Patterns or figures of technical analysis are an aggregation of conditions which outline a certain market condition and determine trader actions. The patterns can be seen easily on graphs and have their own corresponding names (e.g. triangle, double bottom, clean, etc.). After the beginnings of a figure have been recognised, the trader uses this signal to open or close a trade, or to correct an order. There are two types of figures: continuation (outlining the existence of an interim correction of the trend) and inverted (a break in the current trend). All patterns are repeated on the graphs at some point or another since the market is cyclical. Figures are one of traders’ main instruments of analysis since they are universal for different financial markets and time frames.
