The psychological background of double ceilings and double floors

The proper functioning of this strategy is probably due to psychological background that hides behind its formation. While the double zeros may be somewhat more “esoteric” double ceiling / floor throws a very clear message market sentiment: there is not enough purchasing power / selling for that price again exceed last maximum / minimum marking, and that’s always a sign of trend exhaustion.

As is well known, the trend price movement is never done in a straight line, but the price will oscillate in what are called impulses and setbacks, but with the difference that in a stable trend each new price momentum exceeds the maximum or at least marked by the previous pulse. That is why when an impulsive movement stagnates in the same maximum or minimum that marked the previous pulse, jump all alarms that indicate that this trend may be losing strength and therefore coming to an end.
