Below the neckline - bullish atekubi



Definition: A bullish atekubi (line below the neckline) is a structure comprised of two Japanese candlesticks. The first is a large bullish candlestick (green) followed by a small bearish candlestick (red) with a closing just above the closing level of the previous candlestick. The second candlestick must be significantly smaller than the first.

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

Significance: A line under the neckline (bullish atekubi) is a continuation pattern, it indicates a continuation of the bullish movement.

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

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