Spikes

Jack Schwager covers spikes in his book, Technical Analysis.

A Spike High is identified by:

  • a High sharply above the days on either side,
  • a Close near the day's Low, and
  • a strong preceding rally.

The more extreme each of these conditions are, the greater the likelihood of a reversal.

A Spike Low has:

  • a Low sharply below the days on either side,
  • a Close near the Day's High
  • and must be preceded by a strong decline.
