With the free version of the cTrader harmonic scanner, you can decide which of the Two (2) patterns you would like to see and set the colour to suit your chart theme and when a pattern forms you will also see the name of the pattern on the chart. As you can see from the screenshot below a Bullish Bat pattern has not yet formed, this is very useful for the trader to see which patterns are currently being formed, but not yet complete.
The following patterns are recognised when in use, you can turn off any of the patterns from the indicators settings window.
- Harmonic Gartley
- Harmonic Crab
