Double Bottom Chart Patterns

A Double Bottom pattern in forex is a bullish reversal trading pattern and looks like “W”. The first bottom forms immediately after a strong bearish trend, price then retraces to the neckline. Once it hits this level, the momentum will shift to bearish once again to form the second top. When it bounces back to the neckline again, it then forms a double Bottom.
