Abandoned Baby - a reversal pattern characterized by a gap followed by a Doji, which is then followed by another gap in the opposite direction. The shadows on the Doji must completely gap below or above the shadows of the first and third candle. Dark Cloud Cover - a bearish reversal pattern that continues the uptrend with a long blue body. The next candle opens at a new high then closes below the midpoint of the body of the first candle. The pattern is more signficant if the second candle's body is below the center of the previous body. The pattern is casting a Â“dark cloudÂ” over the bullish trend that preceded it. Confirmation of the pattern is achieved when another red candle, of smaller size, forms after the second candle. Doji - type of candlestick and a warning sign of a pending reversal. The lack of a real body conveys a sense of indecision or tug-of-war between buyers and sellers and the balance of power may be shifting. The open and close are pretty much equal. The length of the upper and lower shadows can vary and the resulting candlestick looks like a cross, inverted cross or plus sign. Downside Tasuki Gap - a continuation pattern with a long, red body followed by another red body that has gapped below the first one. The third candle is blue and opens within the body of the second candle, then closes in the gap between the first two candles, but does not close the gap. Dragonfly Doji - a doji where it opens and closes at or near its high. The candle ends up with a tall lower shadow and no body. It is usually seen at the bottom of a move. More bullish than a hammer. Engulfing Pattern - a reversal pattern that can be bearish or bullish depending upon whether it appears at the end of an uptrend (bearish engulfing pattern) or downtrend (bullish engulfing pattern). The first candle is characterized by a small body, followed by a candle whose body completely engulfs the previous candle's body. Evening Doji Star - a three candle bearish reversal pattern similar to the Evening Star. The uptrend continues with a large blue body. The next candle opens higher, trades in a small range, then closes at its open (Doji). The next candle closes below the midpoint of the body of the first candle. Evening Star - a bearish reversal pattern that continues an uptrend with a long blue body candle followed by a gapped up small body candle, then a down close with the close below the midpoint of the first candle. Falling Three Methods - a bearish continuation pattern. A long red body is followed by three small body candles, each fully contained within the range of the high and low of the first candle. The fifth candle closes at a new low. Gravestone Doji - a doji candle that opens and closes at or near its low. The candle ends up having a long upper shadow and no body. It is usually seen at the end of an uptrend. This pattern is more bearish than a shooting star. Hammer - hammer candlesticks form when prices moves significantly lower after the open, but rallies to close well above the intracandle low. The resulting candlestick looks like a square lollipop with a long stick. A hammer indicates that the market may be attempting to find a bottom, and that buyers are strengthening their position. If this candlestick occurs after a significant uptrend, then it is called a Hanging Man. The body can be clear or filled in. Hanging Man - hanging man candlesticks form when the price moves significantly lower after the open, but rallies to close well above the intracandle low. The resulting candlestick looks like a square lollipop with a long stick. If this candlestick forms during a decline, then it is called a Hammer. Harami - a two candle pattern that has a small body candle completely contained within the range of the previous body, and is the opposite colour. Coming after a strong trend, this pattern indicates a decrease in momentum and possibly the end of the trend. Harami Cross - a reversal signal and is formed when a long candle is followed by a doji. For the pattern to be a valid harami cross, the doji should be located within the top and bottom of the first candleÂ’s body. A bullish harami cross is formed when a long red candle is followed by a doji. It appears during a downtrend and signals a reversal. A bearish harami cross, on the other hand, is formed during an uptrend and consists of a long blue candle followed by a doji. Inverted Hammer - a one candle bullish reversal pattern. In a downtrend, the open is lower, then it trades higher, but closes near its open, therefore looking like an inverted lollipop. Long-Legged Doji - a candlestick with a long upper and lower shadows with the Doji in the middle of the candle's trading range, clearly reflecting the indecision of traders. Long Shadows - candlesticks with a long upper shadow and short lower shadow indicate that buyers dominated during the first part of the session bidding prices higher. Conversely, candlesticks with long lower shadows and short upper shadows indicate that sellers dominated during the first part of the session driving prices lower.
