AUD/NZD Topping Out in Double Top Formation

AUD/NZD Topping Out in Double Top Formation

One month after another AUD/NZD @ H4 pattern had led my trade to a take-profit, albeit in a trend-continuation setup, the Aussie vs. Kiwi pair has now formed a reversal pattern that promises an attractive entry should the actual breakout occur. Being a four-hour timeframe pattern, this double top didn’t take too much time to develop — just a little over a week — yet it is almost a picture-perfect example of a classic double formation. It shows a definite preceding uptrend, almost equal tops, and the neckline resting just where the final bullish wave began in the original uptrend.

The chart below shows the neckline and the two tops marked with the yellow lines. You can see a pending entry marked with the cyan line (placed at 10% of the pattern’s height below the neckline). I will set my take-profit to the level marked with the green line. It is placed at 100% of the pattern’s height below the neckline. I will set my stop-loss to the high of the breakout candle or to the high of the preceding one if the breakout candle is trading mostly below the neckline. As the double top is an intrinsically bearish pattern, bullish developments should be ignored (unless they lead to the formation of an ascending triangle). Clicking the chart will open its larger version:

Update 2020-08-27: The short trade entry triggered today at 00:29 GMT. The opening price was 1.09168 with stop-loss at 1.09497 and take-profit at 1.08144. A minor pull-back ensued almost immediately:
