This pattern appears in an uptrend and warns that the trend will change. It consists of a white candlestick and a Doji with a gap up at the opening. If the Doji is in the form of an Umbrella the pattern is called “Bearish Dragonfly Doji”. In case of an Inverted Umbrella it is called “Bearish Gravestone Doji”. Here, all these patterns are subsumed under the name: “Bearish Doji Star”, regardless of the shape of the Doji.
Recognition Criteria
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing uptrend.
2. On the first day a white candlestick is observed.
3. Then, we see a Doji on the second day that gaps up.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Bearish Doji Star should start with a normal or long white candlestick. It must continue with a Doji gapping up.
Trader’s Behavior
The market is in an uptrend and a strong white candlestick further confirms it. The next day opens higher with a gap up, and the trading is in a small range. The day closes at the opening price, leading to the formation of a Doji. Bulls were in control during the uptrend 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 upward energy is dissipating. Things are not favorable for the continuation of a bull market.
Sell/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the midpoint of the gap between the Doji and the previous candlestick. 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.
