This is a three-candlestick reversal pattern at the end of the uptrend or a rally. The first candle is a long white body in the direction of the trend “showing off” the buyers’ strength.

The second, is a small black or white candle that may open higher the prior close.

The third candle is a long black body that closes well into the long white body, ideally below fifty percent. It signals the end of the uptrend downtrend.


An overbought reading of your favorite oscillator will add to the validity of the pattern.


The presence of high volume (where available) on the black candle will increase the probability of a reversal to the downside.
I hope you enjoyed it.
