  1. A consolidation pattern (pennant, flag, rectangle,…) is a very useful tool used to find good entry areas in the market. From a psychological point of view, these tools point to an ongoing debate between bulls and bears that will most likely be won by the bullish or bearish consensus that preceded the pattern.

Also, the opposite camp is realizing he’s wrong and tries to sell their open trades. Once the pattern is confirmed, the wait-and-see traders jump in on the move. To conclude, when a bullish/bearish consolidation pattern is validated, three categories of investors will join their efforts to buy/sell the market, making it stronger.
