Characteristic: A bullish separating line often forms after a significant increase characterized by several large Japanese bullish (green) candlesticks.

Significance: A bullish separating line 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 green candlestick’s closing level.

Invalidation: If the lowest point of the bullish candlestick (green) surmounts the next candlestick, the structure can be considered invalidated.
