Overview of 2 Bar Reversal Indicator

Candlestick patterns are an essential part of trading. Because they are simple, candlestick patterns are very popular. If you want to be able to read technical analysis better, reading patterns is one of the first steps. A candlestick typically has a body, an outer shadow, and a lower shadow. It also contains four elements: the opening, close, high, and low price movements per calendar day.

The lower protrusion of a body is the lowest, while the vertical line that runs downwards is the highest. The high, on the other hand, represents the vertical lines that run from the top of a body. The shape of the body will change depending on whether the open and close lines are higher than one another. There are many patterns for candles, but the most important is the two-bar reversal pattern.

When talking about reversals, the 2 bar reversal or double candle reverse pattern is one of the most popular. A two-bar reversal is a situation in which the market makes a strong move in one direction and then follows it up with another move on the opposite side.

What does a two-bar reversal pattern resemble?

A two-bar reversal is a pair of candlesticks or trend bars with identically-sized bodies, but in opposite directions. A two-bar reversal pattern that doesn't get lost within a congestion area and stands out is the strongest and clearest.

A bullish or bearish 2 bar reversal pattern could be created. A bearish two-bar reversal would require the first bar to rise and close at or near the session's highs. The second bar must open higher and close lower, rejecting previous highs. If the current bar's highest point is higher than the previous bar, but the bar closes lower than the bar that closed before it, a bearish bar reversal occurs. Bullish bar reversal occurs when today's low is lower than that of the previous day and today's closing is higher than that of the earlier day.

A bearish market move is indicated when a bullish trend bar is followed by a bearish trend bar at the top. This two-bar reversal indicates a bullish price action when a bearish bar is followed by a bullish bar at the bottom.

Understanding the two-bar reversal pattern is key to understanding price action formations. Understanding price action reversals is essential if you want to become a price action expert trader. You can see when the market is closing by looking for reversal patterns.

- The presence and reversal of the two bars indicates that there is a tug-of war between bulls and bears, i.e. between buyers and sellers.

These are some things to remember when trading the 2-bar reversal :

A two-bar reversal pattern indicates that market sentiment is being rejected and the trend has changed in the opposite direction.

This pattern is more valid when it appears at either the top or bottom of a trend.

A two-bar reversal, whether bullish or bearish, is also indicative of an engulfing trend. It is a sign that the market is very positive. A two-bar engulfing candlestick signalizes a market reversal. The second candle is bigger than the first, so it will engulf the length of the first bar. Both bullish and bearish candlesticks can be engulfed by candlessticks. It is associated with a two-bar reversal pattern that indicates the market is showing a reversal.

What is the difference between an engulfing candlestick and a 2 bar reverse pattern? The main difference between the two is that the second bar in the two-bar reversal pattern doesn't have engulf the first one.

- Although two bar reversals are possible to spot in all time frames, they might not be tradeable. To trade them, you will need to see a strong trend and look for signals of reversal at swing points. These are areas of value where you can either buy at low prices or sell for high/expensive amounts.


Price action trading is characterized by two bar reversals. One price action pattern that signals a trend reversal is the 2 bar reversal. It can be either a bullish, or bearish pattern and is composed of two candles or bars.
