Pennant

A technical chart formation resembling a pointed flag. This pattern is formed as a stock or market tags successive highs and lows narrowing over time, thus creating the point of the "flag". As the trading range narrows, the volume level tends to decrease. Once the pattern is completely formed, the stock will often make a significant breakout on strong volume.
