Evening StarBack to Glossary
In technical analysis an Evening Star is a three candle pattern that is used by chartists to signal the end of an uptrend and the beginning of a reversal. Evening Stars are typically found at the top of upward trending markets. Firstly you have a large upward candle, this is followed by a small candle, either upward or downward, with a closing price that is above the previous candle, finally a large downward candle that opens below the second one and closes at around the midpoint of the first candle. Evening stars signal a bull move that is running out of steam. As the buying power of the bulls begins to wane, this gives the bears a chance to reassert their dominance.
