Rounding Bottoms Technical Analysis

In a rounding bottoms technical analysis, the chart’s pattern will resemble a cup without its handle. Because rounding bottom patterns develop gradually and over a long period of time, there is usually no confirmation trigger evident. The lack of a trigger event and the fact that both the downward and upward trends occur slowly and gradually with no significant moves in either direction often makes a stock with a rounding bottom pattern difficult to trade.
