The 5-0 pattern is a distinct 5-point reversal structure, discovered by Scott Carney that typically represents the first pullback of a significant trend reversal. It is a relatively new pattern with 4 legs and specific Fibonacci
measurements of each point within its structure, eliminating room for flexible interpretation. The following measurements define the pattern: the AB leg should be a 1.130 to 1.618 extension of the XA leg. The BC leg should be a 1.618 to 2.240 extension of the AB leg. The CD leg should be 0.500 retracement of the BC leg and it includes a reciprocal AB=CD pattern. With this, the Potential Reversal Zone (PRZ) is defined differently from other harmonic patterns.
Conservative traders look for additional confirmation before entering a trade. The 5-0 pattern can be either bullish or bearish. Targets can be set at the discretion of the trader as the reversal point could be the start of a new trend. Common stop levels lie behind a structure level beyond the D point or the next important level for the Fibonacci sequence.
