The speaker discusses how to calculate the upward price objective of the bull flag once it breaks out. 

The bear flag is exactly the opposite.  It is created during a downtrend; printing a downward thrust in price with a surge in volume.  A consolidation move will follow on light volume and within a narrow range.  The bears will then take over once again and the stock will break down through support.
