Non-Standard Bullish Pennant on GBP/JPY Daily Chart

November 3, 2019 (Last updated on November 23, 2019) by

The bullish pennant pattern that has formed on the daily timeframe of GBP/JPY chart doesn’t look like a classical example of a bullish pennant. The pole of the pattern consists of several candles and lasts for almost as long as the pennant part. I believe that this doesn’t invalidate the trade setup offered by this formation. More important to me seems the fact that the pennant occurs inside an uptrend.

The chart below shows the pattern marked with the yellow lines. My potential entry level is marked with the cyan line. It is placed at 10% of the pole’s length above the upper border. My potential take-profit level is shown with the green line, which is located at 100% of the pole’s length above the upper border. My stop-loss will be set to the lowest point of the pennant part of the pattern. I will ignore bearish breakouts from this bullish pennant.
