Swing Engulfing – Bearish Pattern

Developed at Definedge.

A bearish engulfing candle is one where the current price completely engulfs the body of the previous bearish candle. With Renko charts, we plot a series of bricks which show price swings. When a swing move completely retraces the previous move, which was a swing breakout, then it is known as a swing engulfing.

Bearish swing engulfing:

Point A – The price forms a bullish swing breakout
Point B – Bearish swing breakout is completed in the immediate next move.

Prashant Shah introduced this pattern in his book on Renko charts.
