Rising Wedge Pattern

Please see this pattern from babypips school.

Rising Wedge:


[I]In this first example, a rising wedge formed at the end of an uptrend. Notice how price action is forming new highs, but at a much slower pace than when price makes higher lows.

See how price broke down to the downside? That means there are more forex traders desperate to be short than be long!

They pushed the price down to break the trend line, indicating that a downtrend may be in the cards

My Query:

Please see the red colored text above…I don’t understand that part.

slower pace ? where ? I dont see it in the chart …also how does a slower pace can cause a reversal ? This part is bit confusing.

Could you please simplify this concept here ?

Thanks for your time.

I have a video here about this YouTube

They are basicaly saying - look at the pace at how the higher lows form - almost every new candle is a new higher low.

In a healthy trend - the higher highs should form at the same pace.

As the uptrend seems exhousted the buying power is unable to keep up…

Thanks. That was very much charming.

In the chart example above (in addition to what TradeItSimple wrote) most traders would probably wait for a short entry once the breakdown below the ascending support level occurred (second big red candlestick). This candlestick illustrates that more downside should be expected (there are always expectations and sometimes you could see a quick snap-back before the sell-off continues. You should also never rely on one indicator only. I always look for at least three signals before taking my trade.

Hello godzilla!

It means that the lower side of the wedge is sharper than the upper side, which actually generates the wedge. While there are higher tops, there are also even higher lows, which at some point would bring the upper and the lower side of the wedge to an interaction.
