BULLISH UNIQUE THREE RIVER BOTTOM
This is a three-candlestick pattern that somewhat looks like the Bullish Morning Star. It appears in a downtrend. The first day’s black candlestick engulfs the following small black body, which characteristically has a long lower shadow. The pattern is completed by a small white body, which closes below the close of the second day.
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing downtrend.
2. A black candlestick is observed on the first day.
3. The second day is a black body that opens higher, trades at a new low, and then closes near the high.
4. The third day is a short white day below the second day.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Bullish Unique Three River Bottom should start with a strong black candlestick, and a short black candlestick that opens higher must follow it. The second day must trade at a new low, causing a long lower shadow that reaches lower than the previous day’s low. The body of this candlestick should be engulfed by the first day. The final and the third day of the pattern must be a short white body that is below the second day’s body.
The market is testing new lows and it produces a black day. The following day unexpectedly opens higher, however the bears show their strength and cause new lows to be reached during the day. The day closes near its open, leading to the formation of a short black candlestick. The strength of the bears is in question and indecision prevails in the market. On the next day, a small white body appears and ensures that the bears are losing strength.
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 lower of the last two lows. 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.
