- Generally speaking, the default setting on the indicator yields a red falling wedge and a blue rising wedge.
- The blue rising wedge formed after an uptrend yields a likely downtrend, while a blue rising wedge formed during a downtrend yields a continuation. Therefore, we can say a blue rising wedge implies a bearish chart.
- The red falling wedge is a bullish chart pattern. So, a red falling wedge formed during an uptrend yields a continuation trend, while when it forms during a downtrend, it is a reversal (uptrend) signal.
