Characteristic: A bullish gapping play follows a period of hesitation (small candlesticks) after a period of significant increase characterized by several large green Japanese candlesticks. Small candlesticks before the gap must remain in the upper area of the last large candlestick.

Significance: A bullish gapping play is a continuation pattern, it is a strong signal that the bullish movement will continue.

Note: A bullish gapping play proves to be stronger if the candlestick before the gap is red.

Invalidation: If the next candlestick is not bullish or does not open on a bullish gap, the bullish gapping play structure is invalidated.

Bearish gapping play



Definition: A bearish gapping play structure is comprised of three Japanese candlesticks. The first two are bearish (red) and small, which indicates hesitation. The opening of the third candlestick occurs on a bearish gap. This one must be large.
