W4 – Line break

Developed at Definedge.

W4 pattern of the line break chart shows the highest range of a line in last 4 lines. It shows that there was a highest different between two prices in the line in last four lines.

It is not necessary that the color of previous lines should be the same. Color of previous lines doesn’t matter in case of W4 lines.

Last line in a bullish trend reversal pattern will always be a W4 pattern. The reversal is more significant if W4 appears in other four line reversal pattern. W4 appearing as a continuation pattern shows the strength of the trend in place.

Prashant Shah introduced this concept in a research paper, and his book on the Line-break charts can be found on the Definedge Shelf.
