Bullish counterattack line



Definition: A bullish counterattack line structure is comprised of two Japanese candlesticks. The first is a large bearish candlestick (red) followed by another large bullish candlestick (green) which opens on a bearish gap and closes at the same closing point as the first candlestick.

Characteristic: A bullish counterattack line often forms after a significant drop characterized by several large red Japanese candlesticks.

Significance: A bullish counterattack line is a reversal pattern, it indicates a bullish trend reversal. This reflects exhaustion of bearish forces following the bearish gap and then a buyers’ takeover.

Note: It is important that both candlesticks are large, especially the first one. As for the closing of the candlesticks, they must occur at the same level.

Invalidation: If the next candlestick is not bullish or does not open onto a bullish gap, the bullish counterattack line structure is invalidated.
