SPX-Double-Top-Bearish-Pattern
This is a 1 year chart of the SPX developing a Bearish pattern.

 Why the Double Top pattern is Bearish

A Double Top pattern is Bearish because traders have provided resistance at that level before, and when they see the same levels again, they step in with strong resistance again. For the double top to be established, there needs to be validation, which is provided by an analysis of a series of either Higher Highs and Higher Lows, or in the case of a reversal pattern, it will be Lower Highs and Lower Lows. The first validation came around May 15th 2019, when the first Lower High was established, and now a Lower Low is in the process of being established. The current levels are key because if these don’t hold, we could see a lot more downside.
