Potential Continuation zone is a powerful concept for Harmonic Pattern Trading. Potential Continuation Zone was introduced first in the book: Guide to Precision Harmonic Pattern Trading. Simply speaking, the potential continuation zone is the opposite concpet to the potential reversal zone (PRZ). Typically, potential continuation zone is placed above the point D of the bullish Harmonic Pattern. Likewise, it is placed below the point D of bearish Harmonic Pattern. At simplest level, you can use the Potential Continuation Zone like support and resistance. Here we will show you how to improve your Harmonic trading marginally using this powerful PCZ concept.
As it was shown in the book, good harmonic patterns for your trading have a well balanced Potential Continuation Zone and Potential Reversal Zone. Typically harmonic patterns with good spread of PCZ levels will help your trading immensely. In this technique, you will be looking at those harmonic patterns in higher timeframe first. Then lock the pattern in your chart. Now change your timeframe to lower like M30 or H1 or H4, etc.
You will wait for the formation of Harmonic pattern near the PCZ level of higher timeframe. Once you have found the harmonic pattern near PCZ level, then there is potential entry for you. You will be triggered when the price crosses the PCZ level and you will trade in the direction of Harmonic pattern in lower timeframe.
This is one of the technique you can trade with Potential Continuation zone. If the formation of harmonic pattern in lower timeframe coincide with Potential Reversal Zone of higher timeframe, you can still make the same trading decision as I have described before.
With this technique, your accuracy of harmonic trading will increase marginally. This technique works well because you have good grab of market insight in both higher and lower timeframe.
