Tip: You should combine signals from several indicators before concluding a reversal.
Get into the right attitude towards TA.
TA can not tell you what the market will do. But it can tell you what you should do. Such as if you enter in a certain direction at a certain price level and after a certain type of price action, your position will probably be good for you. You will know when you are putting this theory into action when you stop saying, “Price is here, I must hit Sell now before its too late!” and start saying, “I will set a Sell order here, so that if price goes there, the order will get me a short position”.
There’s a section here called marketmilk it has many indicators that kind of say when something maaaay be due for a reversal! It’s usually timing though so sometimes it’s delayed.

Traders scan their indicators and trawl over what the great traders have said about seeing reversal signs - but still there’s no Holy Grail.
Another way is to look at what the great traders of the last 50 years did not say.

reversal normally comes when you just about to tp but haven’t
I would add that reversal signs are pretty good signals to exit on, but not good to enter on.
Added to which the forex markets are so often not strongly and consistently trending that there is a reversal of some sort on every pair every 7 days. This flatters the apparent performance of reversal signals.
Double Tops and Double Bottoms: Double tops occur when the price reaches a peak twice at approximately the same level before reversing downward.
I’m always worried that these discussions on trend reversal patterns ignore the key point.
Are we talking about reversals out of a trend and into the opposite trend, or reversal out of weakness into the underlying existing trend?
By price action, there are lot of signs ranging from candlestick formations to patterns, volatility and price level etc
