Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Bullish Three White Soldiers consists of three consecutive normal or long white candlesticks. The last two candlesticks must open in the range of the preceding candlestick and close higher.
The pattern appears in a context where the market stacked at a low price for too long. The market is still testing new lows and it is now approaching a bottom or already at the bottom. Then we see a decisive attempt upward whose evidence is the first white candlestick. Rally continues in the next two days characterized by higher closes. Bears are now forced to cover short positions.
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.
