Japanese candlesticks are not lagging, they reflect priceaction in an easier way to understand. Since they occupymore space on the chart, the relationship between theopen and the close is clearer to observe than withbarcharts. Candles patterns are often ahead of indicatorsto signal market reversals. Key Points• Candlestick patterns do not give price targets• Can be used in any market and any timeframe• Short bodies indicate indecision while long bodies show clear opinion• Shadows represent price extremes• Dont analyze candle patterns in isolation, always consider the prior trend (exception: Kicking pattern)• Confirm with horizontal support/resistance levels or trendlines• For a signal, wait for the close of the candle to reveal itself
• Shadows also called wicks represent the high and the low of the candle or price extremes• To the Japanese the action comprised between the open and the close is the most essential• The real body is the price action between the open and the close• The shadow on the top is called the hair and on the bottom the tail• A candle without shadows is called a Shaved candle (Marubozu)
