Chart Patterns are naturally occurring patterns that typically repeat over a period of time. These patterns play a significant role in technical analysis. For proponents, the theory is that by studying repeating patterns, a trader will be able to anticipate future price movements. Opponents of the theory believe that "past performance does not guarantee future results".

Examples of Classical Chart Patterns:

  • Head and Shoulders
  • Cup and Handle
  • Double Top and Double Bottom
  • Triple Top and Triple Bottom
  • Broadening Top
Broadening tops are a bearish pattern. The pattern is formed by a series of five consecutive small reversals followed by a substantial decline.
  • Wedge
  • Triangle
  • Flag and Pennant
