This is a bottom reversal pattern with two candlesticks. A black candlestick appears on the first day while a downtrend is in progress. The second day opens at a new low, with a gap down and closes more than halfway into the prior black body, leading to the formation of a strong white candlestick.
Recognition Criteria
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing downtrend.
2. A black candlestick appears on the first day.
3. A white candlestick opens on the second day with a gap down and closes more than halfway into the body of the first day.
4. The second day fails to close above the body of the first day.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The first day of the Bullish Piercing Line pattern is a normal or long black candlestick. The second day should open well below the close of the first day and close more than halfway into the prior black candlestick’s body. However, the close of the second day must stay inside the body of the first day.
Trader’s Behavior
The market moves in a downtrend. The first black body reinforces this view. The next day the market opens lower via a gap, showing that the bearishness still persists. After this very bearish open, bulls decide to take the lead. The market surges toward the close, prices start to go up resulting in a close way above the previous day’s close. Now the bears are losing their confidence and are reevaluating their short positions. The potential buyers start thinking that new lows may not hold and perhaps it is time to take long 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.
