Chart Pattern Falling Wedge

Please note that the information about expected price targets provided by Auto Chart Patterns isn't a recommendation for what you should personally do. Do not take this data as investment advice. It should only be used for education and research. As with any trade, always look first and then leap.

A falling wedge is a reversal pattern that is an inclined, converging channel that limits the price movement. The channel lines are directed downwards. It is expected that after the price breaks the upper line of the wedge, it will move further up to approximately the height of the base of the wedge.

The indicator searches for patterns on the last 600 bars. The pattern consists of lines indicating price movements (Price Line) and lines forming a wedge (Wedge). The start and end points of each price line are in 5/5 pivots. The breakout of the pattern is fixed by the close value. The intersection of the wedge lines with the close value in the interval between points 1 and 4 is not allowed. In the In Progress mode, the indicator looks for not only formed, but also emerging patterns. The last two points of such a pattern may not be in pivots, and the last price line will be dotted.

The dotted horizontal line that ends with the Target label indicates the expected price level after the pattern is completed. As new bars appear, the line extends to the right until the last bar, until the pattern status changes from Awaiting to another. The label tooltip shows the price and the current status of the pattern. When the status changes, the color of the label also changes. There are 4 statuses in total:

  • Awaiting. The wedge has not been broken, or it has been broken and at the same time the price has not gone below the extreme point of the bottom line of the wedge and has not yet reached the target.
  • Reached. The price broke the upper line of the wedge and reached the target.
  • Failed. Having broken through the upper line of the wedge, the price did not reach the target and went below the extreme point of the lower line of the wedge, or the lower line was broken.
  • Indefinable. The indicator cannot unambiguously determine the status of the pattern.

If the indicator finds two intersecting patterns, then preference is given to the one whose status is Awaiting. If the status of the intersecting patterns is Failed or Reached, or the status of both is Awaiting, then the pattern that is larger will be displayed on the chart. A pattern with the Indefinable status is deleted if it intersects with a pattern that has a different status.


  • New Pattern. Triggered when a new pattern appears on the chart. A pattern is considered new if it has a different position of point 1 or 3.
  • Pattern Breakout. It is triggered when a bar that has closed outside the wedge appears. Only the breakout in the direction of the target is registered. A breakout in the opposite direction will not trigger an alert.


  • Patterns - Defines which pattern will be drawn depending on its status. Possible values: All, Awaiting and Reached, Only Awaiting, Last Awaiting. If Last Awaiting is selected, only one pattern with the Awaiting status will be displayed, the first point of which is located to the right of all the others.
  • Price Targets - Defines which price targets will be drawn depending status of the pattern. Possible values: All, Only Awaiting, Awaiting and Reached, None.
  • Channel Width Ratio Start/End – The minimum required channel height difference at the beginning and end of the pattern. Percent value.
  • In Progress – Search for emerging patterns.
