)) to the neckline price level.

            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

            The Rising Pennant (or Bullish Pennant) pattern looks like a pennant with a mast. It forms when rising prices experience a consolidation period, and the price moves within a narrow range defined by the converging lines through points 2-4 and 3-5. After the consolidation, the previous trend resumes.

            This type of formation happens when anticipation of an uptrend is high, and when a security's price consolidates within a range. It indicates growing investor interest in a potentially explosive uptrend.
            Trading Idea
            Once the price breaks out from the top pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at the breakout. The breakout price level for the Rising Pennant pattern is the last point touching the top line (4). To identify an exit, compute the target price by adding the initial rise between points 1 and 2 to the breakout price. When trading, wait for the confirmation move, which is when the price rises above the breakout level.

            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

            General Description
            The Rectangle Bottom pattern forms when a security price is stuck in a range bound motion. Two horizontal lines (1, 3, 5) and (2, 4) form the pattern as the security bounces up and down between support and resistance levels. Depending on who gives up first - buyers or sellers - the price can breakout in either direction.

            This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets. Usually the pattern performs better when there is a strong downtrend leading into the formation.


            Trading Idea
            If the price breaks out from the top pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at the breakout price level. To identify an exit, compute the target price level by adding the pattern height (which is the distance between the horizontal lines) to the breakout price.

            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

            General Description
            The Three Rising Valleys pattern forms when three minor Lows (1, 3, 5) arranged
            along an upward sloping trend line. It often appears at the end of a declining trend
            – an indication that buyers are overtaking sellers, which ultimately pushes the price
            higher.
            This type of formation happens when investors shift into buying mode following a
            consolidation period.
            Trading Idea
            Once the price breaks out from the top pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders
            should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at the
            breakout price level. To identify an exit, compute the target price level by adding the
            pattern's height (highest price minus the lowest price within the pattern) to the breakout
            level (the highest high). When trading, wait for the confirmation move, which is
            when the price rises above the breakout level.

            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider
            placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

            General Description
            The Ascending Triangle pattern forms when a security price tests a resistance level
            and creates a horizontal top line (1, 3, 5), with an upward-sloping bottom line (2, 4)
            formed by a rising support level. The breakout can either be up or down, and it will
            determine whether the target price is higher or lower.

            This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets, since the contraction
            (narrowing) of the market range signals that neither bulls nor bears are in
            control. When a security price consolidates around a certain level, it may indicate
            growing investor confidence for a significant uptrend.
            Trading Idea
            Once price breaks outside of the triangle, day traders and swing traders should
            trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security at the upward breakout level. To
            identify an exit, compute the target price by adding the pattern height to the breakout
            point. For upward breakouts, the level is the top horizontal line (1, 3, 5). The pattern
            height can be calculated by taking the difference between the resistance level set by
            the horizontal line, and the lowest low.

            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider
            placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

            General Description
            The Descending Triangle pattern is formed when a security price establishes a support
            level (1, 3, 5) and bounces off that level to a declining resistance level, creating
            a down-sloping top line (2, 4). The breakout can either be up or down, depending if
            the resistance or highest support level is broken first.

            This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets, since the contraction
            (narrowing) of the market range signals that neither bulls nor bears are in
            control.
              Trading Idea
              Once the price breaks out from the top pattern boundary, day traders and swing
              traders should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at
              the breakout price level. To identify an exit, compute the target price by adding the
              pattern height from breakout point. For upward breakouts the level is the highest
              high within the triangle (2). Pattern height is the difference between the level of the
              bottom horizontal line and the highest high.

              To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider
              placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

                General Description
                The Symmetrical Triangle Bottom pattern forms when a security price fails to retest
                a high or a low and ultimately forms two narrowing trend lines. As the support and
                resistance levels consolidate, it forms a triangle (1-5). Symmetrical Triangles are
                characterized by the upper line sloping downward and lower line sloping upward.
                The price movement inside the triangle should fill the shape with some uniformity,
                without leaving large blank areas.

                This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets, since the contraction
                (narrowing) of the market range signals that neither bulls nor bears are in control.
                However, there is a distinct possibility that market participants will either pour in
                or sell out, and the price can move up or down with big volumes (leading up to the
                breakout).
                  Trading Idea
                  If the price breaks out from the top pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders
                  should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at
                  the breakout price level. To identify an exit, compute the target price by adding the
                  pattern height from the breakout point. The height of the pattern is the difference
                  between the highest high and lowest low.

                  To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider
                  placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

                  move up or down past the triangle depending on which line is broken first. The price
                  movement inside the triangle should fill the shape with some uniformity, without leaving

                      General Description
                      The Triple Bottom pattern appears when there are three distinct low points (1, 3, 5)
                      that represent a consistent support level. The security tests the support level over
                      time but eventually breaks resistance and makes a strong move to the upside.

                      This type of formation happens when sellers can not break the support price, and
                      market participants eventually pour in.

                        traders should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at
                        the breakout price level. To identify an exit, compute the target price by adding the
                        pattern's height (highest price minus the bottom price support level) to the breakout
                        level - the highest high. When trading, wait for the confirmation move, which is when
                        the price rises above the breakout level.

                        To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider
                        placing a stop order to sell at or below the breakout price.

                          General Description
                          The Falling Wedge pattern forms when a security's price appears to be spiraling downward,
                          and two down-sloping lines are created with the price hitting lower lows (1, 3, 5)
                          and lower highs (2, 4). The two pattern lines intersect to form a narrow triangle. Unlike
                          Descending Triangle patterns, however, both lines need to have a distinct downward
                          slope, with the top line having a steeper decline.

                          This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets, since the contraction
                          (narrowing) of the market range signals that neither bulls nor bears are in control.
                          However, there is a distinct possibility that market participants will either pour in or sell
                          out, and the price can move up or down with big volumes (leading up to the breakout).
                          Trading Idea
                          If the price breaks out as shown on the chart, day traders and swing traders should
                          trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a security or a call option at the breakout
                          point. To identify an exit, set the target price as the top of the formation (the highest
                          high). The confirmation move is when the price breaks out of the last high touching
                          the top line.

                          To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider

                            and higher lows (2,4). The two pattern lines intersect to form an upward sloping triangle.
                            Unlike ascending triangle patterns, however, both lines need to have a distinct

                                The Broadening Bottom pattern forms when a security price makes higher highs (2,
                                4) and lower lows (1, 3, 5) following two widening trend lines. The price is expected
                                to move up or down past the pattern depending on which line is broken first. What
                                distinguishes a Broadening Bottom from a Broadening Top is that the price of the
                                security is declining prior to entering the pattern formation.

                                This type of formation happens when volatility is high or increasing, and when a
                                security's price is moving with high volatility but little or no direction. It potentially
                                indicates growing investor nervousness and indecisiveness.

                                        The Broadening Wedge Ascending pattern forms when a security price progressively
                                        makes higher highs (1, 3, 5) and higher lows (2, 4), following two widening trend
                                        lines. This pattern may form when large investors spread their buying over a period
                                        of time.

                                        When initial buying occurs, other market participants react to rising price and jump
                                        on the bandwagon to participate. Then value investors begin to sell, believing the
                                        price has risen too much, which spurs the original large investor to resume buying
                                        again. Once these activities stop, the price may break out in either direction.

                                            The Broadening Wedge Descending pattern forms when a security price makes
                                            lower lows (1, 3) and lower highs (2, 4), forming two downward sloping lines that
                                            expand over time (kind of like a pointed down megaphone shape). This pattern may
                                            form when large investors spread out their selling over a period of time, and the

                                            The Inverted Cup-and-Holder (sometimes called Inverted Cup-and-Handle) pattern
                                            forms when prices rise then decline to create an upside-down "U"-like shape (1, 2, 3,
                                            also known as the Cup), followed by a shorter relatively straight price increase that
                                            bounces from the right lip (from 3 to 4, creating the Handle).

                                            The rising handle forms as a result of mounting buying pressure created when the
                                            security retests a low at the right lip of the cup. Once the buyers give up, sellers take
                                            over and the security has the potential to decline rapidly.

                                            by subtracting the pattern's height (the difference between the highest price and
                                            the support levels) from the price at the right cup lip. The confirmation move is the
                                            breakout of the price below the right cup lip.

                                            The Dead Cat Bounce pattern appears when a security's price falls quickly but has a
                                            temporary "v-shaped" recovery before resuming its downward trend. The temporary
                                            bounce (from point 2 to point 3) may be explained by shorters covering their positions,
                                            or buying by investors who think the price has already reached a low point.

                                            It is important to wait for the confirmation move, which is when the price breaks below
                                            the low where the dead cat bounce occurred (point 2).

                                            traders and swing traders should trade with a DOWN trend. Consider selling the security
                                            short or buying a put option at the downward breakout price level. To identify
                                            an exit, compute the pattern's height by measuring the initial fall (from points 1 to 2).
                                            Then calculate the target price by subtracting the pattern height from the breakout
                                            price level. When trading, wait for the confirmation move - prices falling below the
                                            breakout level.

                                            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider
                                            placing a stop order to buy back a short position or sell a put option at or above the
                                            breakout price.

                                            The Falling Flag (or Bearish Flag) pattern looks like a flag with the mast turned
                                            upside down (the mast points up). The pattern forms when falling prices experience
                                            a consolidation period, and the price moves within a narrow range defined by the
                                            parallel lines through points 2-4 and 3-5. After the consolidation, the previous trend
                                            resumes.

                                            This type of formation happens when anticipation of a downtrend is high, and when a
                                            security's price consolidates during a broader decline. It may indicate growing investor
                                            concern of an impending downtrend.

                                            If the price breaks out from the bottom pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders
                                            should trade with a DOWN trend. Consider selling the security short or buying
                                            a put option at the downward breakout price level. The breakout price level for the
                                            Falling Flag pattern is the highest low reached within the pattern (4). To identify an
                                            exit, calculate the target price by subtracting the initial fall between points 1 and 2
                                            from the breakout price. When trading, wait for the confirmation move, which is when
                                            the price falls below the breakout level.

                                            The Head-and-Shoulders Top pattern forms when a security is testing new highs on
                                            an uptrend, but fails to retest its highest high and break upward. Mounting selling
                                            pressure takes over each time a security approaches its high. The pattern forms with
                                            a center peak (the Head, labeled 3) and left and right Shoulders (1, 5). Eventually
                                            the security stops testing highs and reverses trend into a decline.
                                            Trading Idea
                                            Consider selling the security short before it declines or buying a put option to benefit
                                            from the price decline. To improve success chances, wait for a confirmation move:
                                            allow the price to break below the Neckline level (2, 4), which is calculated as the
                                            average of the two lows between the Head and the Shoulders. To estimate an exit,
                                            calculate the pattern height by taking the price difference between the Head (3) and
                                            the Neckline price (4), and subtract that from the Neckline price level/breakout price
                                            level.

                                            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider

                                            breakout price.

                                            The Falling Pennant (or Bearish Pennant) pattern looks like a pennant turned upside
                                            down (the mast points up). It forms when falling prices experience a consolidation
                                            period, and the price moves within a narrow range defined by the converging lines
                                            through points 2-4 and 3-5. After the consolidation, the previous trend resumes.

                                            Pennant pattern is the last point touching the bottom pattern line (point 4). To identify an

                                            (1, 3, 5) and (2, 4) form the pattern. Depending on who gives up first - buyers or
                                            sellers - the price can Breakout in either direction.

                                            This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets. Usually the pattern

                                            along a downward-sloping trend line.

                                            This pattern often emerges at the end of a rising trend, when a security slowly rolls
                                            over. It potentially indicates sellers moving-in to replace buyers, which pushes the

                                            The Ascending Triangle pattern has a horizontal top line (1, 3, 5) representing a resistance
                                            level, and an upward-sloping bottom line (2, 4). The Breakout can either be
                                            up or down, and the direction of the Breakout will determine whether the Target Price
                                            is higher or lower.

                                            This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets, since the contraction
                                            (narrowing) of the market range signals that neither bulls nor bears are in
                                            control. When a security's price consolidates around highs it might indicate that a
                                            significant downtrend is ahead.

                                            breakouts the breakout level is the price at the lowest low within the triangle (2). The
                                            pattern height is the difference between the level of the top horizontal line and the
                                            lowest low.

                                            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider
                                            placing a stop order to buy back a short position or sell a put option at or above the
                                            breakout price.

                                            The Descending Triangle pattern has a horizontal bottom (1, 3, 5) which represents
                                            the support level, and a down-sloping top line (2, 4). The breakout can be either up
                                            or down and the direction of the breakout determines which corresponding price
                                            level is the target.

                                            This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets, since the contraction
                                            (narrowing) of the market range signals that neither bulls nor bears are in
                                            control. When a security's price consolidates in a somewhat volatile fashion, it may
                                            indicate growing investor concern that the price is set to break out.
                                            Trading Idea
                                            If the price breaks out from the bottom pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders
                                            should trade with the DOWN trend. Consider selling the security short or buying
                                            a put option at the downward breakout price level. To identify an exit, compute the
                                            target price, by subtracting the pattern height from breakout point. For downward
                                            breakouts the breakout level is the bottom horizontal line (1, 3, 5). Pattern height is
                                            the difference between the level of the bottom horizontal line and the highest high.

                                            To limit potential loss when price suddenly goes in the wrong direction, consider
                                            placing a stop order to buy back a short position or sell a put option at or above the
                                            breakout price.

                                            The Symmetrical Triangle Bottom pattern forms when a security's price fails to retest
                                            a high or a low and ultimately forms two narrowing trend lines. Points 1- 5 form the
                                            triangle patterns. The price is expected to move up or down past the triangle depending
                                            on which line is broken first.

                                            This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets, since the contraction

                                            However, there is a distinct possibility that market participants will either pour in
                                            or sell out, and the price can move up or down with big volumes (leading up to the
                                            breakout).

                                            pattern height by taking the difference between the highest high and the lowest low.
                                            Then, calculate the target price by subtracting the pattern height from the breakout
                                            price, which is the lowest low.

                                            breakout). The price movement inside the triangle should fill the shape with some
                                            uniformity, without leaving large blank areas.

                                            General Description
                                            The Triple Tops pattern appears when there are three distinct minor Highs (1, 3, 5) at
                                            about the same price level. The security is testing the upper resistance level (horizontal
                                            line formed by 1-3-5), but the price ultimately declines as buyers give up.

                                            This type of formation potentially happens when investors can not break the resistance
                                            price. There is a distinct possibility that market participants will sell out, and
                                            the price can move down with big volumes (leading up to the breakout).

                                            If the price breaks out from the bottom pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders
                                            should trade with the DOWN trend. Consider selling the security short or buying a put
                                            option at a downward breakout price level. To identify an exit, calculate the target price
                                            by subtracting the pattern height from the breakout level. The pattern's height is the
                                            highest high minus the lowest low, or the bottom resistance within the pattern. When
                                            trading, wait for the confirmation move, which is when the price falls below the breakout
                                            level.

                                            The Falling Wedge pattern forms when prices appear to spiral downward, with lower
                                            lows (1, 3, 5) and lower highs (2, 4) creating two down-sloping trend lines that intersect
                                            to form a triangle. Unlike Descending Triangle patterns, however, both lines
                                            need to have a distinct downward slope, with the top line having a steeper decline.

                                            This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets, since the contraction
                                            (narrowing) of the market range signals that neither bulls nor bears are in control.

                                            by subtracting the pattern height from the breakout level. The pattern height is the difference
                                            between the highest high and the lowest low within the pattern, and the breakout
                                            level is the lowest point within the triangle.

                                            The Rising Wedge pattern forms when prices appear to spiral upward, with higher
                                            highs (1, 3, 5) and higher lows (2,4) creating two up-sloping trend lines that intersect
                                            to form a triangle. Unlike ascending triangle patterns, both lines need to have a distinct
                                            upward slope, with the bottom line having a steeper slope.

                                            Rising Wedge formation, take the highest high as the downward Breakout point and
                                            subtract the formation height to it. Formation height is the difference between the
                                            highest high and lowest low within the pattern.

                                            Emerging Pattern
                                            Each pattern type is unique and includes multiple geometry-based conditions, all of
                                            which are tied to 'shapes' created by a security's changing price over time. When all
                                            geometric conditions of a security's changing price are met, the pattern will be identified
                                            by Tickeron's A.I. as "Emerging."
                                            Confirmed Pattern
                                            As security's price starts to form a pattern, it may eventually hit a very important
                                            level called the "breakout." The 'breakout price' marks a very important level that
                                            confirms the security's price is indeed moving as predicted. When that happens, the
                                            A.I. will identify the pattern as "Confirmed."
                                            Breakout Price
                                            Once a pattern has 'emerged,' and the security price continues to fluctuate, it has
                                            the potential to move in the direction predicted by the pattern type. Tickeron's A.I.
                                            will calculate a Breakout Price based on the pattern type, which if reached will 'confirm'
                                            the pattern.
                                            Target Price
                                            Once a pattern has 'emerged', Tickeron A.I. determines Target price which is the precalculated
                                            goal to be achieved. If this goal is reached then this pattern will be called
                                            successful. An investor will generally make a trade in anticipation that a security is
                                            going to reach its Target price.
                                            Distance to Target
                                            This term is in reference to the "distance to target price," meaning how much the
                                            security has to move to go from its current price to its target price. E.g, if the current
                                            price is $10 and the security's target price is $15, the Distance to Target is $5.
                                            86
                                            Confidence Level
                                            Once Tickeron's A.I. has identified a pattern as 'emerged' or 'confirmed,' the A.I. will
                                            monitor the security price and calculate a Confidence Level. The confidence level
                                            reflects the A.I.'s confidence/likelihood that the security will move towards and eventually
                                            reach the pattern's target price.
                                            Pattern Expiration
                                            When Tickeron's A.I. identifies a pattern, it will establish a timeframe for which it expects
                                            the security to reach the target price. If the pattern fails to reach its target price
                                            during the established timeframe, the pattern will expire.
                                            Successful Pattern
                                            If a pattern is recognized by Tickeron's A.I. and the security reaches its target price
                                            before the pattern expires, it is labeled a Successful Pattern.
                                            Failed Pattern
                                            If a pattern is recognized by Tickeron's A.I. but the security does not reach its target
                                            price before the pattern expires, it is labeled a Failed Pattern.
                                            Pattern Gain/Loss for Bullish Patterns
                                            For bullish patterns, the gain (or loss) is the difference between the entry price and
                                            the exit price. It is calculated as a percentage: (Exit Price - Entry Price)/Entry Price.
                                            The exit price could either be the target price or the price at expiration.
                                            Pattern Gain/Loss for Bearish Patterns
                                            For bearish patterns, the assumed trade is a short sale of the security, and as such
                                            a gain would mean that the entry price is higher than the exit price. The gain or loss
                                            is calculated as a percentage: (Entry Price - Exit Price)/Entry Price. The exit price
                                            could be either the target price or the price at expiration.
                                            Overall Stats for all Tickers
                                            An interactive table providing statistics for all security tickers that meet a certain criteria.
                                            For example, a tickeron.com user can search for a pattern type and specify a
                                            confidence level, and the website will generate all of the securities that meet that criteria.
                                            The overall stats shown for each security ticker are: number of patterns recognized,
                                            number of pattern trades that have reached the target price, average % return
                                            if the pattern was successful, and average % return if the pattern did not succeed.

                                            # of Patterns Recognized
                                            Tickeron's A.I. has the ability to backtest to find patterns in the security market. For
                                            each pattern and/or ticker selected, the A.I. will look back several years, to identify
                                            how many times that pattern has been detected.
                                            # of Pattern Trades Reached Target Price
                                            This number indicates how many times over the analyzed time period that a security
                                            ticker reached its target price within a particular pattern.
                                            Avg. Return if Success
                                            The average return generated by a security if the pattern proves successful, i.e., if
                                            the target price is reached. For bullish patterns, the target price is higher than the
                                            current price, and thus a positive return is the desired outcome. For bearish patterns,
                                            the target price is lower than the current price, and thus a negative return is
                                            the desired outcome. The average return is based on the average of all successful
                                            patterns over the time period analyzed.
                                            Avg. Return if No Success
                                            The average return generated by a security within a pattern, if the pattern does not
                                            prove successful (i.e., does not reach its target price or moves in the opposite direction).
                                            The average return is based on the average of all failed patterns over the time
                                            period analyzed.
                                            Avg. Return / Avg. Time (Days)
                                            This metric measures the average return generated by a successful pattern, and it
                                            also measures the average amount of time that elapsed from the pattern confirmation
                                            to the security reaching either its target price or the pattern expiring.

                                            The patterns presented in this ebook were detected by Tickeron's Artificial Intelligence.
                                            Investors can use this A.I. to track security patterns of interest and to be informed
                                            when securities or other securities emerge or confirm within tho se patterns. The A.I.
                                            will also provide the user with supporting information, such as pattern confidence levels,
                                            predicted target prices, and historical statistics. This additional information allows
                                            users to monitor the pattern's evolution, to bookmark favorites, and to potentially take
                                            action in trading/brokerage accounts to benefit from the forecas ted price movements.

                                            Limitations
                                            The A.I. identifies patterns by their key geometrical elements, formed by changing
                                            security prices when plotted on a chart. The A.I. does not take into consideration
                                            security fundamentals, expert recommendations, market conditions, and so forth.
                                            Trading in securities and other securities involves the risk of loss.

                                            Although our services incorporate historical financial information, past financial
                                            performance is not a guarantee or indicator of future results. Moreover, although
                                            we believe the historical information and strategies we use are reliable, we cannot
                                            guarantee them. Our services are frameworks to be used in your own investment
                                            decisions, but they are not a substitute for your own informed judgment or decisions.
                                            Moreover, they provide only some of the resources that could possibly assist you in
                                            making your decisions. You may accept, reject or modify the recommendations we
                                            provide, and you may consult with other advisors or professionals (at your expense)
                                            as you see fit regarding your personal circumstances. We do not and cannot guarantee
                                            the future performance of your investments. We do not promise that investments
                                            we recommend will be profitable. All investments are subject to various market,
                                            currency, economic, political and business risks. We do not guarantee the suitability
                                            or value of any investment information or strategy. We do not recommend any
                                            brokers or dealers for executing transactions or maintaining accounts and do not
                                            provide a mechanism for placing trades through this site. We are not responsible for
                                            advice or information you receive from anyone through the use of this site. We are
                                            not responsible for any transfers of money to any member outside of our payment
                                            system. Additional information can be found in our Terms of Use, Client Agreement,

                                            All graphs and data on our website and marketing materials are based on simulated
                                            or hypothetical performance that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the graphs
                                            shown in an actual performance record, these graphs do not represent actual trading.
                                            Any trades on websites are recorded paper trades and have not been executed.
                                            Simulated or hypothetical trading algorithms in general are also subject to the fact
                                            that they might be designed with the benefit of some hindsight during backtesting.
                                            No representations are made that any actual account will or is likely to achieve any
                                            profits or losses similar to these graphs or data being shown.

                                            In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical
                                            trading can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. The
                                            ability to withstand losses are material points which can adversely affect actual trading
                                            results. There are factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation
                                            of any specific trading algorithms, which cannot be fully accounted for in the
                                            preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect
                                            actual trading results.

                                            TRADING IS RISKY. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
                                            Actively trading in the market may result in the losses of entire principal amount.
