This five candlestick pattern starts with a strong black candlestick. The next three days after the downside gap set consecutively lower prices. However, the last day completely erases the limited losses of down days and closes inside the gap between the first and second days. This suggests a short term reversal.
Recognition Criteria
1. The color of the first strong black day represents the current downtrend.
2. The second day is also black and the body gaps in the direction of the trend.
3. The third and fourth days continue the trend direction. It is better if the third day is white, but it may also be black as the fourth day.
4. The fifth day is a white one that closes inside the gap formed between the first two days.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The first black candlestick of the Bullish Breakaway should not be short. However, the following three black candlesticks after the gap can be short, while the third candlestick in the middle can be white, too. The last white day should close inside the gap but should not close the gap.
Trader’s Behavior
The downtrend has accelerated with a big gap and then starts to fizzle, but still moves in the same direction. The slow deterioration of the downtrend is quite evident. Finally, an upward burst completely reverses the previous three days’ price action. What causes the reversal implication is the fact that the gap has not been filled. A short term reversal has taken place, but still a confirmation may be necessary.
Buy/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the last close. Prices should cross above this level for confirmation.

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