Hi guys, I'm a big fan of H&S pattern and would like to know where can i find info on how should the volume picture look like on LS/Head/RS in case of regular and inverse H&S patterns? By picture I mean how should the volume be distributed? Should it be max on the head e.g.? e.t.c.
May be some one can suggest some reversal volume patterns to study on?

I don't know the answer to your question, as I don't trade patterns like that.

But, you might check with Suri Duddella or consider buying his book if you don't already own it. It is considered the holy bible of chart patterns.

bomberone1, stats can be found in the encyclopedia of chart patterns by Bulkowski. I'm not sure if there is an indicator for spotting this pattern. Also check this resource - some useful stuff: Head and Shoulders Price Pattern - this is the way i like to look at it - not texbook style.

regards,
snu.
