Pattern: reversal
Reliability: high


A White Marubuzo (opens at low and closes at high) is followed by a Black Marubuzo (opens at high and closes at low) that gaps down.


A big black candle that opens at its high and closes at the day's low is bearish regardless of the overall trend. Volume confirmation on the black day solidifies the patter as is a follow up weak day.

The bearish Kicking is similar to the bearish Separating Lines.
