Chart Analysis and Chart Pattern Recognition – Ascending Triangle Pattern
|The ascending triangle pattern is a variation of symmetrical triangle formation that has a flat

waves. At least 3 – 4 subwaves are required to perform
a reliable pattern screening. We use a minimal required number of sub
waves for an earlier pattern recognition screener. On the other
hand, a pattern formed with more subwaves is more
