Blow-off Top

The HTML to link to this page
 

A blow-off top refers to an extremely fast spike up in a stock's price, followed by an extremely fast and severe drop in price. A blow-off top may be found on an intra-day chart, a daily chart, or even a weekly or monthly chart in some cases. A blow-off top may be found on individual stock charts or on the charts of indices. A blow-off top is generally seen by chartists and technical analysts as an indicator of future market actions, although different technical analysts may view the significance of a blow-off top differently. For many technical analysts a blow-off top indicates a major resistance level; and while many technical analysts may consider a down-trend likely following a blow-off top, a subsequent penetration above the level of the blow-off top would be considered extremely bullish.
