The Rectangle Bottom pattern forms when the price of a security is stuck in a rangebound motion, bouncing between support and resistance levels. Two horizontal lines (1, 3, 5) and (2, 4) form the pattern. Depending on who gives up first buyers or sellers the price can Breakout in either direction.
This pattern is commonly associated with directionless markets. Usually the pattern performs better when there is a strong downtrend leading into the formation.
If price breaks out from the bottom pattern boundary, day traders and swing traders should trade with a DOWN trend. Consider selling the security short or buying a put option at the downward breakout price level. To identify an exit, calculate the pattern’s height by taking the difference between the support and resistance levels. Then, subtract the pattern height from the breakout price to calculate the target price.
