Example of a Downtrend Parallel Channel on PFF

Education
NASDAQ:PFF   iShares Preferred and Income Securities ETF
PFF formed a downtrend parallel channel .
A downtrend parallel channel ( bearish channel ) is a continuation pattern that slopes down and is bound by an upper and lower trend line .
The upper downtrend line it is called main line and marks resistance and the lower downtrend line it is called channel line and marks support.

For a bearish channel , the main line extends down and at least two bounces highs are required to draw it.
To draw a channel line ideally needs two bounces lows, however, some traders draw it using only one bounce low.

In a bearish channel the target is to short when prices reach main line resistance and take profit when prices reach channel line support, then, wait for prices to reach resistance again and repeat.
