Stock prices are either in a follow through trending phase or in a consolidation phase. During a strong trending period, a stock will proceed from one price level to another with very little interruption. During a consolidation period a stock will move in both directions without producing any meaningful or sustained price change.
During periods of consolidation prices tend to form a recognizable chart pattern which helps us to determine the direction and magnitude of the next substantial trend with some degree of accuracy.
Because price action and chart patterns are a result of human interaction, it is possible to find those repeating chart patterns in different markets, in different time frames such as on daily, weekly and monthly scale and in different time periods.
Chart patterns form over varying duration. On a weekly scale chart, a 3 month-long consolidation pattern can exist within say a year-long chart pattern. These shorter and longer duration chart patterns can have the same boundary lines and a breakout from the short-term chart pattern can also complete the long-term chart pattern.
In such cases the short-term chart pattern is called a launching pattern. Identifying a launching pattern can be important. Breakout from such consolidation periods will not only trigger a chart pattern breakout signal in the short/medium-term but also result in a long-term shift in the direction of the trend.

In late 2016, a Swedish company FORMPIPE formed a 16 month-long ascending triangle as part of a decade long symmetrical triangle. Tech Charts identified this chart pattern development as a launching pattern. Breakout completed both chart patterns and resulted in a strong trend period. Ascending triangle is a bullish continuation chart pattern.
Over the past few weeks similar price action was identified on a South Korean company LG DISPLAY and the opportunity was featured in the Global Equity Markets reports. The 9 month-long ascending triangle is acting as a launching pattern. Breakout from the 9 month-long bullish continuation chart pattern is taking place at the same level from the decade-long symmetrical triangle.
LG DISPLAY (034220.KS)
LG DISPLAY is listed on the NYSE via depository receipts. Price chart of the New York Stock Exchange listing also completed a well-defined chart symmetrical triangle chart pattern. Members were alerted to this opportunity as well.
