Merrill’s patterns

Sometimes it’s good to go back to basics. Arthur Merrill, the author of Behavior of Prices on Wall Street, compared the market to a warped roulette wheel. It has a bias and often tips its hand. One way it does this is graphical, in the relation of swing legs to one another.

John Bollinger brought Merrill to the attention of the online world some years ago when he posted Merrill’s 16 W and 16 M patterns. These patterns, of course, all have four legs, but they differ in their message to traders. They’re a one-page Cliff Notes for pattern traders.
