About Us

Tradable Patterns was founded to demonstrate that the patterns recurring in liquid futures, spot FX and cryptocurrency markets can be analyzed to enhance trading performance. Tradable Patterns’ Today's Top 3 Trades provides technical analysis on a subset of 3 futures and spot FX markets, which it considers worth monitoring for the day/week for trend reversal or continuation. Futures coverage is primarily on CME/ICE commodities and equity indices with periodic analysis on the VIX futures. Tradable Patterns now also offers Crypto Weekly Outlook on Bitcoin (BTCUSD), Ethereum (ETHUSD) and Ripple (XRPUSD), providing clues as to what might happen in the coming week. For less experienced traders, online tutorials and workshops are also available. Tradable Patterns registered as a CTA (Commodity Trading Advisor) and IB (Introducing Broker) with the NFA (National Futures Association) - a US futures regulator. NFA ID: 0489256
