4.1 Bullish candlestick Patterns.

Here are some of the bullish candlestick patterns. They mostly occur near the end of downtrends to signal a bullish reversal.

Once you spot them, confirm bullish reversal with a technical indicator then enter a Buy position.

Such technical Indicators include the Moving Average Convergence and Divergence (MACD) or the Relative Strength Index (RSI).

  • Bullish engulfing – formed by a short bearish candlestick completely engulfed by a larger bullish candlestick. The bullish candlestick must gap down to open below the close of the bearish candlestick, then close above the open of the same candlestick.
  • Hammer – formed by one candlestick with a short body and a long lower tail. The tail must be more than twice the height of the body.
  • Inverse hammer – formed by one candlestick with a short body, a long upper tail, and very short or no lower tail.
  • Three white soldiers – formed by three consecutive bullish candlesticks with small wicks. From the second, each candlestick must open and close higher than the previous.
  • Piercing line – formed by a long bearish candlestick followed by a long bullish candlestick. The bullish candlestick must gap down to open below the close of the bearish candlestick, then close at or above the middle of the body of the bearish candlestick.
  • Morning star – formed by a long bearish candlestick followed by a gap down then a short-bodied candlestick or a doji, a gap up then, and a long bullish candlestick.

4.2 Bearish Candlestick Patterns.

Here are some of the bearish candlestick patterns.

They mostly occur near the end of uptrends to signal a bearish reversal.

If you spot any, confirm bearish reversal with a technical indicator then enter a Sell position.

Use technical indicators like the Moving Average Convergence and Divergence (MACD) or the Relative Strength Index (RSI).

  • Bearish engulfing – formed by a short bullish candlestick completely engulfed by a larger bearish candlestick. The bearish candlestick must gap up to open above the close of the bullish candlestick, then close below the open of the same candlestick.
  • Hanging man – formed by one candlestick with a short body and a long lower tail. The tail must be more than twice the height of the body. Its difference with the hammer is that it occurs near the end of an uptrend.
  • Shooting star – formed by one candlestick with a short body, a long upper tail, and very short or no lower tail. Its difference with the inverse hammer is the uptrend.
  • Three black crows – formed by three consecutive bearish candlesticks with small wicks. From the second, each candlestick must open and close lower than the previous.
  • Dark cloud cover – formed by a long bullish candlestick followed by a long bearish candlestick. The bearish candlestick must gap up to open above the close of the bullish candlestick, then close at or below the middle of the body of the bullish candlestick.
  • Evening star – formed by a long bullish candlestick followed by a gap up then a short-bodied candlestick or a doji, a gap down then and a long bearish candlestick.
