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.

BTCUSD: Outside Bar Offers Hint Of Bullish Reversal To 15K?

BTCUSD update: Outside bar like candle forms within the 10988 to 8656 support zone, and more specifically bounces off the 9683 lower boundary of the reversal zone. Just like in the other markets, this is a place to be looking for longs for swing and position trades. Funny how people criticize and ridicule TA, meanwhile levels that I have projected weeks ago are ...

Large Cap Crypto Poised for Adam and Eve Double Bottom Reversal

Short term play. Noticed almost every major cap is looking to make an A&E double bottom. There is also the makings of a inverse head and shoulders. Set buys at the 0.618 retracement from the peak bottom we saw yesterday. I think ETHUSD will run up to $1300, BTCUSD to $15,000 this week or next. Long term I am still bearish on the market, but we will see as this ...

I know it's silly looking, but it seems like BTC peaks twice before correcting down in the RSI 20ish area. If the past is any indication of what will happen here, we should see new highs in the next month or so. This may touch 8000s. I am going to buy there! GLTA

ETHUSD: New Lows Into Support Zone. Attractive Investment.

ETHUSD update: Dramatic retrace takes this market back to the 872 upper boundary of a larger magnitude support zone much faster than expected. Price is now in an area that offers better opportunity on the long side, but price stability needs to present itself. My long at 1311 got stopped out at 1243 which protected me from 400 more points of pain. What you are ...
