Those that spotted this pattern had the opportunity to make two exceptional trades - a short in early summer and a recent long position three weeks ago, as shown on chart. The shorting opportunity came at the upper trendline touch where the candlesticks were dubious with their long upper shadows (tails) while short-term stochastics and longer term CCI (commodity channel index) both flashed overbought signals. The patient shorter was handsomely rewarded with a short at $10 and a cover around $5 over 10 weeks.
