This pattern consists of three consecutive black candlesticks with consecutively lower closes in a downtrend. It is the compliment of the Bearish Advanced Block Pattern.
Recognition Criteria
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing downtrend.
2. A black candlestick appears on the first day.
3. The next two days are black candlesticks with each closing below the previous day’s close and having an opening in the range of the previous day’s body.
4. The last two days have long lower shadows.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The first candlestick of a Bullish Descent Block should be a normal or long black candlestick. The following consecutive black candlesticks must open within the range of the previous day’s body, and close below the previous day’s close. The bodies of the three black candlesticks should get shorter, while the lower shadows get longer.
Trader’s Behavior
A strong black candlestick is followed by another black candlestick closing below the previous close. As two consecutive black candlesticks occur, the downtrend seems secure and the bears are content. The secure downtrend attracts more bears, and the third day is again a black candlestick that is closing below the previous day’s close. With three black candlesticks, it looks as though bears rule over the market; however there are signs of weaknesses. Firstly, the bodies get shorter and shorter, showing that indecision is increasing. Secondly, each day opens within the range of the previous day’s body. Thirdly, the lower shadows are getting longer. While the second and the third days are closing lower, the distance between closes are getting shorter. This means that the downtrend is losing strength and that short traders must be cautious.
Buy/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the midpoint of the last black body. 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.
