The second day formation of small candlestick (either bullish or bearish or neutral) with a gap down indicates that the bears are still holding the position but they are not able to push the price much lower further indicates that the bears strength is loosening. A bullish candlestick on day 2 speaks a lot more about bears weakness. Formation of long bullish candlestick on Day 3 confirm the pattern and shows that bull are taking over the market over the bulls strongly. If the third day candlestick opens with a gap up and closes above or atleast near the midpoint of the Day 1 candlestick, it indicates a strong trend reversal and a buy signal.
