Wedges are defined as the chart design mostly used in the technical analysis. It is created by drawing two different trend lines for the cost behavior of the asset with time. If the trend line converges with time, a slope of high cost trend line crosses the slope of low cost trend line or if aslope of low cost trend line crossesthe slope of high cost trend line, the pattern is known as wedge. The name wedge is offered due to its unique shape. There are mainly two kinds of wedges named as falling and rising wedge. Rising wedges generally appear during the normal downtrend in cost and represents a short term reversal in a trend. On the other hand, the falling wedges generally take place during the normal uptrend and signifya same reversal.
Based on which way the cost moves when it undergoes a breakage through the support and resistance lines made by the design, most of the wedges either generate a powerful purchasing or selling sign. A purchasing signal is created if the costs break the above resistance trend line and selling signal is discovered if the costs disruptthe lower trend line. The explanation of wedge depends on if it is shifting withor against a current trend. If the wedge is shifting with an existing trend, the dealers regard this as a signal that a trend will converse at the conclusion of the wedge. On the contrary, if the wedge moves against the existing trend, it is the sign showing that a trend will move on as it is. The different kinds of wedges are rising wedges and falling wedges.
