The first candle will be a bearish red candle. A GAP forms and ends in the second candle being a bullish green candle.
Candle Wick / Shadow
Small wicks may form at both open and close or just at open or close.
The Bullish Kicker has two candles. The red candle always precedes the green candle.
This pattern is rare but can be one of the most powerful signals available, even better yet, if the pattern occurs in overbought or oversold markets. The noticeable GAP between the two candles means a war between bulls and bears, but the bulls seize control over the market.
Volume plays a vital role with the Bullish Kicker. The volume will likely be higher for the Bullish Kicker than any of the surrounding candles.
