A pause in the fall.The chart below shows a falling megaphone pattern where the rallies are getting bigger.Such a pattern normally has bullish implications and should breakout on the upside after making a third touch of the support line.This would be in line with reaching the rising wedge target shown above.
The descending megaphone is a rare formation can be recognized by the successively higher highs and lower lows, which form after a downward move. Usually, two higher highs between three lower lows form the pattern, which is completed when prices break above the second higher high and do not fall below it.
The pattern is completed when, usually on the third upswing within the pattern, prices break above the prior high but fail to fall below this level again.
