This pattern is a small white body contained by a prior relatively long white body. It resembles the Harami pattern, except that both bodies are white.
Recognition Criteria
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing uptrend.
2. A white body is observed on the first day.
3. On the second day, we again see a white body which is completely engulfed by the body of the first day.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Bearish Descending hawk consists of two white candlesticks, in which the first day’s white body engulfs the following white body. The first one has to be a normal or long white 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
This pattern is a signal of disparity. In a market characterized by uptrend, we first see heavy buying indicated by the white body of the first day. However, a smaller body that appears on the second day points to the diminished power and enthusiasm of the buyers thus suggesting a trend reversal.
Sell/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the last close or the midpoint of the previous white body, whichever is lower. 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.
