This pattern consists of three consecutive black candlesticks which have consecutively lower closes and higher lows in a slowly deteriorating downtrend.
Recognition Criteria
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing downtrend.
2. A black candlestick with almost no upper shadow and a long lower shadow appears on the first day.
3. The next day is another black candlestick closing below the previous day’s close and having an opening in the range of the previous day’s body. However, it has a higher low.
4. The last day is a small black Marubozu with a higher low.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The first candlestick should be a normal or long black candlestick with a long lower shadow. The following black candlestick 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 and their lower shadows should get shorter.
Trader’s Behavior
The Bullish Three Stars in the South reflects a slowly deteriorating downtrend, which is characterized by diminishing daily price ranges and consecutively higher lows. Buying enthusiasm is reflected by the long lower shadow of the first day. The next day opens at a higher level, trades lower, but its low is not lower than the previous day’s low. This second day also closes off its low. Then we see a small black Marubozu, which is engulfed by the previous day’s range on the third day. Higher lows cause uneasiness among shorts. The last day of the pattern reflects market indecision with hardly any price movement. Shorts are now ready to cover positions if they see anything in the upside. Everything points out that the tide is slowly turning towards the bulls’ side.
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.
