The evening star candlestick pattern is a bearish reversal pattern that hints of a reversal from an uptrend to downtrend. Traders use this pattern to help them spot an early reversal in the stock they are trading. Those who are holding the stock can also use them to plan an early exit from their position. Some may even consider shorting the stock.
The picture above shows how the evening star candlestick pattern looks like. There will be a large bullish candle and then the stock will gap up to form a small body.
