What is Inverse Head & Shoulders Pattern?

The head and shoulders chart pattern is popular and easy to spot pattern. Patterns are formed due to supply and demand dynamics and decisions traders take in certain situations.


In technical analysis, an Inverse head and shoulders pattern describes a specific chart formation that projects a bullish trend reversal.

An Inverse Head and Shoulders reversal pattern forms after completion of a down trend. In the standard Inverse head and shoulders pattern, we connect the high after the left shoulder with the high created after the head.

A trend line is drawn by connecting these highest points of the two peaks, which is called as “Neckline". This trend line is the most important component of Inverse H&S pattern.
