Bullish engulfing candle pattern.

The bullish engulfing candle pattern is created after a bearish market move. assuming that the price has fallen in the last 6 candles and candle # 7 begins to open, for there to be a change in price trend, candle 7 must exceed the size of the previous candle, wrapping it in its entirety and doubling its size.

that is, the # 6 candle, is a red candle, the next candle, which is the # 7 candle, must exceed the red candle above its opening.

If this happens we are facing a bullish engulfing candle pattern, from then on the value of the asset will change and the price will begin to rise.

This pattern, apart from showing an evident change in trend, indicates that there are no longer people interested in selling and most of the orders have been taken by buyers.



Doji candlestick pattern.

This type of candle pattern is created by indecision in the market, indicating that traders do not know what to do, this type of candle opens and closes at the same price, they are rare and have no body, their name is translated from Japanese and indicates error, says that the name is given by Japanese traders.

there are 4 types of doji:

Candles neutral doji

This candle is formed because the initial price is identical to the closing price, it is formed in the middle of the candle creating a cross, this pattern indicates that buyers and sellers cannot change the price in their favor, it indicates indecision.


Long legged doji.

It is identical to the neutral doji candle only that the price fluctuates more, and indicates indecision.


Doji gravestone.

This candle is formed when the initial price and the closing price are set at the lowest part of the candle or at the bottom of the candle, when it appears there is likely to be a trend change from bearish to bullish.


Doji dragonfly.

This candle is formed when the initial price and the closing price ends at the top of the candle or at the maximum of the candle, just as the gravestone candle indicates a change in trend, in this case the trend would start to be bearish .


The Hammer candlestick pattern.

The hammer candlestick pattern is created when the closing price is very close to the starting price of the candle, these patterns indicate reversal in prices, to know that it is a hammer candle, the shadow should be at least twice the body, if these candles appear on the support and resistance trend lines they are more effective in our analysis.

There are 2 types of hammer candles:

Bullish hammer.
the bullish hammer appears at the end of a downtrend, indicating a change in trend, this tells us that the sellers managed to make the price go down a lot, creating new lows before its close, the wick is long down.


Inverted hammer.

the inverted hammer, appear after an uptrend indicating a possible downtrend, indicating that sellers managed to make the price go down.


The morning star

This pattern is formed by 3 consecutive candles, a long-bodied bearish candle, followed by a small doji candle with a short wick and an engulfing bullish candle, this type of pattern indicates that the market will be the buyers and the price will rise and change the trend.

This pattern is a clear change in trend, sellers were able to keep the price high and the reversal is inevitable and buyers have now taken over the market.


Evening star

This pattern shows a strong downward trend change, it is formed by 3 candles, the first candle is a large bullish candle, this indicates that the buyers have the power, the second candle, is a small doji candle, here you can see that the Buyers can no longer continue to raise the price and hold it for a while, and the third candle is a bearish engulfing candle, this candle must outperform the previous candle, this shows that the price is going to change.

This pattern shows the psychology behind the pattern that buyers could not keep the price up and sellers managed to dominate the market and take over and the price falls.
