This pattern is a small black body contained by a prior relatively long black body. It resembles the Harami pattern, except that both bodies are black.
Recognition Criteria
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing downtrend.
2. A black body is observed on the first day.
3. On the second day, we again see a black body which is completely engulfed by the body of the first day.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Bullish Homing Pigeon consists of two black candlesticks, in which the first day’s black body engulfs the following black body. The first one has to be a normal or long black candlestick. Either the body tops or the body bottoms of the two candlesticks may be at the same level, but whatever the case, the body of the second day should be smaller than the first.
Trader’s Behavior
The pattern is a signal of disparity. In a market characterized by a downtrend, we first see heavy selling reflected by the black body of the first day. However, a smaller body that appears on the second day points to the diminished power and enthusiasm of the sellers thus suggesting a trend reversal.
Buy/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the last close or the midpoint of the previous black body, whichever is higher. 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.
