A flag can be used as an entry pattern for the continuation of an established trend. The formation usually occurs after a strong trending move that can contain gaps (this move is known as the mast or pole of the flag) where the flag represents a relatively short period of indecision. The pattern usually forms at the midpoint of a full swing and consolidates the prior move. Price is contained by 2 parallel trend lines that lie close together and are sloped against the mast.

Bullish flags can form after an uptrend, bearish flags can form after a downtrend. The pattern has completed when price breaks out of the containing trend lines in the direction of the prevailing trend, at which point it will likely continue its course. Conservative traders may look for additional confirmation of the trend continuing. The target can be estimated through 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 flag on the opposite side of the breakout.

GBPUSD Daily Long, bullish Flag formation and MA 200 bullish

There is a bullish flag formation, supported by the price above a bullish 200 MA and a break of the rising trend channel. This is all supportive of an upward price move. The risk reward ratio is at 9:1 with stop loss just under the lower channel of the flag. I don't see GBP strength against the USD, rather USD weakness against the GBP (see DXY). Trend is up, the ...

Perhaps a bit premature still, but this setup has been cropping up a lot for me. 3 bounces off each channel, with the last one breaking out towards the 1.618 retracement of the final leg.

Hey guys, in front of you you can see two charts, and that's because i wanted to give you a better perspective on how i look at the markets. As you can see on the left (daily timeframe) price has recently broken and closed above multiple resistance levels, which is an indication of a long bias. Therefore our mindset is now on "buy opportunities" and we can take a ...

USDCAD - Current Bear Flag - Awaiting Breakout

USDCAD is currently in a huge Bearish Trend, and has been very sensitive in light of the goings on with North Korea and potential war outbreak. CAD has seen huge strength the last 6-8 weeks on the back of the Hawkish Tone set by the BOC and the fact they have raised interest rates. With many economists looking at 1.22 and 1.20 as potential downside targets, USD ...

Hey guys, this is the 4hr chart on GBPUSD. I'm looking at this because i think there could be potential for upside: we've just bounced from 1,28 (a daily structure) and in doing so price broker and closed above an intraday resistance (purple line). The next daily structure comes at roughly 1,3023 and therefore i'm expecting to see a continuation till we reach that ...

Hi guys, i do not usually share this kind of setup but i've thought it could be helpful to some of you. On this chart you can see a flag pattern that's been setting up on the hourly timeframe. This happened after that a support was broken by price action, creating the conditions of a downtrend: we cuold, as usual, wait to see price coming up to retest our broken ...

Hi guys, here's a simple pattern technique that's very powerful if used correctly: a flag pattern. On GBPNZD we've recently created a new low, by breaking and closing below the black line. This make me want to short this market, and therefore the next potentially selling place would be the support that's been broken. In this case, as soon as we've touched it, ...

I love this setup! We have lower highs over a good time period, and a strong support. So... what will happen? I guess, as the support and the resistance had been tested multiple times already, there is a guaranteed breakout. And since we are in a uptrend, I believe it will rocket away. Sky is the limit. So what about NASA? I will enter a long position, as soon ...

The asset has also provided a flag pattern and now is in a flag pattern again, the 100 MA will provide support the price, and the Coppock curve is a in a triangle pattern and it will most likely breakout upwards to be positive. Also, this is backed by the volume decreasing showing a breakout is Imminent.

The pound seems to be in a very large flag pattern, but a mini triangle pattern, so this brings about the perfect swing trade,the 200 MA will provide resistance and so thats the stop-loss, but the short is when the Pound drops below the 100 MA till the lower support trendline.

Apple long-term Buy

I bought AAPL when my market order was filled at 119.00, because it had exploded out of a short-term flag pattern and long-term cup and handle, and I'm going to keep my position till September on the announcement of the iPhone 8, but I would look out for the Coppock curve forming an ascending triangle meaning there could be a deceasing in price in the few months.

Gold sees to be forming a Flag pattern or a double bottom, but my bets are on flag pattern as volume seems to be decreasing, also, the 100 Moving Average is providing support while the 200 Moving Average is providing resistance.So, short for now.

There are some incredibly tasty trading opportunities on USDJPY this week.

Additionally, we have just broken through the neckline of the head&shoulders pattern and have just retraced to test it. My stop loss is tight above ...
