|A bear flag pattern occurs in downtrends. It is a continuation pattern, which means it signals that a given stock will continue to go down. It consists of an initial downward movement called the "flag pole". This is followed by a consolidation. Followed by a breakout and continued downward movement.
Sometimes you will see a bear flag pattern form and it will be said to be "hugging" a moving average. This generally refers to the flag forming along an upsloping moving average. Usually, significant upsloping moving averages will quickly repel sell-off attempts, but when you see the flag hugging it, with no panic like buying, watch it closely, because it is trying to tell you, that it is very weak, and even a moving average can't turn it up. See the chart above for an example of this.
But always remember that, if you are a beginner, trading the charts is not the easiest job in the world. It will be difficult for you to read the pattern. It's better that you have at least a basic knowledge of technical analysis and real time candlestick charts. The following article will give you a simple explanation of how to trade using this pattern - what should be the target price, volume of trade.

Pinterest is a social photo sharing website that has also been described as an online pin board. In my case, Pinterest ranks 3rd as a source of traffic referral for my website. 1st, is Twitter, followed by Facebook. While I still love to pin images of cutesy Lab puppies, for the most part, I use Pinterest to refer traffic to my website where authors can read my blog, buy my books, or hire me.
FREE service to make updating your social networks a snap!
Most SEO "Guru's" will tell you that Pinterest is useless for search engine optimization because "it is only pictures." I'm about to prove them wrong. Pinterest is one of the most powerful and underutilized forms of social media on the internet. Not only is Pinterest a great platform to enhance your SEO efforts, but it's traffic also has a higher "commercial intent" (meaning people looking to buy) and, therefore, is much "warmer."
Backlinks & Referrals
Every image pinned to a Board has a link back to its original published source. These are valuable backlinks and can provide referral traffic as well. Capitalize on this. Posting your product and service images and videos is a great place to start. However, keep in mind that it's important to avoid being blatantly self-promotional - remember to provide value to your audience by sharing quality content that is relevant to their interests and worth liking, commenting on, and re-pinning.
For this very reason, Get Free Followers encourages its users to do all the above stuffs - by paying them for this. Below article explains how:
- Get paid to Pin on Pinterest
Can Pinterest really make you money? Get Free Followers helps you make some bucks out of Pinterest Pins in 2 ways - directly and in-directly.
Take advantage of keyword targeting
Google now indexes personal Pinterest profiles and private Pinterest boards. Adding keywords to your boards increases the odds of them appearing in a search.
Pinterest is yet another web presence point. Simple as that. Just like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+, Pinterest has gained enough momentum and significance that excluding it any longer may negatively impact your web presence compared to your competitors.
Your competitors are likely using Pinterest on Get Free Followers already. This is a grand enough reason to get started. But better yet, if they are not, you can take advantage of the situation and start building out your Pinterest presence before they do.
Gain better insights into analytics for targeting
Using Pinterest for Social SEO can also help with better report-ing in your ana-lyt-ics. In your analytics report you can see which pieces of Pin-terest con-tent earned a refer-ral click. You'll be able to track people who pro-mote your con-tent, inter-act with them and map out a bet-ter pro-mo-tional strategy with feed-back and ana-lyt-ics stats from them on what kind of con-tent works best.
Pinterest is not going away in the near future.
In December 2011, the site became one of the top 10 largest social networking sites, according to Hitwise data, with 11 million total visits per week - this number increased to 21.5 million visits for the week ending January 28, 2012. According to Experian's 2012 Digital Marketer: Benchmark and Trend Report, Pinterest is now the third most popular social network in the U.S. behind Facebook and Twitter, having surpassed LinkedIn.
Pinterest and High Commercial Intent
I refer to use Pinterest as the "Bridge to Amazon" and here is some data to back that up:
- 88% of people purchase what they pin
- Pinterest has over 70 million users
- The 70 million users have posted a combined total of over 30 million pins
- 80% of pins are re-pins (like re-Tweets)
