The squeeze alert pattern can occur in both bull and bear markets.

The squeeze alert is extremely effective day trading morning reversals.

Bearish Squeeze Alert - Charting Example

The first candlestick in the formation is a long white (green) candlestick that closes near its high with an increase in volume. This candle must be preceded by either a lengthy uptrend, or a large gap up. The second and third candlestick have lower highs and lower lows than the previous candlesticks. This pattern shows that the upside momentum is stalling out. Traders should wait for the low of the second candlestick to be broken prior to taking any short positions.
