The Upside Gap Three Methods Bearish is a bearish reversal pattern represented by three candles.

During an uptrend, the first candle increases and has a long body. The second candle also increases and opens above the high of the previous one, then featuring a gap. The third one starts decreasing and closes within the body of the first candle.

Many times, the gaps are quickly closed by the next candle or candles. In this particular case, the gap is quickly closed by a decreasing candle, which is very likely to initiate a trend reversal.

Many trades use this pattern as a signal to close positions or open shorts.
