BEARISH DELIBERATION BLOCK
This pattern consists of three consecutive white candlesticks with consecutively higher closes in an uptrend.
1. Market is characterized by a prevailing uptrend.
2. A white candlestick appears on the first day.
3. The next day is another white candlestick, which opens within the range of the previous day’s body and closes above the previous day’s close.
4. The final day is a short white candlestick, a spinning top or a Doji that gaps up above the second day.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The first two white candlesticks appearing in the Bearish Deliberation Block should not be short. The second day should open at or lower than the close of the first day, while the close of the second day should be at or above the close of the first day. The gapping up final candlestick can be a short white candlestick or a Doji.
The two consecutive white candlesticks secure the uptrend, and the bulls are content with the situation. The secure uptrend attracts more buyers, and the third day opens above the close of the preceding day. The third day is also a white day, making the bulls even more confident about the continuation of the uptrend. A closer look, however, reveals that the uptrend is giving signs of weaknesses. The range of each body is getting smaller day-by-day and the third day gaps up making a star, which shows indecision.
Sell/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the midpoint between the last close and the body top of the second day. Prices should cross below this level for confirmation.
The stop loss level is defined as the higher of the last two highs. 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.
