BEARISH HANGING MAN: The pattern occurs at the top of a trend or during an uptrend. The name Hanging Man comes from the fact that the candlestick looks somewhat like a hanging man. It is a single candlestick pattern that has a long lower shadow and a small body at or very near the top of its daily trading range. more...
BEARISH BELT HOLD: Bearish Belt Hold is a single candlestick pattern, basically, a Black Opening Marubozu that occurs in an uptrend. It opens on the high of the day, and then prices begin to fall during the day against the overall trend of the market, which eventually stops with a close near the low, leaving a small shadow at the bottom of the candle. If longer bodies characterize the Belt Hold, then the resistance they offer against the trend will be even much stronger. more...
BEARISH ENGULFING: This pattern is characterized by a large black body engulfing a preceding smaller white body, which appears during an uptrend. The black body does not necessarily engulf the shadows of the white body but totally engulfs the body itself. This is an important top reversal signal. more...
BEARISH HARAMI: This pattern consists of a white body and a small black body that is completely inside the range of the white body. If an outline is drawn for the pattern, it looks like a pregnant woman. This is not a coincidence. “Harami” is an old Japanese word for “pregnant”. more...
BEARISH HARAMI CROSS: This is a major bearish reversal pattern, which is even more significant than a regular Bearish Harami. The outline again looks like a pregnant woman, as with the Bearish Harami Pattern. However, now the baby is a Doji. Basically, the pattern is characterized by a white body followed by a Doji that is completely inside the range of the prior white body. more...
BEARISH SHOOTING STAR: This pattern consists of a white body followed by an Inverted Hammer that is characterized by a long upper shadow and a small body. It is similar in shape to the Bullish Inverted Hammer pattern but unlike it, the Shooting Star appears in an uptrend and signals a bearish reversal. more...
BEARISH DARK CLOUD COVER: This is a top reversal pattern with two candlesticks. A white candlestick appears on the first day while an uptrend is in progress. The second day opens at a new high, with a gap up and closes more than halfway into the prior white body, leading to the formation of a strong black candlestick. more...
BEARISH DOJI STAR: This pattern appears in an uptrend and warns that the trend will change. It consists of a white candlestick and a Doji with a gap up at the opening. If the Doji is in the form of an Umbrella the pattern is called “Bearish Dragonfly Doji”. In case of an Inverted Umbrella it is called “Bearish Gravestone Doji”. more...
BEARISH MEETING LINE: This pattern occurs during an uptrend. The first day’s white candlestick is followed by a black candlestick that opens sharply higher and closes at the same level as the prior session’s close. It is similar to the Dark Cloud Cover pattern. However, the amount the second day drops is different. more...
BEARISH DESCENDING HAWK: This pattern is a small white body contained by a prior relatively long white body. It resembles the Harami pattern, except that both bodies are white. more...
BEARISH MATCHING HIGH: This pattern occurs when two white days appear with equal closes in an uptrend. It indicates a top has been reached, even though the new high was tested and there was no follow through, which is indicative of a good resistance price. more...
BEARISH KICKING: This pattern consists firstly of a white Marubozu and then a black Marubozu. After the white Marubozu, the market opens below the prior session’s opening, forming a gap between the two lines. more...
BEARISH ONE BLACK CROW: This pattern appears in an uptrend and consists of a white candlestick and a black candlestick in which the black candlestick opens below the preceding day’s close and closes below its open. The pattern looks similar to the Bearish Harami pattern. The only difference is that the second day closes lower, which stops the engulfing of the black body by the preceding white body. more...
BEARISH EVENING STAR: This is a three-candlestick pattern signaling a major top reversal. It is composed of a white candlestick followed by a short candlestick, which characteristically gaps up to form a star. Then we have a third black candlestick whose closing is well into the first session’s white body. This is a meaningful top pattern. more...
BEARISH EVENING DOJI STAR: This is a three-candlestick pattern signaling a major top reversal. It is composed of a white candlestick followed by a Doji, which characteristically gaps up to form a Doji Star. Then, we have a third black candlestick whose closing is well into the first session’s white real body. This is a meaningful top pattern. more...
BEARISH ABANDONED BABY: This is a three-candlestick pattern signaling a major top reversal. It is exactly the same as the Bearish Evening Doji Star with one important difference. The shadows on the Doji must also gap above the shadows of the first and third days. Its name comes from the second day of the pattern, which floats out on the chart by itself like an abandoned baby of the first and third days. more...
BEARISH TRI STAR: The pattern is a sequence of three Doji. The occurrence of this pattern is extremely rare, so when it occurs it should not be ignored. more...
BEARISH UPSIDE GAP TWO CROWS: This is a three-candlestick bearish reversal pattern. The gap between the black body of the second day and the white body of the first day represents the upside gap. The second and third black days represent the two black crows. more...
BEARISH UNIQUE THREE MOUNTAIN TOP: This is a three-candlestick pattern that somewhat looks like the Bearish Evening Star. It appears in an uptrend. The first day’s white candlestick engulfs the following small white body, which characteristically has a long upper shadow. The pattern is completed by a small black body, which closes above the close of the second day. more...
BEARISH THREE BLACK CROWS: This pattern indicates a strong reversal in the market. It is characterized by three normal or long candlesticks decrementing downwards.

BEARISH THREE OUTSIDE DOWN: This is a confirmed Bearish Engulfing pattern. The first two lines are exactly the same as the Bearish Engulfing pattern and the third day represents its confirmation. more...
BEARISH SQUEEZE ALERT: This is a three-day bearish reversal pattern. It was developed because of the frequent event where prices can break to the downside following this pattern, especially if the pattern is preceded by a strong upside move. more...
BEARISH THREE GAP UPS: This is a four day bearish reversal pattern. It consists of three consecutive days each gapping higher on the open. After Three Gap Ups the market becomes extremely overbought and ready for the reversal of the current uptrend. more...
BEARISH BREAKAWAY: This four candlestick pattern starts with a strong white candlestick. The next three days after the upside gap set consecutively higher prices. However, the last day completely erases the limited price gains of up days and closes inside the gap between the first and second days. This suggests a short term reversal. more...
BEARISH LADDER TOP: This is a five candlestick pattern that starts with three strong white candlesticks. The uptrend continues with the fourth higher close. The next day gaps lower and closes much lower than the previous day or two. This may imply a bearish reversal. more...
