For the pennant to complete it must have 3 top and 3 bottom touches of the formation. Which ever way the fourth touch goes is the direction and usually abides by the the previous trend. To complete pennant 3 we therefore still need one touch down and one touch up after that. Where-as your arrows would suggest only one more leg up to 1208. before the next breakout to the downside?

I would also only consider a predictable drop the length of the back of the pennant. So we are talking about a predictable $6-8 downside from the point of exit from the pennant. Which could be as little as your 1. (1199.70).

Just my thoughts. Good luck!

Hi David, thanks for your input.....
Personally I don't find many patterns that follow the script as perfectly as you describe, if they did, we would be millionaires in no time at all. I prefer to wait for a retracement based on fib levels, which are also never a guarantee, but just my personal preference. ;0)
