Bullish kicking



Definition: A bullish kicking structure is comprised of two Japanese candlesticks. The first is a bearish marubozu (red) followed by a bullish marubozu (green) with an opening occurring in a large bullish gap. The opening price of the second candlestick must be higher than the opening price of the first candlestick.

Characteristic: A bullish kicking often occurs after a significant drop characterized by several large red Japanese candlesticks.

Significance
: A bullish kicking is a reversal pattern indicating a bullish trend reversal. It reflects an effect of total surprise and aggressive opposition.

Note: A bullish kicking is a very powerful pattern. The trend preceding the pattern’s formation is of little importance.

Invalidation
: If the next candlestick is not bullish or does not open on a new bullish gap, the bullish kicking is invalidated.
