This Secondary Signal, The Three White Soldiers, is one of many strong reversal patterns.

Three White Soldiers

Description

The Three White Soldiers (also known as The Advancing Three White Soldiers) is a healthy market reversal pattern. It consists of three white candles, the second and third candles opening lower than the previous close but closing at a new high.

 

Criteria

  1. Each consecutive long candle closes with a higher open.
  2. The second and third candlesticks open in the previous day's body.
  3. Each day should close very near its high for the day
  4. The opens should be within the top half of the previous day's body.

 

Pattern Psychology

After a downtrend or a flat period, the presence of this formation suggests a healthy rally will occur. The strength of this formation consists of the fact that each day, the lower open suggests that sellers are present. By the end of each day, the buying has overcome the early sellers. This represents that a healthy continued rally has selling occurring as it is happening. As in any rally, too much buying with little selling can be dangerous. This Bullish reversal pattern needs no confirmation.
