The Eiffel tower pattern is essentially a fast price rise followed by fast price fall, effectively mirroring the price rise to the price fall like an Eiffel tower. Price of this pattern starts off choppy, but making new highs gradually. When market participants realize the path of least resistance is up, price develops into a new phase of exponential growth. This high price level become unsustainable and fall until it retraces all of its gain. The pattern was first coined by Chris Kimble, a professional hedge fund/portfolio manage as an example during periods of a bubble. A pattern like this is purely speculative, I think this quote fits perfectly.
