Pennant Pattern

pennant chart pattern

A pennant pattern is a technical analysis pattern that suggests a trend has stopped and is in a consolidation phase.

This can be either bullish or bearish, depending on it’s relation to the flag pole.

For it to be identified correctly, you have to identify the flag pole before the consolidation phase.

The flag pole is the rapid rise or fall of prices at the beginning of the consolidation phase.

A new trend is often established if the stock breaks upward through the top resistance line (signalling a bullish pattern), or breaks down through the support line (signalling a bearish pattern).

The pennant pattern gets its name from the resemblance of its shape to a flag planted on a hilltop. The Pennant formation typically forms after an extended move in one direction, and indicates that the preceding move has exhausted most of its momentum.


Double Top Reversal

The Double Top shows two peaks with a trough in between them. The second sell off is sharp and drops down through previous support levels. This is seen as a long term trend reversal.



Triple Top

Triple Top Chart Pattern

Triple tops must occur after an uptrend to predict the reversal in the movement of an asset’s price. It has 3 peaks & signals that the asset may no longer be rallying, and lower prices may be coming.


Death Cross

Inverted Cup and Handle Pattern
