Three Black Crows

Pattern reversal
Reliability high
 

Identification

Three long black days occur with each successive open being within the body of the previous day and each successive close being below the previous day's and near the day's low.

Psychology

In an uptrend or within a bounce of a downtrend, the three long black candles speak for themselves. If volume accompanies the move, the reliability of the pattern increases significantly.

The bearish Three Black Crows is similar to the bearish Identical Three Crows, bullish Concealing Baby Swallow, bullish Ladder Bottom and bullish Three Stars in the South and could be the beginning of the bearish Three Line Strike.
