Head and Shoulders

The Head and Shoulders pattern is an accurate reversal pattern that can be used to enter a bearish position after a bullish trend. It consists of 3 tops with a higher high in the middle, called the head. The line connecting the 2 valleys is the neckline. The height of the last top can be higher than the first, but not higher than the head. In other words, the price tried to make a higher high, but failed. The closer the 2 outer tops are to the same price, the more accurate the pattern.

If the price breaks the neckline and closes below it, the pattern has completed. Conservative traders may look for additional confirmation. The target can be estimated by measuring the height of the pattern (from the neckline to the head) and projecting this downwards. Common stop levels are above the neckline or above the right shoulder. The Inverse Head and Shoulders is the bullish version of this pattern that can form after a downtrend. TradingView has a smart drawing tool that allows users to visually identify this pattern on a chart.

EURUSD fell out - is that a head and shoulders?

EURUSD fell off a ledge today. In retrospect, I think there was possibly a head and shoulders in there. If so, this could get even more interesting. I'd be delighted to hear from H&S experts out there.

ON THE LOOKOUT FOR A BREAKOUT - INVERSE H&S

I've had my eye on EURNZD for a while now, but more recently in the last week or two. The Euro has over the last week (actually since April 2017, but what's 12 months between ticks) staged quite the bullish run and the charge seems to be in full momentum (I should know on account of being on the wrong side of it recently and donating some to the market). Most ...

BTC - Daily iH&S idea

BTC looks to be in the middle of forming an inverted head and shoulders on the daily timeframe. The drive it needs could come from the iH&S being formed on the 4HR https://uk.tradingview.com/chart/BTCUSD/IBRfsOIQ-BTCUSD-4HR-iH-S/ Think we'll be going down to 8k-7.8k USD before the big push to 11.7K in which the iH&S will be comfirmed and then be expected to ...

Neckline confirmed for a potential inverse Head & Shoulders on the BTC 4HR view. Daily also seem to be forming a iH&S, just needs to complete the trip from the head back to the neckline to make it valid. This could be the drive it needs to form the daily one successfully. Fun times :)

Stochastics have crossed down on the 4h, there's still plenty of room for a move down until it reaches an oversold region. There's hidden bearish divergence on the RSI, a spike in sell volume (as a trend starter) and an obvious H&S pattern that could take us below the 7k region.

Bitcoin appears to be forming a Head and Shoulders pattern on the 4h TF. If the Right Shoulder does manage to finish forming then a break below the neckline would trigger a sell off down to the 8k level. Short biased for now.

On rejection of a major Trendline resistance, XLM has formed the left shoulder and head of a Head and Shoulders pattern on the 4h TF. The right shoulder has already reached its peak (assuming trendline holds as resistance) and on break of the neckline we should see a downward move of a minimum of 12% on XLM trading against Bitcoin. For now keep an eye for a move ...
