Bearish Abandoned Baby

The HTML to link to this page
 

The bearish abandoned baby is a rarely seen candlestick charting pattern that traders consider reliable at predicting reversals. Three candles comprise the bearish abandoned baby: a long white candle the first day, followed by a doji candle the second day that gaps above the white candle, followed by a black candle the third day that gaps below the doji. If the bearish abandoned baby occurs during or soon after an uptrend, it signals the reversal of the uptrend. Some traders consider the bearish abandoned baby to be more reliable when used with other technical indicators (e.g. MACD, RSI, stochastics, etc.). In foreign exchange markets the bearish abandoned baby pattern manifests itself with a slight difference. Because gaps are very rare in currency trading, the doji element in the forex version of the bearish abandoned baby doesn't require a gap up, and the following black candle is not required to gap down. The counterpart to the bearish abandoned baby is the bullish abandoned baby.
