A head and shoulders chart, top formation, is a chart of a stock’s movement that resembles the outline of a person. As the stock first moves up, then flattens out forming the first shoulder, and then moves up again for a brief time, then down (forming the head), then flattens out to form the other shoulder the pattern is formed. It is a bearish chart, indicating the reversal of an uptrend.
