Advance Block



The Advance Block is somewhat indicative as the Three White  Soldiers but it is a bearish signal. Unlike the Three White Soldiers, having consistent long candles, the Advance Block shows signs of weakness. The bodies are diminishing as prices rise and the upper shadows becoming longer indicate that the bulls are getting more resistance from the bears. This pattern is going to occur in an up-trend or occurs during a bounce up in a downtrend. It is visually obvious that the rise is losing its power.


  1. Each white candle occurs with higher closes.
  2. The opens occur in the previous day’s body.
  3. The bodies are getting smaller and/or the upper shadows are getting longer.

Pattern Psychology

After an up trend or a bounce up during a long downtrend, the Advance Block will show itself with an initial strong white candle day. However, unlike the Three White Soldiers, each proceeding day becomes less strong. If the bulls try to take the prices up, the bears step in and take them back down. After three days of waning strength, the bears should confirm the reversal with further deterioration.
