Flag Chart Pattern
A flag chart pattern is a continuation pattern, which means that when this shape appears on the chart of a stock’s prices movement, it acts as a confirmation that the trend which was in progress prior to the emergence of the pattern is likely to continue in the same direction.
The flag pattern is formed when a sharp price movement is then followed by a period of relatively flat trading which zig-zags moderately at the end of the initial sharp movement (the flag-pole). This sideways movement generally forms a rectangular shape by moving between short-term levels of support and resistance. The completion of the pattern occurs when there is a breakout of price movement in the same direction as the sharp move which initiated the flag pattern.
