Price has bounced off a resistance area which was a former support, the level is also 0.618 of the prior impulse. Clear price rejection with the long wicks and massive bearish engulfing. A double top pattern has also formed on the 4H.
trigger for the mentioned idea, what you want to see: clean impulse + choppy correction
RTDTSD set-up is an exception – trend is arguably down with the AB=CD upward channel broken + a double top at an area of resistance gives value and a sell signal. RTDTSD (rounding top double top spike down) is a pattern that has happened many times in the past, notably on AUD/USD and SILVER.
Stop sell order triggered with stop loss above the wick where the level was rejected.
