Bearish Engulfing is one of the important bearish reversal patterns. It appears after an uptrend. It's a two candlestick pattern. In this, a large black candle completely engulfs the preceding small white candle. Though it is not necessary for the black candle to engulf the shadows of the previous white candle, it should engulf the entire real body. Heavy volume on second day of the pattern creates higher probability of trend reversal.

Strategy: Confirmation on the third day in the form of a black candle, large gap down or a lower close can be used to initiate short positions.
