What is Double Bottom Pattern?
The Double Bottom pattern is a bullish reversal pattern made up of two consecutive troughs that are roughly equal, with a moderate peak in-between.
The double bottom looks like the letter "W". The twice-touched low is considered a support level. The double bottom pattern always follows a major or minor downtrend in a particular security, and signals reversal and the beginning of a potential uptrend.
A double bottom reversal pattern forms after a down trend, and its completion marks a trend reversal to up trend. Double bottom pattern is an integral part of technical analysis, but successful traders combine these techniques with technical indicators and other forms of technical analysis to maximize their odds of success.
This trend line is the most important component of double bottom pattern, a sustained trade above resistance line is considered as a breakout.
