Upside Tasuki Gap

DEFINITION of 'Upside Tasuki Gap'

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

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