English term or phrase: head-shoulder formation
The index exhibited an inverse head-shoulder formation.

It is about the stock market. Could it be that the shares which were on top of the list last week are now down and the other way around?

Explanation:
if you observe the chart corresponding to a certain security monthly/yearly moving average you can sometimes notice distinct formations head and shoulder, flag , candlestick and many others
they all correspond to buying/selling signals for this security but nobody knows because chart analysis isn't an exact science,lost enough money to know!
imagine a shoulder, the head, the other shoulder and you see the shape
it means that this security value rose for a while and came back to its initial position
not much more i can do for you

Your answer was very helpful! I had absolutely no clue what the term was all about, and you put me on the right track.
The italian term is about the same as in french and english, "figura testa spalle", as I found browsing the net.
Thanks again,
Laura
