Ascending Triangle Futures Trading Chart Pattern

What is an Ascending Triangle Futures Chart Pattern?

Ascending Triangles example

What Does a Ascending Triangle Chart Pattern Mean?

The price will rise and fall within[-] the triangle until support and resistance converge. At that point, the apex, breakout occurs, usually upwards.

Broadening Top Futures Trading Chart Pattern

What is a Broadening Top Futures Chart Pattern?

Broadening Top isolated A broadening top is a futures chart pattern that can occur on an upwards trend. It is generally classified as a reversal pattern but some traders argue that there is approximately a 50/50 split between whether it tends to move upwards or downwards upon completion of the pattern. For this reason, it can often be avoided by traders. It can be viewed as the opposite of a symmetrical triangle.

How Do I Recognize a Broadening Top Futures Chart Pattern?

A broadening top is comprised of diverging support and resistance lines and resembles a megaphone. The rising resistance line and falling support line continue until the trend reverses.

From our friend Jim Wyckoff at JimWyckoff.com

bonds futures; The U.S. Treasury bond futures market has been trending higher since early July and late this week hit a two-month high. The bond market bulls are in near-term technical control, which means the path of least resistance for prices will remain sideway to higher in the near term. Also, any geopolitical flare-ups will support flight-to-quality demand for U.S. Treasuries. .
