EURGBP prints continuation pattern on monthly chart; finds support

EURGBP shows flag-like continuation pattern on Monthly Chart

Flag or pennant-like chart patterns are trend continuation patterns. They consists of two key features: a ‘flagpole’ and a ‘flag’ or ‘pennant’. The flagpole represents the initial impulse and the flag represents a consolidation / retracement movement. Once the consolidation / retracement is over, price will erupt out of the flag and continue its previous movement. As we can see in this monthly chart of EURGBP, both features are prominent (see labels 1 and 2).

July price action outside resistance

We can see from price action since beginning of 2013 that the pair is trading around its resistance trendline (red). With the end of July nearly here, we can see the whole monthly candle outside resistance (point 3). In addition, support can be found around 0.84 which is a multiple-year support resistance level (point 4, 5, 6). A successful move outside resistance could signal the start of the continuation move.

Closing back below resistance trendline is a negative development.

    Thanks for sharing your insight. May I also please ask if the daily chart also qualify as cup & handler pattern? which mean failing any buy setup in LTF & if price close above 17Jul price, I can jump in? Thanks for your thought.

    Hi Daniel, the chart pattern in the daily chart qualifies as cup and handle. You need to take note of two resistance levels. 1) Draw slightly downward sloping trendline connecting the tops. 2) Horizontal level based on the topmost point. Cup and Handle is confirmed when 1) is broken upwards. Cup and Handle Pattern is also a Continuation Pattern.
