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

Significance: A bullish three methods structure is a continuation pattern, it indicates continuation of the bullish movement.This is a sign that buyers are maintaining the upper hand and simply gaining strength to continue the initial movement.

Note: The three small candlesticks can be of different colours.The important thing is that these three candlesticks remain in the initial range of the first one.

Invalidation: If one of the small candlesticks exceeds the upper boundary of the first candlestick’s range or if the last candlestick does not exceed this level, the bullish three methods pattern is invalidated.
