The Three Stars In The South is a bullish reversal pattern represented by three candles.

During a downtrend, the first candle decreases, has a long body and a long lower wick. The second candle decreases, has a shorter body and doesn’t make a new low. The third candle is also decreasing, has an even shorter body than the previous one and is engulfed by the second candle.

This pattern suggests that the bearish move is losing negative momentum as the price advances. The smaller size of the last candles and the fact that they are engulfed by the first candle suggests a bullish reversal.

Because of this, traders use this pattern to open long positions.
