Buy signal from double bottom formation

A buy signal from a double bottom formation signals increasing optimism among investors and the beginning of a rising trend.

A double bottom formation is a bottom formation which marks the end of a falling period. The formation consists of two bottoms of about the same depth. The buy signal is triggered when the price breaks upwards above the bottoms.

At the first bottom the investors are pessimistic. There is a falling trend and things are not looking good for the company. As the second bottom is formed, the pessimism is reduced. Many are positively surprised when the stock does not fall below the previous bottom, and thus might not continue the falling trend. When the price breaks above the top between the bottoms, it breaks the resistance located there. Pessimism has been replaced with dawning optimism and a rising trend has begun.

A stock that has triggered a buy signal from a double bottom formation is indicated to rise further, for at least as much as the formation is high.
