A Technical Analysis tool where prices are trending downwards between two parallel lines. The basic trendline is drawn by connecting the tops of the price action and the channel (or return line) which is parallel to it. Channels act as support and resistance levels. The basic trendline (resistance) may be used for opening sell positions in the direction of the downtrend. The channel (or return) line may serve as target for closing a short position.
