Triple Bottom Pattern: explained

The triple bottom usually appears at the end of a bearish trend and when it is confirmed, it indicates a change of trend to an uptrend. It differs from the double bottom in that the bottom is formed by three quotation peaks instead of two.

What happens is that the price does not have enough strength to continue downwards and break the level of the two previous lows, both of the same price levels. The triple bottom, once formed, is a significant trend indicator.

For the formation of a triple bottom, the price must break the price level corresponding to the highs that are between the three peaks, that is, line B. Once this level is broken, the price should rise by a distance equal to that which separates lines A and B. It is very important to wait for the confirmation (break of line B) since otherwise, a bearish trend continuation flag could be forming.
