This is a major top reversal pattern formed by three candlesticks. The first candlestick is a long green body; the second one is a small real body that may be green or red. It is characteristically marked with a gap in higher direction thus forming a star. In fact, the first two candlesticks form a basic star pattern. Finally we see the red candlestick with a closing price well within first session’s green real body. This pattern clearly shows that the market now turned bearish.
The stars may be more than one, two or even three.
The color of the star and its gaps are not important.
The reliability of this pattern is very high, but still a confirmation in the form of a red candlestick with a lower close or a gap-down is suggested.
