Ascending Channel on XPT/USD @ D1

AndriyMoraru Updated   
OANDA:XPTUSD   Platinum / U.S. Dollar
An ascending channel pattern formed on the daily chart of the XPT/USD pair (Platinum CFD) after a downtrend that lasted for about one month. It can now be used for a bearish breakout trade setup. The pattern's borders are marked with the yellow lines. The potential entry level is at the cyan line. The potential take-profit level is at the green line. The position of both lines is calculated based on the channel's width. The stop-loss is to be set to the high of the breakout candle (or to the high of the preceding candle if the breakout one is trading mostly outside the channel) - it isn't shown on this chart.
