English term or phrase: head and shoulders pattern
Definition from Investopedia:
A head and shoulders pattern is a chart formation that appears as a baseline with three peaks, the outside two are close in height and the middle is highest. In technical analysis, a head and shoulders pattern describes a specific chart formation that predicts a bullish-to-bearish trend reversal. The head and shoulders pattern is believed to be one of the most reliable trend reversal patterns. It is one of several top patterns that signal, with varying degrees of accuracy, that an upward trend is nearing its end.

Example sentence(s):
  • Once a trader knows how to identify the standard and inverse head and shoulders patterns, it’s relatively easy to apply it to technical analysis in both forex and equity markets. Daily FX
  • Before making any trades, it’s important to let the Head and Shoulders pattern fully form itself. If the pattern is still not complete, you shouldn’t assume that it will fully develop and make trades upon that belief. The market is volatile; it always changes at a rapid pace. Capital
  • Second, the head and shoulders pattern is found when there’s a change in trend direction. If you know what you’re doing, you can potentially find trade setups that meet solid risk/reward criteria. StocksToTrade
