This pattern appears in a downtrend and warns that the trend will change. It consists of a black candlestick and a Doji with a downward gap at the opening. When the Doji is in the form of an Umbrella the pattern is called “Bullish Dragonfly Doji”, and in case of an Inverted Umbrella it is called “Bullish Gravestone Doji”. Here, all these patterns are subsumed, under the name: “Bullish Doji Star”, regardless of the shape of the Doji.
Recognition Criteria
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing downtrend.
2. On the first day a black candlestick is observed.
3. Then we see a Doji on the second day that gaps down.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Bullish Doji Star should start with a normal or long black candlestick. It must continue with a Doji gapping down.
Trader’s Behavior
The market is in a downtrend and a strong black candlestick further confirms it. The next day opens lower with a gap down, and the trading is in a small range. The day closes at the opening price, causing the formation of a Doji. Bears were in control during the downtrend but now a change is implied by the appearance of a Doji Star, which shows that the bulls and the bears are in equilibrium. The downward energy is dissipating. Things are not favorable for the continuation of a bear market.
Buy/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the midpoint of the gap between the Doji and the previous candlestick. 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.
