WEDGE PATTERN ( TREND REVERSAL)

FX:EURJPY   Euro Fx/Japanese Yen
164 1 16
Wedges are both trend reversal and continuation patterns. One can define
the different by knowing that a rising wedge in a up trend is a sign of a reversal
whereas a rising wedge in a downtrend is considered as a type of retracementand
you want to be looking to trade back into the direction of the trend (see attachment)
This is also the same for descending wedges . a descending wedge in a downtrend is
the reversal sign and in a up trend is a retracement. The reversal wedge patterns
are signs of a trend losing strength. The pattern pushes into a new highs or lows
but with momentum slowing forming the wedge pattern. once price breaks the
wedge and prior high or low confirming the reversol, I preferably always wait for
a pullback to the breakout of a fib level trading this pattern. Target is the Distance
Between The Mouth of the wedge Added To The Breakout.

Conventional Way To Terad The Wedge Reversal:
