Bullish reversals are a popular tool and strategy for technical traders and investors as they offer the potential for significant gains. The trick is finding a stock that is reversing that is worth investing in. Reversals are a tricky business and often go unconfirmed. The textbook definition of stock market reversal is a change in direction, which could easily be from a downtrend to a sideways consolidation or from a downtrend to an uptrend.
Think about this: how many stocks in a downtrend form a Vee-Bottom? Not many because that kind of action is very rare. The stock will likely fall into the pattern of hitting bottom, forming a bottoming pattern, breaking a critical resistance point, and then confirming prior resistance as support. In this scenario, the market will clearly show its intention and stock prices will increase. If this action coincides with a bullish investment scenario, as with the 5 tech stocks on this list, capital gains are more a matter of when than if.
