Candlestick Charts in detail - Part 2

Sangeeth Raghanathan

I will be sharing the basics of forex and also my experience in forex trading. If you want to try Forex but don't know where to start and whom to trust?, you are at the right place. I have been in that state and would be more than willing to help people.


 

 

Previously in Candlestick Charts in detail - Part 1, we saw the basic candlestick chart, the significance of long and short body,Spinning tops and Marubozu.

Now we will learn about the Doji, Hammer and Hangman patterns and how we can identify a trend with the help of these patterns.

Doji

Doji candlesticks have the same open and close price. The doji has a very small body that appears as a thin line.

The price may go above and below the open price but it will close at or very near the open price. This indicates that neither the buyers nor the sellers have the control.

When Doji appears, we must closely monitor the preceding candlesticks.

If doji forms after a series of long filled body(green Marubozu), it means that the buyers are exhausted and there is a possibility of sellers bringing down the price. Before deciding, look for a red candle to close below the long green candle open position.

If doji forms after a series of long filled body(red Marubozu), it means that the sellers are exhausted and there is a possibility of buyers bringing up the price. Before deciding, look for a green candle to close below the long red candle open position.

Hammer and Hangman

Hammer and Hangman looks exactly the same but has different meanings depending on the past action. Both have short bodies,long lower shadows, short or no upper shadow.

Hammer is bullish reversal pattern formed during downtrend. To be more sure of the trend reversal, look for a green candle to close above the open price of the hammer to its left.

Hangman is bearish reversal pattern formed during uptrend. To be more sure of the trend reversal, look for a red candle to open below the close price of the hangman to its left.

Inverted Hammer and Shooting star
