This is a five candlestick pattern that starts with three black candlesticks. The market signals a bottom reversal with the change in the color at the fourth candlestick. The next day gaps higher and makes a strong upward move, confirming the reversal.
Recognition Criteria
1. The pattern begins with a black candlestick.
2. The next two days are also black days, and each one closes lower than the previous day’s close.
3. The third day gaps down and opens below the close of the second day.
4. The fourth day is white.
4. The fifth day is a strong white with an open forming (causing) a gap above the previous day’s close.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The first three days of the Bullish After Bottom Gap Up are strong black candlesticks with consecutive lower opens and lower closes. The third black should gap down. The fourth day is a white candlestick that opens higher and covers the gap. The fifth day is a strong white candlestick that makes a body gap with the fourth day. There are no short candlesticks in this pattern.
Trader’s Behavior
The first two black days and the gapping down third black day create a market with an extended downtrend. The fourth day is a strong white day that shows there might finally be some weakness in the decline. The fifth day gaps up and closes near its highs creating a strong white candlestick. It now appears that the market overextended itself to the downside and a reversal of the prior trend has begun.
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 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.
