Stock Chart Platform Compression Patterns for Early Entries?

Trade with Professional Traders for Higher Profits

The stock chart example below recently had a strong “Pop Out of the Box” Candlestick Pattern, after a Platform compression pattern. Preceding the compression, the price action was a Trading Range.

Oftentimes, Trading Ranges compress into a tighter formation when Dark Pool Quiet Accumulation is underway. This run is dominated by Professional Traders using Technical Analysis.

A crossover confirmation of both the Chaikin Oscillator ChiOsc indicator which is a stock Volume Oscillator, and the Money Flow Index indicator reveal the strength of the breakout.

It is easy to trade with the Professional Traders as they are not emotional, set precise entries and exits, and they have fewer wicks and tails on candlesticks. The Market Condition for Platform Candlestick Pattern formations occurs when the Buy Side Institutions have ample capital to accumulate more stock for their Mutual and Pension Funds.

Whenever there is a huge Flow of Funds into Mutual Funds, patterns like this quickly develop. The key is the entry which must be calculated on the Platform compression pattern magnitude, and its probable conclusion.

Not all compression patterns compress tightly before the breakout. This is a velocity run, and these frequently do not have a triangular compression before the breakout as do momentum runs.

Velocity runs are the footprint of Professional Traders, often who are buying in just prior to the breakout. Stock Volume patterns confirm heavy concentrations of Professional Traders rather than High Frequency Traders HFT.
