The pattern is a sequence of three Doji. The occurrence of this pattern is extremely rare so when it occurs it should not be ignored.
1. The market is characterized by a prevailing uptrend.
2. Three consecutive Doji are seen.
3. The second day gaps above the first and the third.
Pattern Requirements and Flexibility
The Bearish Three Star consists of three consecutive Doji in which the second Doji gaps above the two other Doji. It is sufficient that the gap is a body gap. There is no need for a gap between shadows.
In the case of a Bearish Tri Star we have a market which is in an uptrend for a long time. However the weakening trend is probably indicated by the bodies that are becoming smaller. The first doji is a matter of concern. The second Doji clearly indicates that market is losing its direction. Finally the third doji warns that the uptrend is over. This pattern indicates too much indecision leading to the reversal of positions.
Sell/Stop Loss Levels
The confirmation level is defined as the last close. Prices should cross below this level for confirmation. The stop loss level is defined as the higher of the last two highs. Following the bearish signal if prices go up instead of going down and close or make two consecutive daily highs above the stop loss level while no bullish pattern is detected then the stop loss is triggered.
