DESCENDING TRIANGLE (TREND CONTINUATION)

FX:NZDCAD   New Zealand Dollar/Canadian Dollar
64 0 14
Descending triangles are mainly considered continuation patterns but they
also can be used as reversals. This pattern starts with an initial impulse move
followed by a point of consolidation. As price consolidates it makes lower highs
and equal lows forming the descending triangle . the momentum builds up and
usually breaks out back into the direction of the trend. If price does break
back into the direction of the trend then look for a continuation and the target
is the Distance Between The Mouth Of The Triangle Added To The Breakout but
preferably I use a 100% extension of the first impulse move.
