bearish three line strike candlestick


Bearish Three Line Strike

Direction: Bearish

Type: Continuation

Reliability: Weak

After an established downtrend three long red days in a row continue this move, each closing lower than the previous day

Day-four is blue candle that closes near the open of the first day

So long as the previous downtrend is an established one, candlestick analysts view this formation as a sign that the downtrend may still continue.

The first three days serve as a fairly clear bearish move. Up to day-three in fact we have a Three Black Crows formation which is a strong bearish signal. One day of rally that only goes up to the open price of the patterns start is considered to be more sellers covering their positions than any true sign of a reversal. Thus traders will watch for short entry opportunities to come.

Since the overall signal is fairly weak, most will want confirmation in the form of bearish price action the next day.
