Head and Shoulders pattern and Neckline

Chart Pattern targets

Neckline of the Head and Shoulders 

Euro US Dollar

triggered the Head and Shoulders pattern with the break of the neckline and the Euro moved lower to the Head and Shoulders target, which is marked on the chart with the 100 % Head and Shoulders target. From there, the market retraced back up to the Head and Shoulders neckline and formed a kind of Wedge pattern / Three Drives pattern before the EURUSD reversed and moved down again (right side of the chart).

Overall, the two hammer candle stick pattern (right side of the hourly chart) and the 61.80 % as well as the 100 % Fibonacci extension levels on the 5 min chart helped us in predicting support and resistance zones.

The first hammer candle  occurred at the consolidation price zone of the prior flat "overnight" consolidation pattern of the 21th of October, which acted now as support. The price up moves after the first and the second hammer candlestick created the kind of Wedge/ Three-Drives pattern and market reversed to the downside after the Euro touched the brown neckline of the Head and Shoulders  at around 1.3080.

As often, market penetrated an important Chart level like the neckline and the high of the recent overnight consolidation zone of the 19th of October to clear the stop orders and trigger the limit breakout orders before reversing strongly (False Breakouts - Market Manipulation).
