Tasuki Gaps are price continuation candlesticks patterns.

Bullish Tasuki Gap Candlestick Patterns are where an upward price gap is observed after the first candlestick of the pattern, followed by a third bearish candlestick that results as traders pursue brief and temporary profit-taking . The third candlestick closes unable to fill the real price gap. The upward trend of price is expected to continue.

Similarly, a downward bearish candlestick pattern is the result of investors taking advantage of a temporary purchase price increase to open short positions and should confirm an on-going downtrend as the third candlestick period ends without price filling the real gap. The downward trend of price is expected to continue.
