How to identify deliberation candlestick patterns?

Three bullish candlesticks should form in a specific sequence and structure to confirm a deliberation pattern.

Here’s the guide

  1. The first candlestick will be a significant bullish candlestick.
  2. The second candlestick must open above the opening price of the previous candlestick, and it should close above the high of the last candlestick.
  3. The last candlestick should have a small body and the same opening price. It can close either above the high of a previous candlestick or below the high.  But it should be a bullish candlestick.

The deliberation candlestick should form at the top of the candlestick chart for better performance.

What does the deliberation pattern tell traders?

The three bullish candlesticks within the deliberation candlestick pattern indicate the momentum of buyers.

The first bullish candlestick represents the high momentum of buyers. In the next session, the momentum of buyers will decrease. In the third/last session, buyers’ momentum will significantly reduce due to the formation of a small candlestick.

This indicates that with time, the force of buyers is decreasing, and the power of sellers is increasing. In the third attempt, buyers will lose bullish momentum, and sellers will dominate the market. As a result, the price will decrease.

Best working conditions for the deliberation pattern

To increase the winning ratio of this candlestick pattern, you will always have to add confluences. Because every pattern is not worth trading. If you are going to sell on each candlestick pattern on a chart, you will not profit.

Here are the two confluences you can add to a trading strategy

  • Resistance Zone: Forming a deliberation pattern at the support zone will turn bullish into a bearish trend. Because the confluence of both technical tools has been combined.
  • Overbought region: If the deliberation pattern forms in the overbought area (RSI > 70), then the probability of bearish trend reversal will increase.
