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 has completed 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 may look for additional confirmation of the trend continuing. The target can be estimated using 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.

Huge bullish pennant continuation setting up on GNOBTC and with a lot of sideways consolidation in the last 18 hours. The Bollingers are getting super tight as well so we could be looking at something rather soon (next 48 hours). Buy walls are behind this like Donald Trump was behind....well...Donald Trump. The flag pole on this showed an increase of 0.075 BTC, ...

Price appears to be getting wedged by 7 year long support trend-line below and $34.5 resistance above. Anticipating break to the upside in coming months where next resistance appears to be $37. Will likely buy OTM calls if/when we dip into support zone. GLTA!

Bearish Bat on 4H Aussie/ Dollar

On the Weekly Chart, the pair almost seems to be making a Bear Pennant and has been in a significant downward trend. at the moment there is a Bearish Bat pattern! typically one might want to place stops above the pattern's entirety, but I like Risk/ Reward to be at least 1 risk/ 2 reward. There are 4 TP's each at signiciant Fib. Retrace levels of the AD leg. ...

LSK to have big breakout in < 4 days (ETA: 28-6 00:00)

Lisk is doing good, real good. LSK/BTC is now up 150% since previous month (24-5). 24th was the day after the first major upwards breakout (100%) for Lisk. As illustrated on the TA we see that after the first bullish breakout we see a pennant forming. After wich surely another breakout followed (initially 100%, to be boosted almost up to 200%) Is what we are ...

Ascending triangle here, could break either way really. Wait for a breakout candle to confirm any kind of entry. Fairly high probability setup but wait for the price action to make a move. Enjoy
