Candlestick Patterns | Bearish Evening Star

Bearish Evening Star

This is a three-candlestick pattern signaling a major top reversal. It is composed of a white candlestick followed by a short candlestick, which characteristically gaps up to form a star.
Then we have a third black candlestick whose closing is well into the first session’s white body. This is a meaningful top pattern.

How to identify

Prev 1 of 20 Next
Prev 1 of 20 Next
  1. 1st day is a long white day.
  2. 2nd day gaps above the 1st day’s close.
  3. 3rd day is a long red day.


The 2nd day gaps higher, but trades in a small range. The bearishness of this indecision is confirmed by the lower close of the 3rd day. Look for lower prices.
