Dark Cloud Cover Candlestick Chart Pattern

The Dark-cloud Cover pattern is a bearish trend reversal or top reversal pattern that appears in an uptrend and signals a potential weakness in the uptrend. It is a two-candlestick pattern and is the antithesis of the piercing pattern. As it is a bearish trend reversal pattern, the dark-cloud cover pattern is only valid if it appears in an uptrend. The first candlestick in this pattern must be a light candlestick with a large real body.



 The following candlestick should be a dark candlestick that opens above the high of the first candlestick but closes well into the real body of the first candlestick, signaling a change in sentiment. The pattern is more reliable if the second candlestick closes below the middle of the first candlestick, with the deeper the penetration of the second candlestick the more significant it becomes. It also becomes more significant if the two candlesticks that form the pattern are Marubozu candlesticks with no upper or lower shadows.


1. The greater the degree of penetration of the red real body's close into the prior green real body, the greater the chance for a top. If the red real body covers the prior day's entire green body, a bearish engulfing pattern would occur. The dark-cloud cover's red real body only gets partially into the white body. Think of the dark-cloud cover as a partial solar eclipse blocking out part of the sun (that is,
covers only part of the prior white body). 

The bearish engulfing pattern can be viewed as a total solar eclipse blocking out the entire sun (that is, covers the entire green body). A bearish engulfing pattern,
consequently, is a more meaningful top reversal. If a long, green real body closes above the highs of the dark-cloud cover, or the bearish engulfing pattern, it could presage another rally.


2. During a prolonged uptrend, if there is a strong green day which opens on its low (that is, a shaven bottom) and closes on its high (that is, a shaven head) and the next day reveals a long red real body day, opening on its high and closing on its low, then a shaven head and shaven bottom black day have occurred. 


3. If the second body (that is, the red body) of the dark-cloud cover opens above a major resistance level and then fails, it would prove the bulls were unable to take control of the market. 


4. if, on the opening of the second day there is very heavy volume, a buying blow off could have occurred. For example, heavy volume at a new opening high could mean that many new buyers have decided to jump aboard ship. Then the market sells offs. It probably won't be too long before this multitude of new longs (and old longs who have ridden the uptrend) realize that the ship they jumped onto is the
Titanic. For futures traders, very high opening interest can be another warning.

  1. Do you think that to dramatically improve your success rate you have to read tons of thick books, buy expensive software and spend countless hours of learning more about Forex?

    What I'm going to share with you is something very EASY to use and very POWERFUL at the same time.

    Let me give you an EXAMPLE:

    Imagine you trade a system that makes 50% winning trades, but another 50% are losing trades. If you increase your odds of winning by only 20%, that would make 70% winning trades and 30% losing trades.

    Well, HOW TO accomplish that?

    Just pick the best trending pair at the current time and simply follow the trend! I have found ONE INCREDIBLE TOOL that continuously scans the Forex market and picks the most reliable trending pairs for you.

    By taking signals in the direction of a strong trend you would REDUCE UNNECESSARY LOSSES and increase the odds of winning. You need to know "how well" the market is trending to avoid very short-term trends.

    STOP hunting the market for every potential trade. Pick only the best trending pairs and time frames and DO NOT take any trading signals in the choppy market (unless you know exactly what you are doing).

    Successful traders keep it simple and this is the way how the pros made fortunes in the markets - by trading less and making more.

    To increase the profitability of any system or robot you are currently using, check out this easy and powerful ultimate solution:
