DEFINITION of 'Downside Tasuki Gap'

A candlestick formation that is commonly used to signal the continuation of the current downtrend. The pattern is formed when a series of candlesticks have demonstrated the following characteristics:

1. The first bar is a red candlestick within a defined downtrend.
2. The second bar is another red candlestick that has gapped below the close of the previous bar.
3. The last bar is a white candlestick that closes within the gap of the first two bars. It is important to note that the white candle does not need to fully close the gap.
