Market Bottom

The lowest level of support in price for a security, index, or market over a given time frame. The security, index, or market is highly unlikely to go below the bottom; if it does so, it may cause panic selling. During a prolonged bear market, when a market is dropping more or less continuously for a long time, investors often question when the market will find bottom, which means that they wish to know when the market will begin to rise again, or at least stabilize.
