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. The Dark Cloud Cover’s second day closes below the midpoint of the first day’s body, while the second day the Bearish Meeting Line closes the same as the first day. Consequently, the Dark Cloud Cover is a more significant top reversal. Nonetheless, the Bearish Meeting Line should also be respected.
Recognition Criteria
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing uptrend.
2. On the first day a white candlestick is observed.
3. Then, we see a black candlestick on the second day.
4. The closing prices are the same or almost the same on both days.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Bearish Meeting Line consists of two candlesticks, first a white candlestick then a black candlestick, both not short. The closing prices of both days should be the same or very close.
Trader’s Behavior
The occurrence of this pattern reflects a stalemate between bulls and bears. The market is in an uptrend when a strong white candlestick is formed, which further supports the trend. The next day opens sharply higher causing the bulls to feel more confident. Then the bears start a counterattack pushing prices down and leading to a close equal to (or very close to) the previous close. The uptrend is now breached.
Sell/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the last close. Prices should cross below this level for confirmation.

The stop loss level is defined as the last high. Following the bearish signal, if prices go up instead of going down, and close or make two consecutive daily highs above the stop loss level, while no bullish pattern is detected, then the stop loss is triggered.
