consolidation pattern

Certain chart patterns (examples are the pennant, the flag and the broadening formations) that indicate a market is consolidating its position. Consolidation periods are thought to indicate periods of indecision among traders for the direction of a pair as traders take profit more often on shorter ranges. Consolidation patterns are important to recognize because frequently a pair can explosively leave a pattern, leading to solid profits for the well-positioned trader with good money management.
