What is a diamond bottom chart pattern?
A diamond bottom is a bullish trend reversal chart pattern. It's known to be tough to spot.
The diamond bottom is formed by two juxtaposed symmetrical triangles, which results in the formation of a diamond. The shape looks like a diamond, but usually one tilted to the side. The touches/test of the trendlines used to draw the diamond are very important as well. Prices must touch each trendline once or twice. As mentioned earlier, the diamond bottom is a bullish reversal chart pattern and has 72% chances of breaking out to the upside. A diamond bottom’s price objective is calculated by plotting the maximum height of the diamond at the exit point.
Technical analysis suggest a bullish price continuation to test $1536, as price has broken out to the upside of the pattern.
