Flags imply that the market cannot decide whether to break up or down. Once the flag is broken by the price, there may be a substantial move in the direction of the break. Flags can be used to interpret large breaks in price. If the price breaks through the flag to the downside, there may be a large move down.
Similarly, if the price breaks through the flag to the upside, there may be a large move up. We may use these to help identify trend or to confirm a Gartley or butterfly pattern.
