ASCENDING TRIANGLE (TREND CONTINUATION)

FX:AUDNZD   Australian Dollar/New Zealand Dollar
143 0 15
Ascending triangles are mainly considered continuation patterns but they
also can be used as reversals. This pattern starts with initial impulse move
followed by a point of consolidation. As priceconsolidates it makes higher
lows and the same highs until the momentum builds and breaks out back into
the direction of the trend. If price does break back into the direction of the trend
the look for a continuation and a target the Distance Between The Mouth Of
The Triangle Added To The Breakout but preferably I use a 100% extension of
the first impulse move.
