      You bought a stock when it was trending up. But you lost money. You scratch your head and think to yourself “Isnt trend following about buying when the trend is up and selling when the trend reverses?” I was in your shoes.

      If only trend following was this simple and straightforward! Over time, I have discovered 3 wonderful chart patterns which can help you to exploit the opportunities that trends bring.

      What are these chart patterns? Flag, Pennant, and Wedge.

      With the ability to recognize these 3 price patterns, you can advance towards your goal of financial security.

    Cause

      After sprinting, you will need a break before you can continue your next sprint.

      Similarly, prices tend to rest or retreat a little after a burst (uptrend and downtrend alike).

      This is due to profit taking from the market participants, resulting in the flag, pennant, and wedge patterns.

    Spot It Right

      Note the slight differences so that you can spot them correctly to profit.

      #1 Flag

      Characteristics:

      · A trend must be established prior to the flag pattern

      o For a bullish flag pattern, the prior trend must be up

      o For a bearish flag pattern, the prior trend must be down

      · High volume before the flag forms

      · Flag takes 4 days to 5 weeks to form (be wary if the flag takes longer to form)

      · Volume decreases or stagnates as the flag forms

      · Volume increases when price breaks out of the flag

      · 2 parallel lines which run opposite or horizontal to the main trend, hence its name, the flag

      #2 Pennant

      Characteristics:

      · A trend must be established prior to the pennant pattern

      o For a bullish pennant pattern, the prior trend must be up

      o For a bearish pennant pattern, the prior trend must be down

      · Volume characteristics similar to flag

      · Pennant takes days to 3 weeks to form

      · 2 converging lines pointing towards each other to form a triangle

      · Pennant is formed in the opposite direction of the main trend

      #3 Wedge

      Characteristics:

      · A trend must be established prior to the wedge pattern

      o For a bullish wedge pattern, the prior trend must be up

      o For a bearish wedge pattern, the prior trend must be down

      · Volume characteristics similar to flag

      · Wedge takes 2 to 8 weeks to form

      · 2 converging lines pointing toward each other to form a triangle

      · Wedge is formed in the opposite direction of the main trend

    2 Subtle Differences Between A Pennant And A Wedge

      The breakouts on pennants occur near the apex of the triangle. This may not be so for wedges.

      The 2nd subtle difference is the time taken for the pattern to form. Pennants are usually formed in a matter of days while wedges take weeks to form.

    Show Me The Money

      So how can you exploit the opportunities presented by these 3 chart patterns?
