Head & Shoulder Pattern in ES

  1. don't worry our plunge protection team is on the job, this pattern most likely wont play out, but just wanted to point it out. A down equity market ha! not a chance, this is perfect were our government supports our supposedly free markets. Just buy buy buy buy. Welcome to perfect, were risk is nonexistent.
  2. I think both shoulders should line up and base at the same levels to invalidate the pattern, but of course I'm not sure.

    Base?...Is it the wright word? :confused:
  3. ehm....I meant 'validate'.
  4. If you look very closely at your chart you will notice that the bottom right half of the "head" and the still developing "right shoulder" actually form a sort of mini, inverted head and shoulder pattern.

    With that said, H&S, inverted or not, is entirely dependent on volume. If the volume construct is not right, the probabilities of the pattern completing as expected drop substantially.
