Chart Analysis and Chart Pattern Recognition – Ascending Triangle Pattern
The ascending triangle pattern is a variation of symmetrical triangle formation that has a flat resistance line and a rising support line. The higher lows indicate the increasing demand and give the ascending triangle definitive bullish bias. The ascending triangle usually represents an accumulation stage in bullish market. The ascending triangle is considered as a continuation pattern, especially in an uptrend, but it may also mark a reversal in a downtrend. Volume usually increases on a breakout move. After breakout (similar to rectangle), resistance may turn into potential support and vice versa.
Ascending Triangle Screening page presents a list of stocks forming an Ascending Triangle Pattern.
Tips:
# 1As a continuation pattern, an ascending triangle usually appears within a young trend, characterized by neutral long-term indicators and overbought short-term indicators. An ascending triangle resets short-term indicators to neutral and then continues the movement in parent's direction.
# 2 As a reversal formation, an ascending triangle appears in a mature downtrend, characterized by oversold short-term and long-term indicators. This situation usually generates bullish divergence on long-term indicators.
# 3 For the best results, chart patterns should be considered together with other technical analysis signals and technical trading techniques.
Estimated Target: the main trend support/resistance line.

During the last week, the price has fallen below the Parabolic SAR (stop and reversal). A Parabolic SAR above the price is a bearish signal, and it indicates that momentum is likely to remain in the downward direction. A Parabolic SAR is used as a trailing stop loss for long or short positions. It works best during strong trending periods.

During the last week, the price has declined below the moving average in the center of the Bollinger Bands. The Bollinger Bands are often used with a non-oscillator indicator like chart patterns or a trendline.

During the last week, the price has crossed below the 50 Day Moving Average. Such crossover is considered a bearish signal. The moving average crossover signals work better when the stock develops a strong trend, but they are ineffective when the stock is in a trading range. Moving average crossover systems can be effective, but should be used in conjunction with trend patterns, momentum indicators, candlesticks and other aspects of technical analysis. Use the following links to access Moving Average Crossover trading technique, or use the Technical Stock Screener to see the list of stocks with the Moving Average close to the price level.
