Intraday Trading Chart Patterns

Intraday trading is heavily dependent on technical analysis and intraday chart patterns. Because buying and selling occur on the same day, there is no time to hold positions in intraday trading. As a result, the fundamental analysis does not provide much assistance to intraday traders.

An intraday trader seeks to capitalise on the momentum and put bets for a limited time.

Here is all the information about intraday chart patterns in detail.

What is Intraday Trading Chart Patterns?

Charts in the stock market depict how prices have moved in the past and how they are moving in the present. Traders utilize this information to forecast how the price will move in the future. Candlestick, Renko, Line, Bar, Heikin Ashi, and more types of charts are available. 

Different traders use varied kinds of charts for trading, but the candlestick chart is the most commonly used.

Many patterns form on candlestick charts based on how the price has moved recently. These patterns describe price behaviour and tell a story. First, we'll see what each pattern represents.

Candlestick Patterns for Intraday Trading

Some of the candlestick pattern for intraday trading are:

a) Flag

The flag stock chart pattern is a sloping rectangle with parallel support and resistance lines until there is a breakout. The breakout frequently occurs in the opposite direction of the trendlines, indicating a reversal pattern.

b) Ascending Triangle

An ascending Triangle is a bullish 'continuation' pattern that indicates a possible breakout where the triangle lines converge.

To create this pattern, draw a horizontal line (the resistance line) on the resistance points and an ascending line (the uptrend line) along the support points.

c) Symmetrical Triangle

In the case of symmetrical triangles, two trend lines begin to intersect, indicating a breakout in either direction.

The support line is drawn with an upward trend, while the resistance line is drawn with a downward trend. Although the breakout can occur in either direction, it frequently follows the market's overall trend.

d) Pennant

It is another chart useful for intraday trading. Pennants are depicted by two lines that intersect at a predetermined place.

They are frequently produced following sharp upward or downward moves in which traders pause and the price consolidates before the trend resumes in the same direction.

e) Wedge

It is one of the intraday chart patterns characterized by a tightening price movement with the support and resistance lines; it might be rising or dropping.

Unlike the Triangle, the wedge lacks a horizontal trend line and is formed by either two upward or two downward trend lines.

The price is expected to break through the resistance in the case of a downward wedge, and the price is expected to break through the support in the case of an upward wedge. Because the breakout is opposite the general trend, the wedge is a reversal pattern.

f) Head and Shoulders

The head and shoulders pattern attempts to forecast a market change from bull to bear.

First, all three levels collapse back to the same support level, which is characterized by a huge peak with two lower peaks on either side. The trend will then most likely break down in a downward direction.

g) Double Top Pattern

A double top is a bearish is known as a reversal pattern that is one of the most common chart patterns among traders due to its frequency of occurrence.

It can be identified at any moment and is simple to spot. To detect this pattern, a trader just needs to find two equal market tops.  

h) Double Bottom Pattern

This is one of the Intraday Chart Patterns, which is the inverse of the Double Top pattern, and usually appears near the end of a decline. A bullish reversal pattern is the Double Bottom.

Because of their similar traits, they are very easy to recognize. The Double Bottom pattern is generated when the price makes two equal lows, indicating the market's negative momentum is weakening.

i) Rectangle

Rectangle patterns, such as the Flag and Pennant patterns, are very popular in trending markets. They reflect a period of market consolidation that happens between two parallel horizontal levels.
