What is a Symmetrical Triangle Pattern?

The Symmetrical Triangle is usually a continuation pattern. It represents a pause in the existing uptrend after which the original uptrend gets resumes. A breakout from the upper trend line marks the continuation of an uptrend while a breakdown from the lower trend line marks the start of a new bearish trend . This pattern is also known as a wedge chart pattern.

When there is an extreme demand in prices there is an uptrend. It continued as the demand increases.

Phase 2: Pause
When demand is equal to supply the there is a pause in an uptrend and investors start to book profits here. As prices consolidate it forms converging trend lines . As there is equal demand and supply investors buy on the lower trend line and sell on the upper trend line . Which results in forming a Symmetrical Triangle Pattern .

Phase 3

And again on the breakout, the volume surges. Volume with Breakout gives a good indication of a successful uptrend.
