We analyze the signature type of a cascade of periodic orbits associated to period doubling renormalizable maps of the two dimensional disk. The signature is a sequence of rational numbers which describes how periodic orbits turn each other and is invariant by topological conjugacies that preserve orientation. We prove that in the class of area contracting maps the signature cannot be a monotone sequence. This explains why classical examples of infinitely renormalizable maps due to Bowen, Franks and Young cannot be achieved by smooth dissipative maps showing that there are topological obstructions to realize infinitely renormalizable maps in the area contracting case.
