CURRENT MOVE :
THE BULLISH FLAG PATTERN (RECTANGULAR SHAPE)
The bullish flag pattern is a powerful technical pattern that can develop from the lowest time frame possible (1-minute TF) all the way up to the monthly chart.
More, the bullish flag pattern is a universal pattern that can show up in all markets.Components of a Flag Pattern
1- The flag pole
2- The flag
3- The continuation
1- The Flag Pole
This is the initial move in price. It can be represented by either an uptrend (BULLISH)or a downtrend(BEARISH).
The angle of this move is irrelevant in terms of the validity of the flag pattern.
The distance of the move should be measured by calculating the previous swing high or low to the current swing high or low.
2- The Flag
The flag formation is the key to this pattern. This is the point at which, after a strong move in price, the market consolidates for a period of time.
The length of time is irrelevant(most times Flags are short, less than 3 weeks long), however do note that longer consolidation periods tend to lead to more aggressive breakouts.
3- The Continuation
At this point the market has finished consolidating and is now trending in the original direction.
Using the distance of the height of the flag , we now have a measured objective for a possible target (this continuation we will likely see as we wait for price to breakout of the flag). And lastly Volume trend Downward trend 71% of the time.
TECHNICALS suggests that price is ranging inside the rectangular flag, and waiting to breakout for a measured move up to 1.618fib extension. Buy only when price breaks out of the flag and closes outside it.
