Base

A technical analysis tool. A chart pattern depicting the period when the supply and demand of a certain stock are in relative equilibrium, resulting in a narrow trading range. The merging of the support level and resistance level.

Base

In technical analysis, a situation in which the support level and the resistance level are roughly the same for a given (usually long) period of time. That is, a base occurs when a security trades only in a very narrow range. A base indicates that the supply and demand for a security are at an equilibrium. This means that the security is unlikely to be bullish or bearish in the near future.

The table 2 represents the mean maxillary and mandibular base lengths found in Skeletal Class I, II and III.
This is shown in studies conducted in mouse embryos, where expression of BMP-4 and their antagonists was blocked presenting cell death of mesenchymal cells of the mandibular base causing agnathia (9,40).
These areas were numbered as [6] 1 (retromolar trigon), 2 (oblique line), 3 (alveolar process at level of the of 2nd molar), 4 (midbody at level of the 2nd molar), 5 (mandibular base at level of the 2nd molar), 6 (alveolar process at level of the 1st molar), 7 (midbody at level of the 1st molar), 8 (mandibular base at level of the 1st molar), 9 (alveolar process at level of the 2nd premolar), 10 (midbody at level of the 2nd premolar), 11 (mandibular base at level of the 2nd premolar), 12 (alveolar process at level of the 1st premolar), 13 (midbody at level of the 1st premolar), and 14 (mandibular base at level of the 1st premolar).
Baccetti et al reported an increase of 0.5mm (93.5 to 94.0) in the mean value of maxillary apical base length (Co-A) and an increase of 1.0mm (120.5 to 121.5) in the mean value of mandibular base length (Co-Gn); both termed insignificant.10 Since crowding increases with age regardless of changes in mandibular apical base length, it would make reduced base lengths in childhood a possible indicator for dental crowding in adulthood if a positive correlation existed.
