How to trade Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern

Dark Cloud Pattern
We are discussing about the reversal candlesticks patterns. Before digging into, Dark Cloud Cover, you may check Engulfing patterns, Hammer and Hanging man patterns.

Our next reversal pattern is the dark-cloud cover. It is a two candlestick pattern that is a top reversal after an uptrend or, at times, at the top of a congestion band. The first day of this two candlestick pattern is a strong green real body. The second day's price opens above the first session's high.

However, by the end of the second day's session, the market closes near the
low of the day and well within the first day's green body. The greater
the degree of penetration into the green real body the more likely a top
will occur. If red candle penetrates green candle more than 50% that of the green candle, a good indication of a reversal.

If the red candlestick does not close below the halfway point of the green candlestick it may be the best to wait for more bearish confirmation following the dark cloud cover.
