Bottom End Sweep

Yard Charts technical analysis software is able to discover a Bottom end Sweep chart pattern

Bottom End Sweep is a YardCharts market reversal bullish pattern comparable to an imaginary right-angled triangle. It is made up of two sides that meet at a 90° angle, which are linked by a hypotenuse. In Yard's technical analysis we make the following associations:




  • Long side:  The horizontal line drawn by uniting two or more, approximately equal market highs in a given temporal segment. (See line 1, in picture A);

  • Short side: The imaginary vertical line with a length that is equal to the distance from the horizontal line to the market low formed under the horizontal. (See line 2, in picture A);

  • Hypotenuse: The imaginary sloping line that results from linking the market lows corresponding to the bounces formed under the horizontal. (See line 3, in picture A).



The ideal model of Bottom End Sweep

  • The bounces underneath the horizontal line must be at least two, preferably three, and their lows are in descending order. (See Picture B)
  • Any of these bounces are preferable when the number of bars corresponding to the down-move from the horizontal to the bounce low is greater than or equal to the number of bars that make the up-move from the bounce low back to the horizontal line. This means that, within the bounces, the down velocity is slower than the up velocity. Not all bounces in every triangle will develop exactly as such, but it is advisable that the last and closing bounce present this characteristic.
  • The formation of a Bottom End Sweep is confirmed when the market has performed at least 2 bounces under the horizontal and satisfies the following two conditions:
    • As soon as the market breaks the horizontal from below, the market rises up to a minimum distance (50% of the short side) above the horizontal, peak 1 in picture B.
    • As soon as the level above the horizontal, peak 1 has been touched, the market retraces back within a close range to the horizontal. This retracement represents the entrypoint. See picture B.
    • A stop loss is advisable within a certain percentage point below the blue line, depending on how deep is the triangle and the trader's risk appetite. In any case, if the market falls back below the last bounce low, a stop loss is paramount as this means the market has failed the pattern.
