Pennant Forex Pattern

The pennants are closely related to the flags. The same principles apply. The sole difference is that the consolidation area better resembles a pennant, as the support and resistance lines converge.

If the original trend is bullish, then the chart pattern is a bullish pennant. In the Figure below the pennant pole is A to B The pennant-shaped consolidation is framed by C, B, and D. When the market breaks through the resistance line B to D, the price objective is E. The amplitude of the target price is D to E, and it is equal to the pennant pole A to B. The price target measurement starts from the breakout point. In the numerical example, the height of the pennant pole is measured as the difference between 1.5500 and 1.4500, or 1000 pips. Once the resistance line is broken at 1.5200, the price target is 1.6200, as 1000 pips from 1.5200.
