  • Trendlines by Melanie F. Bowman and Thom Hartle

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Trendlines by Melanie F. Bowman and Thom Hartle Trendlines are those lines drawn on charts to assist the technician in analyzing a market. A trendline drawn below rising prices is known as a demand, or oversold, line, while a trendline drawn above declining prices is known as a supply, or overbought, line. The direction of the trend is indicated by the ascending trendline or the declining trendline. A penetration of the trendline by price is clear evidence of a change in the trend.

  • Consolidation Patterns by Melanie F. Bowman and Thom Hartle

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Consolidation Patterns by Melanie F. Bowman and Thom Hartle Every price trend, be it stock or commodity, takes a breather from time to time. It is a period of indecision when the pressures of buyers and sellers balance each other out. This stalemate most often sets in after prices have jetted upward or plummetted to the bottom of the chart. It is a sign that prices have moved too rapidly and the momentum has been completely absorbed by the prevailing supply or demand. This change from a trending (advancing or declining) to a consolidating market will usualy be accompanied by a visible increa...
