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.
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing uptrend.
2. A white body is observed on the first day.
3. The black body that is formed on the second day opens lower than the first day’s close and closes lower than the first day’s open.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Bearish One Black Crow consists of a white candlestick followed by a black candlestick. The length of both candlesticks should not be short. The second day opens below the close of the preceding day and the close is below the opening price of the first day.
An uptrend is in progress and the strong white candlestick seen on the first day increases the bullishness that is already present. As the second day opens lower than the close, the bulls are alarmed. Prices fall to the point, where the close drops below the previous day’s open. The uptrend is damaged. If prices keep on falling on the following days, a major reversal of the trend takes place.
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.
