Pennant (Continuation Pattern)

A pennant can be used as an entry pattern for the continuation of an established trend. The formation usually occurs after a sharp price movement that can contain gaps (known as the mast or pole of the pennant) where the pennant represents a period of indecision at the midpoint of the full move, consolidating the prior leg. The price is contained by a small symmetrical triangle that begins wide and converges to a point as the pattern develops.

Bullish pennants can form after an uptrend, bearish pennants can form after a downtrend. The pattern is complete when price breaks out of the triangle in the direction of the preceding trend, at which point it will likely continue in this direction. Conservative traders look for additional confirmation of the trend continuing. The target can be estimated by the technique of measuring the length of the mast and extending it in the direction of the breakout. A common stop level is just outside the pennant on the opposite side of the breakout. Pennants should not be mistaken for triangles, which are distinct price patterns.

Will Monero (XMR) hit a new all time high in May?

A bullish pennant (in green) has been developing since a bounce off of support at 0.0096 in late December 2016 reaching a peak and finding resistance at 0.0167. A cup & handle pattern has been clearly identified and at first it looked as though XMR would be ready to take off in early February 2017 buoyed by the anticipation that Jaxx would be adding an XMR wallet ...

Due to abysmal data released for the British Pound over this last week, the Pound was unable to form a significant rally before Brexit concerns took the helm with the approach of the March deadline on formal exit negotiations. We now have a bearish pennant. We will sell at 1.24700 if it is reached.

Bullish Pennant in ETHUSD

ETHUSD has been spending some time now above its 200 day MA since crossing below in 2016 on bearish momentum fueled by DAO hacking. It appears that a bullish pennant has formed. Additionally, the resistance line is above the 200 day ma. I believe that there will be a continuation of the trend that pushed Ethereum out of the sub $10 range.

A chat full of traders can probably argue about the name of this structure - flag, triangle, pennant, channel Either way, this is indicative of more bearish action when the support of this is broken. I've recently taken to only trading the best setups to decrease my losses, and this is it at the moment. UJ and EU for now.

Despite a drop in price over the last several days, partly coinciding with a rapid climb in Bitcoin price, we can see a clear cup & handle pattern forming, along with XMR testing a support line (top pink line) which has been in place since November 2016 and a bullish triangle/pennant. This could all be an indicator that February through to March at least is going ...
