A bearish candlestick pattern that may predict the reversal of an uptrend. The Three Black Crows are a visual pattern, meaning no calculations are necessary to identify the pattern. It occurs when bearish candles take over bullish candles for three consecutive trading sessions. This creates a pattern on the pricing chart showing three bearish long-bodied candlesticks with short to no shadows or wicks. This prolonged bearish pressure is taken to mark the start of a bearish downtrend.
