The price falling below the support line (plus certain deviation is possible) is considered a sell signal as the level at which the asset has been repeatedly bought is finally overcome.
Following a bearish rectangle pattern formation the price is generally believed to fall at least to its target level, calculated as follows:
T = S – H, Where:
T – target price;
S – support level (pattern’s low);
H – pattern’s height (distance between support and resistance).
