or Geometric Pattern: One of a series of recognized patterns that is formed by joining the price points on a chart. In essence, a geometric pattern gives rise to the presumption that at least one half of a trend has occurred, allowing the trader to take advantage of the other half of the market move and giving hope that the trend will continue further by reason of a chain of patterns. The geometric patterns comprise the head and shoulders top, reverse head and shoulders, double top, triple top, double bottom triple bottom, triangles, pennants and wedges.
A distinctive formation created on a chart by the up and down movement of prices. For example, head and shoulders, triangle, and double top.
