This pattern consists firstly of a white Marubozu and then a black Marubozu. After the white Marubozu, the market opens below the prior session’s opening, forming a gap between the two lines.
Recognition Criteria
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing uptrend.
2. On the first day a white Marubozu (or a white candlestick) is observed.
3. Then we see a black Marubozu (or a black candlestick) on the second day.
4. The second day opens lower with a body gap.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Bearish Kicking ideally should consist of a white Marubozu followed by a black Marubozu with a body gap in between. However, we accept normal or long candlesticks and a null body gap, too. This way, the Bearish Separating Lines Pattern, which is a continuation pattern (that is not covered here), is also included in a modified manner as a reversal pattern.
Trader’s Behavior
The pattern is a strong sign showing that the market is headed downwards. It appears in an uptrend and on the first day a strong white candlestick further confirms the bullishness. The next day prices open below (or at) the previous day’s open causing a gap. This huge gap urges the bears to take action. The market heads down now with a black candlestick.
Sell/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the last close. Prices should cross below this level for confirmation.

The stop loss level is defined as the last high. 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.
