The death cross and the golden cross are technical indicators that traders use in attempt to predict bearish and bullish market momentum, respectively. Both are breakout patterns formed when a short-term moving average either crosses above (in the case of a golden cross) or crosses below (in the case of a death cross) a long-term moving average.
The two technical indicators both have three distinct phases. In the death cross, the first phase coincides with an upward trend coming to an end as buying interest dies out. However, the golden cross involves a downward trend dying out as selling interest deteriorates and then ceases to exist.
