Double Top or Bottom

The double top is one of the most popular patterns in trading. It's a reliable reversal pattern that can be used to enter a bearish position after a bullish trend. It consists of 2 tops at nearly the same level with a valley in between, which creates the neckline. The second top does not break the level of the first top, so the price retested this level and tried to make a higher high, but failed. Price breaking the neckline and closing below it would complete the pattern.

Conservative traders look for additional confirmation and aggressive traders may enter a bearish position from the second top. The target can be estimated by measuring the height of the pattern and projecting this downwards from the neckline. Common stop levels are just above the neckline, halfway between the neckline and the tops or above the tops. The double bottom is the bullish version of this pattern that can form after a downtrend. A popular variation of this setup is the 2618 trade (as taught by Jason Stapleton) with specific rules for the pattern configuration including where to enter and to exit the trade.

EURGBP ready to reverse? My point of view

Hey guys, in front of you you see an hourly chart on EURGBP. The daily outlook of this pair brought me to such lower timeframes: we have a daily resistance here that could push price lower and we're moving in an overbought condition on RSI. This gave me reasons to believe it could be a reversal when i saw the retest failed at the first touch of that previous ...

Looking at the chart, a double top has been formed at the 114 area and a neckline at the 50% Fib level of 108.80ish. It's yet to break this 50% 108.50-80 Fib level and we've been left with what ALMOST looks like a bullish hammer close! Although the candle is I do believe this will go up to test the 38.2% (111.00) fib before visiting 106.50 IF it's breaks ...

Since the beginning of 2017 this market has been on quite a rally. We started the year down around the $1120s price area and have recently tested that $1280-$1300 area a couple of times. You can see from the daily chart that the $1300 psychological level appears to have held for the time being as we put in a nice big double top back in June. We've since seen price ...

Hey guys, this is a pair i've been looking at for the last weeks, and it turned out to be a good setup. Now price managed to break and close below the double top's neckline and that gives and indication of its intention to go lower. As usual, when such cases happen i look for a 618 retracement and sell at market, in according with the 2618 strategy. Stops would go ...

This pair has been bullish up until we made a new structure high and failed to break it on a second test, forming a double top . Price then was able to break the previous low confirming the buyers are running low on energy. A retest and break of the new low would confirm a change in direction. Entering short on a clear rejection of the fibb 618 retracement with ...

Hey guys, this is the hourly chart on EURUSD. If you're wondering why i'm in this chart, that's because EURUSD has hit the superior edge of the consolidation channel that's trapped it for more than 2 years. When i'm in a high location i always look for shorting opportunities, and if we're in a daily structure i'm allowed to use 4hr and 1hr chart in order to find ...
