Ascending Triangle Pattern Swing Trading System

Put on your headphones and enjoy podcast ~!
The ascending triangle pattern swing trading system is another explosive chart pattern trading system that can bag you a lot of pips easily if you know what to look for.
The ascending triangle chart pattern forms when two converging trendlines (support levels & resistance levels) converge to form an apex (point).
The ascending triangle chart pattern is generally considered a bullish formation and it usually forms during a currency pair uptrend as a continuation pattern.
This ascending triangle chart pattern is confirmed when the currency pair price breaks out of the ascending triangle formation to the upside and closes above the upper resistance trendline.
If however, when the currency pair breaks out to the downside, the ascending triangle now is a reversal pattern.

(2)Then next thing you do is place a buy stop order 3-5 pips above the high of that breakout candlestick.
(3)Then Place you stop loss. You have a couple of stop loss placement options: the first option is to place it down below the support line which is the best option. The second option is to place it halfway point between the resistance and support line. Another alternative is to place it anywhere from 5-30 pips below the low of the breakout candestick.
(4)Your take profit target should be 3 times what you risked in pips or you can use the height of the pattern (in pips) and calculate your profit target price level.
