Dark Cloud Cover
Dark-cloud cover is a bearish reversal signal. In an uptrend, a long clear (white) candlestick is followed by a long solid (black) candlestick that opens above the prior clear (white) candlestick's high. The second candlestick must close well into the first candlestickĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s real body. The large solid (black) candle casts a dark cloud over the preceding bullish trend. To create this pattern, the following candle must open at a new high and must close below the midpoint of the body of the preceding candle.
