Bullish Flag or a Bullish Pennant for TNY?

Bullish flag formations are found in stocks with strong uptrends.

They are called bull flags because the pattern resembles a flag on a pole. The pole is the result of a vertical rise in a stock and the flag results from a period of consolidation.

The flag can be a horizontal rectangle , but is also often angled down away from the prevailing trend.

Another variant is called a bullish pennant , in which the consolidation takes the form of a symmetrical triangle.

The shape of the flag is not as important as the underlying psychology behind the pattern.

Basically, despite a strong vertical rally, the stock refuses to drop appreciably, as bulls snap up any shares they can get.

The breakout from a flag often results in a powerful move higher, measuring the length of the prior flag pole.

It is important to note that these patterns work the same in reverse and are known as bear flags and pennants .

What is a Pennant?
In technical analysis , a pennant is a type of continuation pattern formed when there is a large movement in a security, known as the flagpole, followed by a consolidation period with converging trend lines - the pennant - followed by a breakout movement in the same direction as the initial large movement, which represents the second half of the flagpole.

Bullish pennants , just like its name suggests, signals that bulls are about to go a-charging again.

This means that the sharp climb in price would resume after that brief period of consolidation, when bulls gather enough energy to take the price higher again.

Pennants are often continuation chart patterns formed after strong moves.

After a big upward or downward move, buyers or sellers usually pause to catch their breath before taking the pair further in the same direction.

Because of this, the price usually consolidates and forms a tiny symmetrical triangle, which is called a pennant .

Once the final trough is made, the price heads upward, toward the resistance found near the top of the previous troughs.
