V-formation

(redirected from V-Formations)

V-Formation

In technical analysis, a situation in which a security steeply declines in price, and then steeply recovers. A V-formation may be bullish, but many analysts believe that a V-formation is risky because of the possibility that another steep decline could occur.

V-formation

In technical analysis, a chart formation caused by a sharp extended decline followed by a sudden upward movement. Some chartists believe a V-formation is not generally a good indicator of a major change of direction in a security's price. These people believe that a major price reversal requires a period of testing low prices with succeeding price advances and declines. Only after this consolidation phase takes place can a new bull movement be assured.

Analysis and Detection in V-Formations with Outliers (1)
For example, Nathan and Barbosa (2008) propose a model based on rules which allow the generation of V-formations according to determined parameters.
However, his model is not appropriate to V-formations as it is shown in (Moreno et al.
2013) is extended in order to identify V-formations considering the possible presence of outliers.
Besides, some incipient elements which lead to model V-formations not necessarily aligned are presented.
Consequently, the previous section conditions are extended in order to identify and consider this type of formations as V-formations.
A model by (Nathan and Barbosa, 2008) was used, which was conceived specifically to generate V-formations in NetLogo.
If that wasn't enough, thousands of geese, ducks and other migratory birds flew in V-formations to their northern summer homes.
Squadrons of them flew over, honking dramatically in their impressive V-formations.
