- Low Base Breakdown Trading Pattern
A Low Base Breakdown is when a price action within the context of a downtrend pauses at the bottom of a down leg and consolidates in a sideways fashion in a narrow range.
The power of a Low Base Breakdown can be greater after a powerful downside move due to the possible increase of overhead resistance.
Low Base Breakdowns can be stronger when the previous swing/pivot low is above a low base due to the possible lack of immediate underlying support.
Technical analysts often seek out Low Base Breakdown patterns for their ability to signal a shift from buying (and/or selling short uncertainty) to selling pressure.
