Finance Dictionary and Glossary of Investment Terms
A technical analysis term used to describe a chart on which lines that connect tops and bottoms converge towards each other but are both moving in the same direction. Similar to a triangle, except that in a triangle, the trends move in opposite directions, with the tops decreasing and the bottoms increasing. In a wedge, both lines have the same trend (upward or downward) but have different slopes, leading to the convergence. A falling wedge is generally thought to be a rest during a period of upward movements.
A chart pattern composed of two converging lines connecting peaks and troughs. In the case of falling wedges, the pattern indicates temporary interruptions of upward price rallies. In the case of rising wedges, indicates interruptions of a falling price trend.
A technical chart pattern composed of two converging lines connecting a series of peaks and troughs.
