Very interesting regarding the Gartley pattern, if I had waited I would have had a much better entry with a better stop position.
Could you advise what process you took to identify the gartley pattern ?
Just the naked eye! I only trade harmonics (with worthy confluence) and have a note of the ratios that I use at hand when charting. If I believe I see some price action that may fit the shape of a harmonic pattern then i'll measure up the retracements and take it from there! It's a simple process. I used Six Figure Capital to get my head around it! They gave me my ratios etc. http://www.sixfigurecapital.com/2.html
