Bottom Reversal

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

Bottom reversal is a YardCharts trend inversion bullish pattern and can be expected to take form at market bottoms. It occurs as the result of a downtrend followed by a trading range, which is then followed by a further decline and a sudden reversal of the self- same decline.




  • The market is visibly in a downtrend (see segment 1 in picture A) and appears poised to reach for new lows.
  • At a certain stage during the down phase the market pauses for breath and forms a Trading-Range (see range in picture A).Having defined a clear range the market breaks yet again on the down side, appearing to resume its downtrend (see down break in picture A).
  • However as soon as the down-break looks confirmed on a closing basis/non closing basis, the market unexpectedly turns and climbs back up to close above the higher band of the range. This is delimited by a horizontal line (see reversal in picture A).

    Development of a Bottom Reversal

    The entry point for a bull trade or closing of a short position is at the break (on a closing base) of the range's higher band horizontal delimitation. It is important to note the speed at which the market comes back from the recent market low to above the range, where it closes above its higher band. The down-velocity from range higher band to the market recent low must be lower or equal to the up-velocity from the market low back to up above the range higher delimitation. This translates into the leg, range-high to market low, being composed by a number of bars >= than the leg, market-low to range high. See picture B. If the market has indeed reversed, it should start rising from this point on. The first sign that this pattern is failing is when the market falls back below the range lower base instead of climbing. It is a definite failure if the market takes out the last recent low. Depending on the investor's risk appetite, a stop loss should be placed either below the range lower band or no lower than the market recent low. (See picture B)
