Head and Shoulders / Reverse Head and Shoulders

The Head and Shoulders Pattern forms a head in the middle with two shoulders on the side. The Head represents the peak and the 2nd shoulder shows that the price is stalling and can’t reach the previous high. This can show a reversal of the price.

Double Bottom / Double Top

A double bottom looks exactly how it sounds it is when the price hits a bottom bounces then retests that bottom and bounces again. It can be found at the end of a downtrend and can signal a bullish reversal. Double Top is the same thing except it forms after an uptrend. A double top is considered a bearish Signal.
