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

Significance: A bullish island reversal is a reversal pattern, it indicates a bullish trend reversal. It reflects overconfidence on the part of sellers that allows buyers to take control.

Note: It is a very rare but powerful pattern. The island can be more or less large (one or more candlesticks)

Invalidation: If the bearish or bullish gap is filled on a wick, the bullish island reversal structure is invalidated.
