The first is a large bullish candlestick (green) followed by a small bearish candlestick (red) with a closing just below the closing level of the previous candlestick. The second candlestick must be significantly smaller than the first.

Characteristic: A bullish irikubi often forms after a significant increase characterized by several large green Japanese candlesticks.

Significance: The in neck pattern (bullish Irikubi) is a continuation pattern, it indicates a continuation of the bullish movement. The small red candlestick indicates a hedge on long positions.

Note: For the structure to be validated, the next candlestick must be bullish and close above the opening price of the small bearish candlestick (red).

Invalidation: If the lowest point of the small bearish candlestick surmounts the next candlestick, the structure can be considered invalidated.
