    In forex trading, a double bottom pattern is used to identify bullish reversals in a currency pair's price. When the price of a currency pair reaches a low point and bounces back up, only to return to that same low point again before finally reversing and moving upwards, this pattern is formed.

    In the double bottom pattern, there are two bottoms that are roughly equal in height, with a peak in between them. This peak is often referred to as the "neckline" of the pattern, and it is drawn across the highs between the two bottoms.

    Traders are looking for a break above the neckline to confirm the pattern and a signal to take a long position on the currency pair, with a stop loss placed below the second bottom. It is possible to calculate the target price by measuring a distance between the neckline and the bottom of the pattern and projecting that distance upwards from the neckline.

    It's important to note that while the double bottom pattern can be a reliable indicator of a bullish reversal, it isn't a guarantee of future price movements, so traders should always follow their trading plan and use proper risk management techniques when executing trades based on chart patterns.
