A green bar means the price closed higher than it opened. The colors vary according to the charting platform, but red and green are fairly standard. These three elements, the upper shadow, real body, lower shadow will show you how to evaluate any candlestick. Looking at the picture, you can see how candlesticks got their name. They look like a candle with a wick. Various candlestick trading patterns can help you decide if it is time to buy or sell.
When sellers take over, the price goes down. For example, L arry Pesavento, a full-time trader since , not only embraces technical trading but candlestick trading in particular. He teaches students how to use candlesticks to identify repeating patterns. Another such trader is Steve Nison, who speaks and teaches about technical analysis, and has used it for more than 30 years.
He wrote Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques and is credited with championing candlestick trading in Western countries. In addition, the most famous candlestick trader is the man who invented them, Munehisa Homma. He was a Japanese rice trader who tracked price action and saw patterns developing. Technical traders make decisions based on how the chart looks.
They watch for patterns—in this case, candlestick patterns— that indicate where the price may go next. Candlesticks are an easy way to understand the price action. You can use candlesticks to decide when to buy, or when to take your profits and sell. But many traders are quite adamant about using them. There are 42 candlestick patterns. You can become quite good at candlestick trading by knowing some of the most important ones.
Think of candlestick patterns in three categories and that will keep you focused. Traders have given names to each kind of candlestick pattern. Get ready for some fun. Here are three examples. For now, just be aware that there are many. Some make more sense than others, probably because traders were having fun making them up. All of the patterns we discuss below are indicators by themselves, but it is important to zoom out and see where the pattern is in the overall chart.
In particular, reversal patterns should occur after a long uptrend or downtrend. A bullish pattern indicates the price may rise from where it is. Learn to watch for these as an indicator for when to buy or at least watch the price action to confirm the bullish direction. You can see the handle extending below and the hammerhead at the top. The hammer shows that the price dipped low indicated by the long lower shadow then bounced up to close above where it opened.
So what? This formation means the prices traded down during the day. The price action moved lower and lower as more people sold. Then buyers decided that it was low enough and they bought it, driving the price up so that it closed above where it opened. You can see that buyer interest continued for the next two days. It looks like this could be a turning point. You could say this one is a bullish reversal pattern. It indicates the price may rise, reversing the direction.
This pattern involves two candles. The first candlestick is a red one, and the second is green. This can indicate that it is going to rise. Candlestick trading shows what is possible, not what is inevitable. In the inverted hammer pattern, shown above, the hammerhead is at the bottom.
The opening and closing prices are close together. The handle of the hammer should be more than twice as long as the hammerhead. Though the price did not close at the top of the range, it still closed higher than it opened. The morning star pattern is a reversal pattern.
Though price dropped buyers pushed prices back up. Even the red morningstar indicates the price bounced off its lows. The Morningstar occurs in a downward trend that forms a series of three candlesticks. You see that the first is a red candlestick with a long body. The second is green or red but is squatty looking.
Our third candlestick is green, meaning buyers jumped in and drove the price up. On some charts, these candlesticks are white, hence the name. The piercing line pattern above is similar to the engulfing pattern, but the green candle sits lower in the formation. These candlesticks indicate price action may trend lower. The bearish pin bar reversal pattern shown here occurs at the top of an upward trend. This can signal that the uptrend is over and people are starting to sell.
In the Bearish Engulfing pattern shown here,, the bearish red candle has a long body that reaches both higher and lower than the preceding green candlestick.. Sound familiar? Earlier, we looked at a bullish engulfing pattern. Watch those colors. Bearish is red; bullish is green.
This is a reversal pattern you will see at the top of a trend. The body is longer than the green candle from the day before. This can be an early sign of dropping prices. This is a pretty reliable bearish formation in candlestick trading.
Yes, it looks like a hammer, but it is red, and it occurs at the top of an uptrend. In the Hanging Man formation, the long handle shows you that there was a good-sized selloff. Sellers could take over and drive the price down, creating a new downward trend. The Shooting Star looks like an inverted hammer but forms at the top of an uptrend. Buyers drove the price up, but sellers took over.
Look out below. This one could tumble for a bit. You need three candlesticks to see this Evening Star pattern: a green candle with a long body, a short green candle, and a red candlestick. Three Black Crows has three bearish candlesticks that close near the lows of each day. It looks like people may be bailing out, especially because it occurs after an uptrend.
In the Dark Cloud Cover pattern, the price gaps higher and then sells off, creating a candlestick that shows a closing price lower than the midway point in the previous candle. That means more than just knowing what they are; it means knowing what they mean. Practice reading candlesticks, including the setups that include previous candlesticks.
Understand support and resistance. These are vital concepts that can add power to your trading. These two ideas are the foundation of technical trading.
