This article introduces the “On Neck Line” a Bearish Continuation Pattern

On Neck Line Candlestick Signal

(ate kubi)


The On Neck Line pattern is almost a ‘meeting line pattern’, but the critical term is ‘almost’. The ON Neck pattern does not reach the previous day’s close; it only reaches the previous day’s low.


  1. A long black candle forms in a downtrend.
  2. The next day gaps down from the previous day’s close; howver, the body is usally smaller than one seen in the meeting line pattern.
  3. The second day closes at the low of the previous day.

Pattern Psychology

After a market has been moving in a downward direction, a long black candle enhances the downtrend. The next day opens lower, a small gap down, but the trend is halted by a move back up to the previous day’s low. The buyers in this up move should be uncomfortable that there was not more strength in the up move. The sellers step back in the next day to continue the downtrend.
