Wealthy VC – Technical Trade Alert:

In technical analysis, Bull Flags are continuation chart patterns that, following a brief period of consolidation, signal that the previous uptrend will resume once the pattern has been completed. Bull Flags are typically found after a sharp upward price movement, with the consolidation period creating the pattern’s flag shape.

The Bull Flag gets its name because it resembles the shape of a flag on a pole. The pattern consists of downward-sloping upper and lower trendlines that form the shape of a rectangle or flag. The flagpole represents the sharp price movement that preceded the consolidation period, while the flag represents consolidation. The flagpole is the distance between the breakout above the previous resistance and the peak of the recent sharp rise before the current consolidation period.

Bull Flags are a nice pattern to work with since there is a simple formula we can use to calculate a stock’s potential price target.

The formula is as follows:

  • Projected Breakout Price + Length of Flagpole = Potential Price Target

Based on a projected breakout price of $185 and a flagpole length of $43.23, we can calculate a potential price target of $228.23 on AAPL stock, which implies a potential near-term gain of +33.91%.

See our calculations below.

AAPL Price Target Calculation:

  • AAPL Price: $170.43
  • Length of Flagpole: $198.23 (sharp rise peak) – $155 (previous resistance break) = $43.23
  • Projected Breakout Price: $185
  • Price Target: $185 (projected breakout price) + $43.23 (flagpole) = $228.23
  • Potential ROI: +33.91%
