Strong Bearish Engulfing on NZD/USD Daily Chart

Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern is the strongest bearish pattern that candlesticks form. Of course the strength of the patterns that form depends on a few important factors.

First, the size of the bearish candlestick’s body that has engulfed the previous candlestick(s) is very important. The bigger the bearish candlestick body, the stronger the signal and the higher probability of a strong down movement.

The second factor which is not related to the candlesticks directly, but is the factor that we always consider, is the Bollinger Upper Band breakout. Therefore, both the bearish and also the previous candlesticks, have to break out of the upper band. The stronger the Bollinger Upper Band breakout, the stronger the signal and the higher probability of a strong down move.

If candlesticks’ bodies break above the Bollinger Upper Band, not just the shadows, then the pattern is much stronger.

This factor emphasizes on the bulls (buyers) exhaustion and their decision in selling their positions to collect their profit. It is an important factor that boosts your success rate.
