CHART PATTERNS

CHART PATTERNS

In financial market, the force of buyers and sellers creates a unique formation of
price patterns in the charts. These chart price patterns, if understand correctly gives
meaningful buy signal or sell signal. These chart patterns classified as continuous
patterns and reversal patterns. Below we present numerous Indian stock market
chart patterns.

Continuous chart patterns.
Continuous chart patterns means if you found the particular chart pattern in the chart,
the price tend to continue the trend. Common continuous chart patterns are ascending
triangle, flags, pennants, running triangle etc.
Reversal chart patterns
The reversal chart patterns means if your found the reversal chart pattern in the chart,
the price tend to reverse the trend. Common reversal chart patterns are head and shoulders, round bottom, double top, double bottom, triple top, triple bottom etc

Ascending triangle
Ascending triangle pattern formed by sellers sell the stock at constant prices, buyers
buy the stock by higher and higher prices. Or the market sentiment turns bullish.
We may call it bullish consolidation. Generally it is considered as continuation pattern.

Bull Flag
Flags considered as continuation pattern. Normally it is found in bull stage and bear
stage. Sellers sell the stock at lower and lower prices; buyers buy the stock at lower
and lower prices. At the end of pattern the positive fundamental or the positive market
sentiment drive the buyers to buy the price at higher prices.

Bullish Pennants
Pennants are most reliable continuation pattern. It rarely produces the trend reverse
result. These are the temporary halting area in the continuous up trend or the downtrend
of the script. It is much like the flag. Here the buyer’s trend line slopes upward towards
the seller’s trend line.

Cup with handle
It is a chart pattern found in the stock market resembling the cup with handle. The bottom
formed by the negative sentiment in the market. Then the positive fundamentals of the
scripts drive the buyers to buy at the bottom. Generally it is considered as the continuation
pattern found in the bull stage and bear stage.

Symmetrical triangles
Symmetrical triangle is a continuous chart pattern found in bull stage and bear stages of
the market. It is easily recognizable with clear shape. The seller sells the script at lower
and lower prices. The buyers buy the script at higher and higher prices. Due to these two
forces gives the symmetrical triangle shape to chart. If the market sentiment turns to positive the buyers will get the edge and drive the prices to breakout the seller’s trend line.

Wedge pattern
Wedge pattern in stock prices formed by two converging trend lines both formed by the
sellers and buyers. The wedge may be rising in nature or falling in nature. It is commonly

the resultant price movement may go either direction. It is looks like the pennant and
resemble like the flags.

The reliability of chart patterns vary widely depends on the chart patterns. Some chart
patterns give more reliability than the others. We should not totally depend on the chart
patterns alone. If you found the chart pattern correctly then other your own indicators
give the positive signal in confirmation with the chart pattern you can take buy or sell.
