Perfect Butterfly

NOTE:  Images taken from the books on Harmonic Trading by Scott Carney

The Perfect Butterfly Pattern  is very similar to the Butterfly Pattern except that the C Point Retracement is a range between 50.0% to 88.6%, compared to the Butterfly Pattern which starts from a range of 38.2%  to the same 88.6%.
Let us take a look at the features of the Perfect Butterfly Pattern:
a.   Retracement of the B point at exact 78.6%.
b.   Retracement of the C point within a range of 50.0% to 88.6%
c.    BC projection of 161.8% only. In the Butterfly Pattern it is a range from 161.8% to 224.0%
d.    Constraint of 127.2% % Extension of the XA leg.
Let us draw the Pattern using the following procedures:
1. Draw a Fibonacci Retracement Grid starting from point X to point A to get where point B retraced. In this case it is exactly  78.6.%.

2. Draw a Fibonacci Retracement Grid starting from point A to point B to get where point C retraced. In this case it is 61.8%.%

3. Project BC by drawing a Fibonacci Extension from C to B using C as Point of Origin and Point of Termination. From the Perfect Butterfly  image this should be exactly 161.8% which is at 0.02 and mark it as our tentative point D or PRZ.

4. The next step is to draw the Constraint which is an 127.2.%  Extension  of the XA leg.  We see that this 127.2.% Extension falls at 0.00  lower than our tentative D of 0.02 .In cases like this the tentative D becomes the minimum PRZ and the Constraint at 127.2..0% becomes the Maximum PRZ. To avoid confusion, we mark the maximum PRZ  as D1 and the minimum PRZ  as D2.

5. This figure shows the Pattern with the corresponding Fibonacci measurements.

6. We now draw the Pattern by connecting the points of the two Triangles. In TRT Ich-Monics, we take the Constraint as the Final Determinant of the D  Point but we also take note of the D2 in case the stock makes a reversal on this point. This is the complete Perfect Bullish Butterfly  Pattern.

7. Just like in our last lesson, to make the pattern useful, we have to draw a final Fibonacci Retracement Gridline starting from Point A to Point D to establish our TRT Critical Action Zones.

To better appreciate the Pattern, I would like us to take a look at some examples.
This  is SSI with a Perfect Bullish Butterfly Pattern.

This is PNB with a Perfect Bearish Butterfly Pattern.
NOTE:  Sometimes some figures appear as decimals. At other times they appear as percentages. To convert decimals to percentage just move the decimal point two places to the right. For example 1.618 is expressed in percentage as 161.8%.
