The Broadening Bottom pattern is formed when the price of a pair progressively makes higher highs (2, 4) and lower lows (1, 3, 5) following two widening trend lines. The price is expected to move up or down past the pattern depending on which line is broken first. What distinguishes a Broadening Bottom from a Broadening Top is that the price of the pair is declining prior to entering the pattern formation.
This type of formation happens when volatility is high or increasing, and when the price of a pair is moving with high volatility but little or no direction. It potentially indicates growing investor nervousness and indecisiveness.
Once the price breaks out from the top pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders should trade with an UP trend. Consider buying a pair or a call option at the upward breakout price/entry point. To identify an exit, compute the target price by adding the pattern height (H on the chart) to the breakout price. The pattern height is difference between the pattern’s highest high and its lowest low.
