How to Trade Double Tops and Double Bottoms

Double Top

A double top is a reversal pattern that is formed after there is an extended move up. The “tops” are peaks which are formed when the price hits a certain level that can’t be broken.

After hitting this level, the price will bounce off it slightly, but then return back to test the level again. If the price bounces off of that level again, then you have a DOUBLE top!

 

Double Top
In the chart above you can see that two peaks or “tops” were formed after a strong move up.

 

Notice how the second top was not able to break the high of the first top. This is a strong sign that a reversal is going to occur because it is telling us that the buying pressure is just about finished.

With the double top, we would place our entry order below the neckline because we are anticipating a reversal of the uptrend.

 

Double Top Breakdown
Wow! We must be psychic or something because we always seem to be right!

 

Looking at the chart you can see that the price breaks the neckline and makes a nice move down. Remember that double tops are a trend reversal formation so you’ll want to look for these after there is a strong uptrend.

You’ll also notice that the drop is approximately the same height as the double top formation. Keep that in mind because that’ll be useful in setting profit targets.

Double Bottom

Huge Double Bottoms

The double bottom is also a trend reversal formation, but this time we are looking to go long instead of short. These formations occur after extended downtrends when two valleys or “bottoms” have been formed.

Double Bottom

You can see from the chart above that after the previous downtrend, the price formed two valleys because it wasn’t able to go below a certain level.

Notice how the second bottom wasn’t able to significantly break the first bottom. This is a sign that the selling pressure is about finished, and that a reversal is about to occur.

 

Double Bottom Breakout
Will you look at that!

 

The price broke the neckline and made a nice move up.

See how the price jumped by almost the same height as that of the double bottom formation?

Remember, just like double tops, double bottoms are also trend reversal formations. You’ll want to look for these after a strong downtrend.

一对的组合

双顶(M顶)

       双顶是市场反转时出现的形态,它是由价格的两次上升所形成。“顶部”是因为价格触及某阻力水平,不能突破而形成的。

       当价格接触某阻力水平后,它稍微的回落,但随后又立刻返回来测试哪阻力水平。如果价格再次回落,那么你就有了 顶!

       在上图中,你可以看到价格在强劲的上升中,形成了两个峰或“顶”。

       注意当第二个顶部无法突破第一个顶部的高度。这是一个强烈的价格反转信号,因为它告诉了我们,买方的力量差不多耗尽了。

       对于双顶,我们可以在颈线的下方,放置空单。因为我们将预期一个上升趋势的逆转。

       哇!我们一定是拥有了特异功能还是什么特别才艺,因为我们似乎总是做对的!

       你可以在图表中看到,价格突破了颈线,并且继续的下移。请记住,双顶是一个趋势反转的形态,所以在强劲的上升趋势时,你需要注意它们的出现。

       您或许还会注意到,开始的下跌高度几乎和双顶形成的高度一样。记住这一点,因为这现象对我们设定止盈目标时有用。

双底(W底)

       双底也是一个趋势反转的形态,但这次我们是寻找做多,而不是做空的机会。这形态发生在下降趋势的末端,当两个低谷或“底部”形成的时候。

       你可以从上面的图表中看到,价格在下降的趋势后,形成了两个底谷,因为它不能跌破某一支撑水平。

       请注意第二个底部不能突破第一个的底部时,这是一个卖方力量快耗尽的信号,同时也是反转即将发生的信号。

       你有看到这变化没!

       这个价格突破破了颈线,并继续的向上移动。

       有注意到价格波动的高度,几乎和双底形成的高度一样吗?

       记得,就像双顶一样,双底也是趋势反转的形态。在强大的跌势中,你要注意它们的出现。
