Bearish Engulfing

This pattern signals
a potential trend...
How to identify...Similar pattern(s)...
  1. The color of the 1st day's body reflects the trend, however could be a doji.

  2. The 2nd day's real body engulfs the 1st day's body.
The Bearish Engulfing pattern is the start of the Bearish Three Outside Down candlestick pattern.

If not much volume occurs on the 1st day of the Bearish Engulfing pattern compared to the 2nd day, then this increases the strength of the pattern. The 2nd day opens above the close of the 1st day, however quickly sells off to finally close below the open of the 1st day. This damages the spirits of the longs and brings into question the bull trend which prompts additional selling in the coming days.
