The high tight flag chart pattern is an extremely rare, bullish formation. Stocks that have amazing fundamentals generally form these. Despite the already big move before the base emerges, the break outs from this pattern are explosive.
This pattern forms after a stock makes a gain of 100% or more in only 4 to 8 weeks and consolidates while pulling back less than 25% over the course of 3 to 5 weeks.
This pattern is so powerful because even though the stock has already gained more than 100%, doubling in value, the pullback is extremely shallow which tells us there is nobody interested in selling.
Generally when a stock moves over 100% in a few weeks there is massive profit taking which you don’t see in this pattern. Instead of aggressive selling institutions are accumulating at these higher levels.
