1. It is formed by three consecutive long black candlesticks.
2. Each day closes at a new low.
3. Each consecutive candle in this pattern opens within the body of the previous candle.
4. Each day closes at or near its low.
The market has either reached its top or has been at a high price level for some time. The price starts moving downward sharply when a long black day occurs on the chart. During the next two days, you will see a further decline in prices caused by massive selling and profit booking. This type of price dynamic does not favor the bulls.
It would be best to see the body of the first candlestick in this pattern under the previous white day’s high. This scenario would add to the bearish nature of the pattern.
The Three Black Crows pattern transforms into a long black candlestick, fully in line with the model’s bearishness.
A more rigid related model is the Identical Three Crows pattern.
