Dark Cloud Cover is a bearish candlestick reversal pattern. There are two candlesticks that make up this pattern: a bullish candle on day 1, a bearish candle on day 2.


A Dark Cloud Cover Pattern occurs when a bearish candle on Day 2 closes below the middle or 50% mark of Day 1’s candle.

Price gaps up on Day 2 only to fill the gap and take out over half of the gain made on Day 1.
