Double Top & Double Bottom Chart Patterns

What is a Double Top Chart Pattern? A double top visually appears in the shape of the letter “M.” This occurs when a stock reaches its resistance point twice. It also fails to break it, which typically results in the shorting of the stock. The following trend is usually a sharp price decline.

A double bottom chart pattern would be the opposite, appearing as a “W.” A stock can have a substantial price increase when it bounces off its support level twice in a given period. This is usually due to buyers seeing sellers failing to break the support line. Or, instead, investors see that there is a solidified level of support for a particular penny stock.

Head & Shoulders Chart Pattern

A head and shoulders stock chart pattern is a trend reversal pattern. It is shown on a chart by having its highest high sandwiched between two similar previous lower highs. The left side of the head and shoulder shows where the market was in a bullish trend. When the chart reaches the highest high, the market shifts to a bearish direction; hence, this pattern indicates trend reversals.

Golden Cross & Death Cross Chart Patterns

The golden cross chart pattern occurs when a shorter time frame moving average (50-day) crosses above a longer time frame moving average (200-day). This crossing strongly indicates that the chart has probably entered a bullish market.

The opposite action would be known as the death cross. This is where the shorter-term moving average crosses below the longer-term moving average. This is typically a solid bearish market indicator.

Cup & Handle Chart Pattern

A cup and handle pattern is usually visualized as a parabolic “U” shape with a lip to the right of the “U.” This is due to the chart hitting the resistance line the first time, resulting in the stock price decreasing. Then it has a consolidation period followed by a bounce back up to the resistance line again. The chart will then form the lip/handle, a bullish flag or pennant. The stock traditionally rallies past the resistance line for a bullish breakout.

Ascending Triangle & Descending Triangle

An ascending triangle penny stock chart pattern is seen when a stock has practically flat highs while its lows continuously get higher. This happens until the low gets to the point of touching the continuous flat high. Once a chart reaches this point, it typically displays a strong bullish breakout achieving a new high.

A descending triangle pattern would be characterized by having flat lows while the stock’s highs get lower until they meet the flat low. If this happens, the chart will likely reflect a bearish breakdown and establish a new low.
