BULLISH DOWNSIDE GAP TWO RABBITS
This is a three-candlestick bullish reversal pattern. The gap between the white body of the second day and the black body of the first day represents the downside gap. The white candlesticks of the second and third day represent the rabbits ready to jump out of their burrow.
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing downtrend.
2. A normal or long black candlestick appears on the first day.
3. The second day is a short white candlestick that gaps down.
4. On the last day another white candlestick appears that opens at or below the open, and then closes above the close of the previous day, but still below the close of the first day.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Downside Gap Two Rabbits should start with a normal or long black body. A short white body characterized by a downside body gap follows. The third day is another white body that engulfs the second day. The third day may open at or below the open of the second day. The third day should close below the body limits of the first day, leaving the gap created between the first and the second days still unfilled.
A downtrend has been in place, and the black candlestick adds to the bearishness that is already present. The following day opens lower with a gap down. Prices rise a little bit, and a short white candlestick is observed. The bears are not alarmed by this day, because even though a white body appears, prices fail to close above the close of the previous day. The third day opens at or below the open of the second day, but it rallies throughout the day and closes above the previous close. The two consecutive white bodies show that the strength of the downtrend has been questioned.
Buy/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the last close. Prices should cross above this level for confirmation.
The stop loss level is defined as the last low. Following the BUY, if prices go down instead of going up, and close or make two consecutive daily lows below the stop loss level, while no bearish pattern is detected, then the stop loss is triggered.
