Double top

Definition:

A term used in technical analysis to refer to the rise of a stock's price, a drop, and then a rise back to the same level as the original rise. The pattern looks like the letter M. In technical analysis, this pattern is interpreted negatively suggesting that there is some resistance level (top of the M) whereby the stock can't go higher.
