Continuation Chart Patterns

When these continuation chart patterns are formed they confirm that the current Forex trend is going to continue moving in the same direction.

 

These patterns are used by currency traders to identify halfway points of the trend, this is because they form at the halfway point of a trend.

 

There are four types:

  • Ascending triangle
  • Descending triangle
  • Bull flag/pennant
  • Bear flag/pennant

 

Ascending Triangle

The ascending triangle is formed in an uptrend and it shows that the upward direction of the market is going to continue.

 

It shows that there is a resistance level that the buyers keep pushing each time moving it higher, and once it breaks price will continue moving upward.


The overhead resistance temporarily prevents the Currency market from advancing higher, while the rising trend line beneath the pattern signals that buyers are still present. An upside penetration of the upper line is a technical buy signal for a market breaking out from an ascending triangle.

 

Found within a Forex uptrend, the ascending triangle forms as a consolidation period within the uptrend and indicates upside continuation will follow.

Ascending Triangle Chart Pattern Currency Trading



The market formed an ascending triangle during its uptrend which led to upside continuation. The buy point is when price clears the upper sloping line and the market continues moving upwards.


Descending Triangle

The descending triangle is formed in a downtrend and it shows that the downward direction of price movement is going to continue.

 

It shows that there is a support level that the sellers keep pushing each time moving it lower, and once it breaks price will continue moving downwards.

 

The support temporarily prevents the market from declining, while the descending sloping line above the pattern signals that sellers are still present. A downside penetration of the lower line is a technical sell signal for a market breaking down from a descending triangle, and indicates selling will follow.

 

Found within a Forex downtrend, the descending triangle forms as a consolidation period within the downtrend and indicates downside continuation will follow.

Descending Triangle Continuation Chart Pattern Trading

Bull Flag/Pennant

This pattern forms what looks like a rectangle. The rectangle is formed by two parallel lines that act as support and resistance for the price until the price breaks out. In general, the flag will not be perfectly flat but it will be sloping.

 

The bull flag is found within a Forex uptrend. In this continuation pattern where the market retraces slightly, it is therefore a slight retracement with narrow price action that has a slight downward tilt. The technical buy point is when price penetrates the upper line of the flag. The flag portion has highs and lows which can be connected by small lines which are parallel, giving it the look of a small channel.

 

The pennant occurs at halfway point of a bullish upward trend and after a breakout a similar move equal to the height of the flagpole is expected.

Bull Flag Continuation Chart Pattern Currency Trading


The bull pennant above was just a resting period as the market gathered strength to break out and move higher. The continuation signal was confirmed as the upper line was broken to the upside.

 

Bear Flag/Pennant

This flag is found in a Forex downtrend. The bear flag is a continuation pattern where the price retraces slightly with a narrow price action that has a slight upward tilt. The technical sell point is when price penetrates the lower line of the inverted flag. The pennant portion has highs and lows which can be connected by small lines which are parallel, giving it the look of a small channel.

Bear Flag Continuation Chart Pattern Currency Trading


The bear pennant above was just a resting period for the market prior to more selling. The continuation signal was confirmed as the lower line was broken to the downside.
