It is a bullish reversal pattern. It occurs in a downtrend and is comprised of two candlesticks. The first candlestick is a long black candle, accompanied by high volume. The next candlestick makes a lower low, but then rallies to close above the midpoint of the first candlestick, but not above the opening of that candle. This pattern is one of the first signs that a potential bullish reversal is in play.

Strategy: Traders should wait for the high of the first candlestick to be exceeded prior to taking a long position. Stoploss can be placed below the low of the first candlestick. The more the second candle closes above the mid-point of the first candlestick, the greater the odds of a successful pattern. The potential buyers start thinking that new lows may not hold and perhaps it is time to take long positions.
