Saucers typically occur over a period of three weeks, but they can even be observed over several years.

Important Characteristics of a Saucer Top

  1. - It represents a long consolidation period that turns from a bullish bias to a bearish bias.
  2. - Volume usually follows the inverse of the price pattern. As the price begins to go up, volume tends to decrease. Once the top of the price pattern starts its downtrend turn, volume tends to increase.
  3. - It is not confirmed until there is a breakout to the downside below the resistance level, which is the beginning of the upward movement at the start of the pattern.
