How to Trade Wedge Chart Patterns

Wedges signal a pause in the current trend. When you encounter this formation, it signals that forex traders are still deciding where to take the pair next.

Wedges could serve as either continuation or reversal patterns.

Rising Wedge

A rising wedge is formed when price consolidates between upward sloping support and resistance lines.

Here, the slope of the support line is steeper than that of the resistance. This indicates that higher lows are being formed faster than higher highs. This leads to a wedge-like formation, which is exactly where the chart pattern gets its name from!

With prices consolidating, we know that a big splash is coming, so we can expect a breakout to either the top or bottom.

If the rising wedge forms after an uptrend, it’s usually a bearish reversal pattern.

On the other hand, if it forms during a downtrend, it could signal a continuation of the down move.

Either way, the important thing is that, when you spot this forex trading chart pattern, you’re ready with your entry orders!

Rising Wedge Chart Pattern

In this first example, a rising wedge formed at the end of an uptrend. Notice how price action is forming new highs, but at a much slower pace than when price makes higher lows.

Trading Chart Pattern: Rising Wedge After

See how price broke down to the downside? That means there are more forex traders desperate to be short than be long!

They pushed the price down to break the trend line, indicating that a downtrend may be in the cards.

Just like in the other forex trading chart patterns we discussed earlier, the price movement after the breakout is approximately the same magnitude as the height of the formation.

Now let’s take a look at another example of a rising wedge formation. Only this time it acts as a bearish continuation signal.

Rising Wedge Chart Pattern Bearish Example

As you can see, the price came from a downtrend before consolidating and sketching higher highs and even higher lows.

Rising Wedge Continuation Chart Pattern

In this case, the price broke to the down side and the downtrend continued. That’s why it’s called a continuation signal yo!

See how the price made a nice move down that’s the same height as the wedge?

What did we learn so far these Japanese candlestick chart patterns?

A rising wedge formed after an uptrend usually leads to a reversal (downtrend) while a rising wedge formed during a downtrend typically results in a continuation (downtrend).

Simply put, a rising wedge leads to a downtrend, which means that it’s a bearish chart pattern!

Falling Wedge

Just like the rising wedge, the falling wedge can either be a reversal or continuation signal.

As a reversal signal, it is formed at a bottom of a downtrend, indicating that an uptrend would come next.

As a continuation signal, it is formed during an uptrend, implying that the upward price action would resume. Unlike the rising wedge, the falling wedge is a bullish chart pattern.

 

Falling Wedge Chart Pattern
In this example, the falling wedge serves as a reversal signal. After a downtrend, the price made lower highs and lower lows.

 

Notice how the falling trend line connecting the highs is steeper than the trend line connecting the lows.

Falling Wedge Breakout Forex Chart Pattern

Upon breaking above the top of the wedge, the pair made a nice move upwards that’s approximately equal to the height of the formation. In this case, the price rally went a few more pips beyond that target!

Let’s take a look at an example where the falling wedge serves as a continuation signal. Like we mentioned earlier, when the falling wedge forms during an uptrend, it usually signals that the trend will resume later on.

Falling Wedge Consolidation Forex Chart Pattern

In this case, the price consolidated for a bit after a strong rally. This could mean that buyers simply paused to catch their breath and probably recruited more people to join the bull camp.

Hmm, it looks like the pair is revving up for a strong move. Which way would it go?

Falling Wedge Continuation Forex Chart Pattern

See how the price broke to the top side and went on to climb higher?

If we placed an entry order above that falling trend line connecting the pair’s highs, we would’ve been able to jump in on the strong uptrend and caught some pips! A good upside target would be the height of the wedge formation.

If you want to go for more pips, you can lock in some profits at the target by closing down a portion of your position, then letting the rest of your position ride.

楔形形态组合

        楔形是表示目前趋势停顿的一种信号。当您遇到这信号时,它表明交易者们还没决定下一步的方向该怎么走。

        楔形是种整理的形态,趋势可能继续 或者 反转。

上升楔形

        当价格在向上倾斜的支持和阻力线内整顿时,上升楔形就形成了。

       上升楔形的 支撑线比阻力线更为陡峭。这表明,渐高的低点 比渐高的高点,形成得更快。这导致了楔子形状的形成,这正是形态名字的由来!

        随着价格的整顿,我们知道,一个大的波动要来了。所以我们可以预期,在顶部 或底部,将有个突破。

        如果上升楔形,是在上升趋势中形成,它通常是一个熊市反转形态。

       相反地,如果它是在下跌的趋势中形成,那么它预示着价格会继续下跌。

       无论怎样,最重要的动作是,当你发现它时,确保你的挂单已经设置好了!

       在这第一个例子中,一个上升楔形在上升的趋势末端形成。注意价格波动是如何形成新的高点,它在一段缓慢的整顿中,逐渐把价格的最低点往上移。

       看到价格是如何突破底部的?这意味着有更多的交易者选择了做空而不是做多!

       当他们把价格往下推,突破趋势线后,这表明下跌趋势几乎是已经确定了。

       就像我们前面讨论过的其他图表形态,当价格突破后的大约移动距离,跟形态的高度相似。

       现在让我们来看看另外一个上升楔形的例子。 只有这时候,它作为熊市持续的信号。

       正如你看到的,价格在下跌趋势中,突然快速的向渐高的高点和渐高的低点进行整顿。

       在这例子中,价格向下突破,然后持续跌势。这就是为什么它被称为熊市的延续信号哟!

       看看价格是如何漂亮的移动到,和楔子形态一样的高度的?

       到目前为止我们学到了什么?

       一个上升楔子形态在涨势后形成,通常会导致反转(跌势);然而一个上升楔子形态在跌势中形成,通常的结果是持续的看跌(跌势)。

       简单地说,上升楔形导致下跌趋势,这意味着它是一个熊市的图表形态!

下跌楔形

       就像上升楔形一样,下降的楔形也可以是一个翻转或延续的信号。

       作为一个翻转信号,它通常在一段下降的趋势底部形成,表明一个上涨趋势即将来临。

       作为一个延续的信号,它通常形成于上涨趋势中,这意味着价格上升的行动将继续。 不同于上升楔形,下降楔形是种牛市的图表形态。

       在这个例子中,下降楔形当做一个翻转信号。 经过一段下跌趋势后,价格会形成渐低的高点和渐低的低点。

       注意看那连接高点的向下趋势线,是如何比 连接低点的趋势线,更为陡峭的。

       当价格突破了楔形的顶部后,货币对向上移动了大约和楔形形态高度一样的距离。在这例子中,价格的上涨超过了目标一些点数!

       让我们再看看一个例子,一个下降楔形被当做延续信号来看的时候。就像我们前面提到的,当一个下降楔形在上涨趋势中形成时,它通常意味着该趋势将继续。

       在这例子中,价格在强烈的弹起过后,稍微的整顿了一下。这可能意味着,买家只是停下来稍稍喘一口气,然后招募更多的人来加入公牛的阵营。

       嗯,看起来这货币对开始强劲的波动,准备迅速的突破了。它会往哪个方向走呢?

       看看价格是怎样突破了形态的顶部,然后接着往上飙升的?

       如果我们在连接货币对高点的,下降趋势线上面放置了订单,那么我们已经加入了这强劲的涨势,而且捞到了一些点数!一个好的上涨目标应该是楔形形态的高度。

       如果你想赚更多钱,你可以在达到目标时,平掉一些仓位来锁定利润,然后让其他的头寸自由的发展。
