Separating Lines (Bearish)
You can see immediately that the bearish separating lines pattern is the exact opposite of the bullish separating lines pattern, so it does not need any further explanation.

The pattern known as bearish falling three methods confuse many chartists at first. It is not until the third or fourth day of the pattern that it becomes clear.

Look close and you can see that a new high is not formed from the high set on the first day. This is a very bearish signal and short sellers react strongly to this pattern.

In-Neck (Bearish)
The first day of the in-neck continuation pattern is a long black day and the second is a white day that shows an opening of trading below the low of the prior trading session. Then on the close the price is equal to or just above the closing price of the prior session.

This pattern has the bears looking for the falling trend to continue but it may be some time before it is confirmed.
