Picture 12. "Pennon" continuation pattern

"Pennon" pattern is one of the individual cases of the flag pattern. It is formed in those cases when the support gradually increases, and the resistance gradually lowers. From the point of view of price dynamics the consolidation takes place. The break in the level of resistance, as a rule, leads to the formation of new current trend and the potential of this movement is no smaller than the size of the "flagpole".
