Chart Patterns

Double Top

Pattern Description:

The double top is a major reversal pattern that forms after an extended uptrend. The pattern is made up of two consecutive peaks that are roughly equal, with a moderate trough in-between. As illustrated below, a double top consists of two well-defined, sharp peaks at approximately the same price level. A double top occurs when prices are in an uptrend. Prices rise to a resistance level, retreat, return to the resistance level again before declining. The two peaks should be distinct and sharp. The pattern is complete when prices decline below the lowest low in the formation. The lowest low is called the confirmation point.

The German Dax index surged over one percent today driven by positive earnings results as well as January's PMI data and its impact on the future ECB's monetary policy.

While the short term technical outlook remains bullish with higher highs and higher lows, the monthly chart displays worrying signals, in particular bearish divergence on the 14 month relative strength indicator. The 161.80 percent Fibonacci upside projection target from the 2003 lows, suggests a push towards the 17500 area before a change in the current bullish market perception makes its presence felt.
