The Cup & Handle (C&H) pattern is believed to be one of the most reliable and popular patterns among the trader community. In technical analysis, C&H pattern describes a specific chart formation that projects a bearish-to-bullish trend reversal.
A C&H reversal pattern forms after a downtrend, and its completion marks a trend reversal to an uptrend. In the standard C&H pattern, we connect the high after Cup with the high created after the handle.
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 the C&H pattern.
