Counterattack candlestick design – an example

It is much easier to understand the significance of the pattern when you can see it in action. Let's take a closer look. This is the bullish counterattack pattern.

This figure is worth a look. The bullish candle has a white colour, while the bearish candle has a black color. This shows that prices are in a downtrend. The bears hold a strong grip on the market, and they are constantly pushing prices down. This is evident in the first black-colored candle. The high selling pressure on the trend causes the white candle to form a gap down and continue falling until it reaches its lowest point. The bears give up and the bulls flood into the market, causing the price to rise significantly. The bulls' strong demand means that the session ends positive at the close of the previous day.

This opens with a "gap up" expecting that the price will rise. The bulls give up and the bears take over. The market is then flooded by sellers, which drives down the price. The session ends at the close of the previous day due to the intense selling pressure by the bears.
