Trading The Forex Master Pattern Method

The Forex Master Pattern is an alternative form of technical analysis that provides a framework which helps you to find and follow the hidden price pattern that reveals the true intentions of financial markets. This market pattern is formed by 3 phases, which complete 1 market cycle.

The Phase 1 is the contraction point (or Value). It is defined as simultaneous higher low and lower high.

On Phase 2 we get higher timeframe activation (also called Expansion), which is where price oscillates above and below the average price defined on Phase 1.

On Phase 3 is where we get a sustained deviation from value (the Trend).

How do you trade this?

The basic strategy is very simple. Your higher timeframe provides a stable directional bias. It is important to have a good separation between HTF and LTF, for example 4H and 15M, 4H and 5M or 1H and 1M are good combos.

When your HTF is above value, you buy your LTF below value.

When your HTF is below value, you sell your LTF above value.

Hey Bro. Great work with this indicator and thanks for sharing the baseline principles with us as well. AWESOME. One thing I wasn't clear about. Regarding determining the major expansion lines, what did you mean by "these are the more important lines which are the ones that have oscillation above and below the origin point"? What is the origin point that you check for oscillation around? Thanks and cheers!!!

Hi buddy, I am glad you are finding this useful. The origin point is classified as a simultaneous higher low and lower high, and that is done mechanically using a zigzag, you can use fractals too and get a similar results. When price oscillates above and below this contraction point (or origin point), it confirms that new value is forming there, and the minor box/lines turn into a major box/line (the blue box with solid line).

But give how this is coded, a minor contraction point can't be confirmed as major anymore if you get another contraction point after it (before it got confirmed as major), so that is why I said that was an important or major point, because you can see there was oscillation above and below it (or a funneling out action). So even though it was printed as minor, it was actually a good major.
