How Use Inverted Head & Shoulders

The inverted Head and Shoulders pattern forex strategy is commonly used to trade reversals in a significant down trending currency market. It consists of a left shoulder, head and right shoulder. The neckline connects the left and right shoulder.

The idea is to take a long position if the market closes above the neckline after the right shoulder has been formed with a stop loss a few pips below the right shoulder. The price target should be at least risk-to-reward ratio: 1.5 or better.
