This paper focuses on how to predict stock trends quantitatively and to differentiate turning point. Through the summarizing of the main theories and methods in security technical analysis, this paper propose the hypothesis that two contiguous white bars or black bars indicate the uptrend or downtrend, which is called "Two-stage pattern strategy (TSPS)". Empirical test supports the hypothesis and shows that when the forecasted short-term trend is consistent with the bullish or bearish long-term trend, the accurate rate of the hypothesis is higher. Trading rules according to the TSPS method have also been discovered and support the method's profitability.
