the flag chart pattern in NIFTY

NSE:NIFTY   Nifty 50 Index
A flag chart pattern is formed when the market consolidates in a narrow range after a sharp move.

Flag Pattern is one of the most popular chart patterns, formed by price action, which is contained within a small rectangle or a channel in the shape of a flag. Flags are short-term continuation patterns that mark a small consolidation before the previous move resumes.

Flags can be seen in any time frame but normally consist of about five to 15 price bars.
