INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Double Bottom'

The double bottom looks like the letter "W". The twice touched low is considered a support level.

Most technical analysts believe that the advance off of the first bottom should be 10-20%. The second bottom should form within 3-4% of the previous low, and volume on the ensuing advance should increase.
