Today, I will be covering a continuation trading pattern called a flag. Flag can be bullish and bearish. I will cover only bullish patterns, it works just as well for bear flags as well. Concept explained and history of this pattern will be covered at the end.
What is a flag?
The pattern is exactly how it sounds; it looks like a flag waving. The pole part of the flag is the fast price rise and the flag itself is the consolidation period. (Look at my chart for reference). A bull flag is a continuation pattern where the price stalls and consolidates briefly before continuing to rise further.
