Market is characterized by downtrend. 2. We see three consecutive long white candlesticks. 3. Each candlestick closes at a new high. 4. The opening of each candlestick is within the body of the previous day. 5. Each consecutive day closes near or at its highs. Explanation: The Bullish Three White Soldiers Pattern appears in a context where the market stayed at a low price for too long. The market is still falling down and it is now approaching a bottom or already at bottom. Then we see a decisive attempt upward shown by the long white candlestick. Rally continues in the next two days characterized by higher closes. Bears are now forced to cover short positions. Important Factors: The opening prices of the second and third days can be anywhere within the previous day's body. However, it is better to see the opening prices above the middle of the previous day's body. If the white candlesticks are very extended, one should be cautious about an overbought market. The reliability of this pattern is very high, but still a confirmation in the form of a white candlestick with a higher close or a gap-up is suggested.
