Take a look at the 1-year chart of Callaway (NYSE: ELY) below with my added notations:
1-year chart of Callaway (NYSE: ELY)
Over the last 10 months ELY has created a key level of support at $7.50 (blue) and that $7.50 level is also the “neckline” support for the stock’s head and shoulders (H&S) reversal pattern. Above the neckline you will notice the H&S pattern itself (gray).
Remember, patterns such as an H&S need to confirm to have the meaning that they imply. Confirmation of the H&S occurred when ELY broke below its $7.50 support.

The Tale of the Tape: ELY has confirmed a head & shoulders pattern. A short trade could be entered anywhere near $7.50 with a stop placed above that level. A break back above $7.50 could negate the forecast for a move lower, thus a long position could be entered instead.
