EUR/JPY Is Possibly Reversing with a Double Top

December 6, 2020 (Last updated on December 8, 2020) by

The euro is probably facing the end to its long-term uptrend against the Japanese yen with the current consolidation phase that took a shape of a double top chart pattern. Spanning through the entire first week of December, both tops are almost perfectly uniform and well pronounced. Of course, the question still remains as to whether the exchange rate will break the neckline.

You can see the two peaks marked with the top yellow line. The bottom yellow line marks the necklines of the pattern. I am setting my pending entry to where the cyan line is (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. I will skip a bullish breakout from this pattern unless it first forms an ascending triangle.
