The Dark Cloud Cover is a bearish reversal pattern represented by one candle.

This candle makes a new high but closes below the middle point of the previous candle, then initiating a potential downward movement.

After a Dark Cloud Cover appears in a chart, the price is likely to initiate a new bearish trend or perform a pull-back within the uptrend. If selected in your strategy, this one-candle pattern will signal a sell.

Since this pattern is compounded by one candle, many traders would combine this pattern with an indicator to have more confirmation when it comes to open a position.
