Dark Cloud Cover

Dark Cloud Cover Japanese Candlestick Chart Pattern

On a Japanese Candlestick chart, Dark Cloud Cover is a bearish reversal pattern consisting of a black candlestick that follows a long bodied white candlestick during an uptrend.

The long bodied black candle casts an ominous dark cloud over the preceding upward trend in price.

The black candlestick opens at a new high and closes below the midpoint of the body of the preceding long bodied white candlestick.

Dark Cloud Cover is the opposite of the Bullish Piercing Line Candlestick Pattern.
