Why pay attention to head and shoulders?

Head and Shoulders is one of the most reliable patterns in trading. You could find the stats on this - I've long forgotten them.

Many H&S pattern fail and you have to be prepared to take controlled affordable losses when engaging them. But when they do fall in your favour, they could be big earners.

As always, these patterns do not 'predict' - they create probabilities. For every estimate on probability in one direction there is a residual probability that it won't work for you. That's where the stop-loss comes in.

Strang things can happen with these - based on experience.
1 - the pattern fails completely.
2 - a second right shoulder develops (usually in bullish markets).
3 - price stalls in a range for a long time.

Comment: Where we are now. Possibly a second right shoulder may develop. This is something I mentioned before, that happens in raging bull markets.

@StewySongs, I agree. Support and resistance are sometimes okay. But I've noticed in the last year that they're working less well as a trading principle.
