Pennant Failure Trading System

This strategy is very versatile because you can use any timeframe and any currency pair you prefer. A pennant is a pattern formation which is very easy to identify on any chart. This pattern is formed by 2 lines. One line – the one that is above prices – is descending, and the other one – the one that is below prices – is ascending. The lines tend to converge forming a triangle. We use this strategy as a reversal pattern. For this strategy, we will use the MACD-Histogram to confirm the trade and to optimize our exit point.
Trading rules Pennant Failure Trading System:
for this strategy, you should draw the lines below and above prices and enter on the breakout of the pattern. If the pennant is at the top, we will try to find a short sell opportunity; if the pennant is at the bottom of the chart, we will try to find a good buying opportunity. To exit the trade, we will use the MACD-Histogram. If we are in a long position, we will wait until the MACD- Histogram is above its centerline and reach its peak. If we are in a short position, we will wait until the MACD-
Histogram is below its centerline and reach its bottom. Once MACD-Histogram upticks, we will exit the trade. The better way to see how any strategy really works is to look at some real charts.
