The Falling Three Methods is a continuation bearish pattern represented by five candles.

During a downtrend, a long decreasing candle forms and is followed by three increasing candles with small bodies. Finally, a decreasing candle with a long body covers the previous three candles and closes below the previous low of that range.

This pattern represents a pull-back. The first candle has a long body and decreases, which means that a lot of supply volume pushed the price down. Then the pull-back occurs. Three small-bodied candles increase to the level where the first candle opened.

Finally, since it is a continuation pattern, the last candle continues decreasing and usually leads to further falls in the price. Therefore, this pattern signals sells.
