Descending Triangle, Weak Gartley combo, 4 Hr

BITSTAMP:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
This descending triangle is always a bearish pattern , indicating a strong sell signal. Here we see it paired with either a "weak" Gartley or Crab advanced pattern . Technically it's a failed gartley . I call it weak, because the 'B' point retracement of XA doesn't reach the .618 fib levels. To be fair this has more of a potential for the Crab pattern , which would make the floating 'B' point valid and would also corroborate with our Larger Gartley pattern on the daily chart .

I *may* have helped push this up and out of the descending triangle after we bounced on the blue .618 fib line. A large enough buy at the right times can do that. Considering that I was heading out of town for four days of backpacking off the grid; the failed break out was a signal that I didn't want to have open short positions of substantial size left unattended. Likely it would have continued sideways regardless but the end result remains the same.

Just an update on the the trade management side:

Seems more like a bullish pennant on the 4h scale..

A Pennant (Bullish) follows a steep, or nearly vertical rise in price action. The four hour chart does agree with much I'd say, but that's where it ends for the pennant unfortunately. Unlike a descending triangle which will see price establish a "bottom", the bullish pennant consists of two converging trendlines that form a narrow, tapering flag shape. The Pennant shape generally appears as a horizontal (symmetrical) shape, rather than one with a downtrend or uptrend.
