Three Inside Up
Three Inside Up is a bullish reversal pattern. The pattern is made up of three candlesticks of which the first candlestick is bullish and has a long real body. The second candlestick in this pattern is a small bullish candlestick that remains contained within the real body of the first candlestick. The third and the final candlestick in this pattern is bearish and has a big real body that closes above the first candlestick. The pattern is considered stronger if the third candlestick closes significantly higher than the high of the first candlestick. The third candlestick completes the pattern and indicates a possible shift in the ongoing downtrend.
