Two candle pattern 2. The first candle has an open real body, in line with the Bull trend 3. The second candle has a filled real body 4.

The size and position of the shadows on either candles does not matter 6. On day one the market goes up, as evidenced by the open bodied candlestick. But then it all changes; the sellers are resurgent, and by the end of this session the market has sold off.

The filled real body that surrounds or engulfs the open real body preceding it means enough has been sold off to give back all of the gains made the day before, and a bit more. So there is an arc shaped direction of travel, a rise then a drop, and a weak close to boot. AMEC plc; daily candlestick chart; 16 October — 24 January , showing Bearish Engulfing Pattern on 3 and 4 January 72 Multiple Reversal Patterns On the 4 January a key support level was also broken at , and the move through here produced a Western Double Top formation as the market broke down through the low from a few sessions previous 24 December The other thing to note about this chart is how the market failed right on the resistance from a few months before.

ICE Brent Crude Oil futures all sessions, active unadjusted continuation ; daily candlestick chart; 30 November — 11 February , showing 3 and 4 January Bearish Engulfing Pattern This Bearish Engulfing Pattern saw a red candle surrounding a Star see page 9 made the day before. Immediately after the Bearish Engulfing Pattern another big red candle was posted, so there was some instant gratification.

There was an uptrend line to break before we got too excited though, and you can see there was another solid reaction to the downside once this line gave way. This is an important point to make: The ideal world volume characteristics of this pattern is higher volume on the second candlestick, ie, the selling on the second day is more ferocious than the downloading that was seen on the first. Bearish Engulfing Pattern summary The Bearish Engulfing Pattern is a two candle pattern in a rising market where the second candle has a filled real body that surrounds the open real body before it.

This is generally a strong reversal pattern as it often takes a lot of effort and achievement from the bears for it to form. It is one of my particular favourites for this reason.

Also it usually coincides with the Western bearish outside day. It should be ignored at your peril! The first candle has a filled real body, in line with the Bear trend 3. The second candle has an open real body 4.

The position of the shadows on either candles does not matter 6. The market is in a downtrend when the pattern appears The opposite of a Bearish Engulfing Pattern is, as you might guess, a Bullish Engulfing Pattern. It is similarly powerful, and the set of rules is the same but in reverse. The Bullish Engulfing Pattern suggests that a market has found support, and depicts two sessions where the bears dominate the first day but the bulls come back to life in some style in the second session.

The second candle is akin to the second half of a Hammer session; the bulls suddenly wake up, and come storming back to the party. The preceding chart merely shows some shortterm pullbacks near the top of this bigger picture move. On these three occasions the market pulled back to a short-term Fibonacci retracement level, then the Bullish Engulfing Patterns appeared.

Introduction to Japanese Candlestick Patterns

Bullish Engulfing Pattern summary The Bullish Engulfing Pattern is two candles; the first a filled candle in a downtrend. The change occurs on the second candle when the bulls have a great day after a bad start, and they manage to post a close on day two above the open on day one.

The market gaps higher on the open of the second candle 4.

The second candle has a filled real body 5. The market is in an uptrend Would anyone like to hazard a guess as to whether Dark Cloud Cover is bullish or bearish? At the time it was trading just above I said at the time that I would look for a break back below before acting upon the reversal pattern though. I did this on 12 May, a day when the market sold off points. Over the next 6 days the market sold off down to , a near point drop from our trigger level. I think the storm I predicted took place!

Even if this book has a long shelf life and is still being read in many years to come, I think what happened in the summer of will still be remembered will we ever forget the word subprime? This minirecovery lasted until mid July, but the market never retook the high from 18 June, and after a few days the selling commenced again in style.

The first trade of the next day sees the market gapping higher, so at that time the bulls are once again flexing their muscles and looking totally in charge of the situation. The selling sees us give back a good proportion of the downloading seen the previous day and the market closed well into the real body of the first candlestick.

This is one of those times when it appears that the conversion from the Japanese textbooks on the subject hit upon some translation problems. Or is it that in the Western world we need everything defined to the nth degree? Introduction to the Marabuzo line But something interesting has come of this. There is a name in candlestick analysis for the halfway point of the real body of a large bodied candlestick, and it is the Marabuzo line.

To gap or not to gap — Dark Cloud Cover variations The next thing worth talking about where this pattern is concerned is rule number 4: That means that the top of the real body of the second candle should be above the high of the first day ie, above the top of the upper shadow. Quite often I see this rule disregarded, or is it misinterpreted? Figure A B In both cases there are two candles, the first of which is green. Figure A is a classic Dark Cloud Cover as it satisfies all of our rules set out on page I prefer to call it a variation on a Dark Cloud Cover and to not ignore it entirely on that basis.

We will look later at how flexibility can be, and at times has to be, applied to the reading of candlesticks. As with anything to do with technicals, you have to do the work and you have to look back and see what works best on the chart you are viewing. Dark Cloud Cover summary Dark Cloud Cover is a marvellously gloomy sounding two candle reversal pattern seen during an uptrend.

The first candle has an open real body and is in line with the bullish tone of the market. On the second day we see weakness after a strong start, and a close is posted well into the real body of the first candle. The first candle has a filled real body, in line with the downtrend 3.

The market gaps lower on the open of the second candle 4. The second candle has an open real body 5. This all came on the back of a pretty shoddy start to proceedings on the second day. After the first candle, and on the open of the second candle, the bears were by far the happier group, and were dominating things.

But then the market experienced strong downloading which was sustained into the close, and an open bodied candle was posted. If on the second session the bulls had kept up the good work and taken us above the open from the first day, and if these gains were sustained into the close a Bullish Engulfing Pattern would have been posted.

Use it! Figure 4—8: Anglo American plc; daily candlestick chart; 5 December — 18 February , showing Piercing Pattern on 21 and 22 January Ideally the volume characteristics of a Piercing Pattern show a jump in volume on the second candle; in other words the downloading that created the green candlestick was proper downloading, and not just the result of the bears having a day off.

A candlestick with an open real body is then posted the next day, closing well into the red real body of the first candle. My personal experience is that Piercing Patterns are so few and far between that I always get a bit of a jolt when I see one. The second candle has an open real body that is contained within the filled real body of the candle before it 4. The reason the Harami is so named is because the pattern involves two candles, one of which is contained within the other.

There are two types of Harami: This second session finishes with a smaller real body than the first day, although it is the opposite colour. So our green real body is contained within the red real body before it. Below is an example of a Bullish Harami in action in the Long Gilt. I saw the pattern the candles circled at point D and flagged it, but decided to wait until the market got through gap resistance overhead at Figure 4—9: At this point it looked like the bulls were waking up, but again there was a failure to follow through and prices subsequently headed lower, until the Bullish Harami was posted at point D.

At this point we needed to see the market take out the gap resistance at Bullish Harami Pattern summary A Bullish Harami Pattern is seen during a downtrending market and is made up of two candles. The first is a filled candle in line with the downtrend. The second is a candle with an open real body that sits within the confines of the filled real body of the first candle. It is often described as a mirror image of the Engulfing Pattern, but is generally nothing like as powerful.

Not one of my favourites, but can be a good warning signal. The first candle has an open real body, in line with an uptrend 3. The second candle has a filled real body that is contained within the real body of the open candle before it 4. The market is in an uptrend The next line is going to be rather predictable, I fear.

The opposite of a Bullish Harami is… can you guess? Yes indeed! Go to the top of the class! A Bearish Harami. As you can see from our box on the previous page, it has all of the rules of the Bullish Harami but in reverse; this time a small red real body sits within the green real body prior to it.

The weak open on the second day of our pattern is the first sign that the market may be struggling at these levels. Instead the market does pretty much nothing, and ends the day within the real body of the previous session.

If I were forced to give pattern star ratings based on my personal experience across all markets and time frames this one would score pretty lowly, although as I mentioned earlier this is not a game I like to play.

This was engulfed the next day with a big red candle. We have a gaggle of reversal patterns, a sloth of bears, a cacophony of noise arguing in favour of further downside, and the market duly obliged. Spotting the Harami pattern would have given you an early hint that something was amiss, and with each day that another negative candlestick was posted our conviction increased. Once 5.

As is customary in a strong uptrend, this weakness was not bought into. Bearish Harami summary The Bearish Harami warns of a market topping out. It is constructed of two candles.

The second candle has a filled real body, usually quite small, contained within the open real body before it. This is something I often try to get across to people about candlesticks, especially people who want to be completely definitive about this sort of thing. For example, you see a pattern and you download it the next day and you run it for n number of days.

If you did this with Harami patterns the results would probably be abysmal. If you did it with something supposedly more potent like Shooting Stars the results would almost certainly still be ordinary, if not disastrous. You can simply use candlesticks to give you a better understanding of the balance of power between bulls and bears at any particular moment, and you can use candlestick reversal patterns to set off alarms that maybe a move is running out of steam.

The second candle has a small real body 5. The market is in an uptrend You could class the Star as a one candle pattern, but I have always been happier to call it a two candle pattern, and ask that a Star-like candle is posted after a strong up day. A Star is a small bodied candle that gaps away from a large bodied candle before it. It was a pretty even balance between the two, and all of that after such a promising start.

We ended up having a damp squib of a session. The bears did as well as the bulls, and no one won. Have things changed? Has the balance evened out? Did the bulls mess up what started out as a really promising session for them? Anyway I digress. This is what I wrote the next day: This should be used as a warning sign of the bull run waning.

Bearish Star summary A Bearish Star is a small bodied candle seen above a large open bodied candle in a rising market. The small body on the second day shows that despite a promising start the bulls lost temporary control. We should now be on alert in case this loss of control becomes a more sustained deal from the bears, ie, a reversal. As you can see the market sold off a bit the next day which actually engulfed the previous day , but it took a few more days before things really got going for the bears and within a few weeks the market had pulled back to What are the headlines in the press the next day?

The market is in a downtrend If the market is in a downtrend and you see a small bodied candle immediately after a big red one this may be a sign that the downtrend is on the wane. The bears are in charge because the market is in a downtrend, and the big lower open is just further proof that the bears are doing all the bossing. Shire Pharmaceuticals Group plc; daily candlestick chart; 26 November — 26 February , showing several Star combinations Figure shows three Bullish Stars.

As you can see I got some instant gratification on this occasion with a strong up day the next day. But the rally soon petered out and the market decided to come back and fill the gap seen after our Star formation see Chapter 5 for a discussion of gaps. In doing this another Star pattern was formed, and this time there was a decent rally for several sessions after the gap-filling Star.

If after one of these the market opens significantly lower but then does nothing for the rest of the day, this lack of reaction can be taken as a warning signal that the selling is stalling. Three candle pattern 2. The third candle is filled and closes well into the real body of the first candle 5. So there are two candles that make up a Bearish Star — a green candle followed by a small candle that gaps higher.

Then the third day is a big red candle that confirms the suspicions expressed after the small gap day.

Clive Lambert - Candlestick Charts.pdf - Trading Software

The third day sees the market close well into the real body of the first candle of the three. Where have we seen this before?

We solve this slight ambiguity by using the Marabuzo line of the first candle, and the same applies here: Initial strength 2. A day of pure indecision despite the market making a new high 3. A session that backs up the indecisiveness of the previous session and confirms that prices had reached levels that were too high! It is a recurring theme when you study Japanese charting techniques that the number three has almost mystical connotations. The market rallied again though, several times, and in April saw a run higher that ended with an Evening Star.

This proves something else about these powerful reversal patterns. In fact there is a name for a small bodied candle that sits on the chart after having gapped higher or lower in a downtrend, below the rest of the market. Nevertheless as long as we stick to the basic principles, there are several combinations of candles that can come together and still be classed as an Evening Star. The important message about the third session, surely, is where it finished?

The psychology of the third session of an Evening Star is all about how far the sellers took us back into the range of the first day, not where the first trade of the day may have been. The second and third candles of the Evening Star also combine to form a variation on a Bearish Engulfing Pattern.

You may have noticed that I am sneaking into the text the idea of adopting some flexibility into the reading of the charts and the patterns. This is quite deliberate, although there are some observers particularly the left brain people who would strongly disagree with this blurring of the lines.

To those people I would ask the following question: If you were long and you allowed the bearish candles to signal some lightening up of your position, you would have been delighted. If you had sold the market short after the formation of the pattern you would have only been showing a loss for a short period of time during the subsequent session.

Merging candles If you are in a strong downtrend you will likely see a fair few big down days posted, with large filled real bodies. High Close Open Low Figure Three candles that make up an Evening Star, when merged together form a Shooting Star Candlestick Charts Evening Star summary An Evening Star is a powerful reversal pattern seen in a rising market.

It is comprised of three candles. The first is a bullish day, the second is a Star with indecision rife despite the early promise.

This indecision turns into outright bearishness on day three, which is why this is such a powerful reversal, and so closely watched by the Japanese. What happens when a Bullish Star formation is backed up by a strong day the next day? The first candle has a filled real body, in line with the weak trend 3.

The third candle is open and it finishes well into the real body of the first candle 5. The downloaders are back in town, and day two was the definitive turning point. As I said with the Evening Star, this is a particularly potent pattern according to the Japanese, and you can see why. Instead, only the condition of closing well into the real body of the first day needs to be satisfied that word Marabuzo comes into play once more.

Three candles that make up a Morning Star — when merged together they form a Hammer Morning Star summary The three candles that form a Morning Star make a potent argument for the reversal of an established downtrend.

Day two starts off with further weakness but then nothing really happens. After this questions should be asked as to the sustainability of the down-move. Day three answers these questions. A big open candle tells us the bulls are back in town.

FTSE futures unadjusted continuation ; daily candlestick chart; 16 Sep — 22 Nov , showing Morning Star variation on 20, 21 and 24 October Combining the Morning Star Again we would pose the question of what these three candles would become if you were to condense them all together into one? The following illustration shows this clearly. Prices need to break through this level to form these patterns, and it needs to do so on a closing basis.

Similarly a Dark Cloud Cover formation is only formed when weakness on the second session takes us below the Marabuzo line of the green candle posted beforehand. Of course this weakness also has to be maintained into the close, but the breaking of this level has to occur first, and this very often sees these levels becoming a strong focus.

Have a look at the following chart: Figure 4— ICE Brent Crude Oil futures all sessions, unadjusted continuation ; daily candlestick chart; 4 September — 6 November Two Bearish Harami patterns were posted in a row on 16 and 17 October, then again on 18 and 19 October. Only a few days earlier, on 15 October, a big green candle with a Marabuzo line at Looking back at my commentary after these Harami patterns, we see that the reversal patterns were flagged, but I asked that the market take out The power of the Marabuzo line came into play again a week or so later.

An introduction to using candlestick charts

You can see a big red candle was posted at point A 30 October In fact I said on the very next day that if Needless to say I was very pleased to see the low of the day coming in at Just for the sake of clarity, below is a good example of Marabuzo lines proving to be a good reference to stay with the bears in a down move.

LIFFE Long Gilt futures adjusted continuation ; daily candlestick chart; 17 March — 23 May One thing worth noting at this point is that these lines generally work best if they give support in an uptrend or resistance in a downtrend. If the market is in a solid uptrend you will see many strong days with large green candles. After these big up days we are generally left looking at a big green real body to which we can apply a Marabuzo line.

Any weakness in the subsequent days often finds support at these lines. Think about it; in an uptrending market you should be looking for downloading opportunities, or support levels where the downloaders are likely to step back in. I always suggest looking to trade in the direction of the underlying trend, for example downloading dips Candlestick Charts to support in rising markets.

I think there may be something about halfway that makes people sit up and pay attention. I feel like that most Wednesday lunchtimes! This is a rarity at the time, of course! The bears who defended this level, and possibly used it as a selling opportunity, have been wrong-footed and need to download back to stop out. The Marabuzo line would be one such key resistance, so its break may cause these shorts to start covering.

Marabuzo lines summary To sum up, I think Marabuzo lines can be a great tool for answering those big questions that are posed after large directional days. Debt markets often see a strong reaction to the US Employment report on the first Friday of every month.

Marabuzo lines can often answer this question. Say the market saw a strong reaction to the numbers and rallied from an open at The Multiple Reversal Patterns Marabuzo line will be at We can say that all the time the market remains above However, if prices fall back through I have found over the years that these lines can provide extremely powerful and reliable levels of support or resistance, particularly in strongly trending markets.

These are the most powerful patterns in candlesticks but they are by no means the be all and end all. There are a bunch of patterns that signal a continuation of a trend, indicating that things have taken a temporary pause for breath before continuing on their merry way.

This is often a difficult thing to decide: This is why I always ask for a bit more confirmation of any reversal pattern. So, a five candle pattern then!

Three days are then spent with prices gently nudging higher, but not with any real conviction. This could be the result of some short covering. Or it could be that the big red candle was the result of a big bit of news, which was swiftly followed by a few days of calm after the storm reflection. Another big red candle proves that the bears are back in the box seat.

The Falling Three is the opposite, and is to do with the bulls taking a breather in an uptrend. The chart in Figure shows an example of such a pause for breath on an intra-day chart. CAC 40 futures May ; minute candlestick chart; 15 May , A gap, quite simply, is an area of price at which no trade has taken place due to exceptionally strong, or exceptionally weak opens. In other words the market invariably goes back down to a gap support, or returns higher to a gap resistance, shortly after the gap appears.

This book, being a broad brush introduction, will not go into the nuts and bolts of testing theories in this way. Instead what I will say is that gaps usually create quite a stir, and are often strong reference points, especially for those trading short-term time frames. Why are gaps so important as a continuation signal in an uptrend? If you open strongly and leave a gap below you have an instant support level.

The bulls have a strong line in the sand and often downloaders will put bids in at or ahead of the gap to try and gain good trade entry at what should be a key juncture. If you think about the Dark Cloud Cover formation and not necessarily always, but quite often the Bearish Engulfing Pattern, it is often the failure to hold the overnight gap that is the first sign of trouble. The dominant bears often line up to sell at or just in front of this level, so you can see how the resistance is created.

A downtrending market that stays below an upside gap is showing its lack of upside conviction and proves that the bear tack should be stuck with. If a security has been dropping sharply and gaps have been left to the upside then every time one of these key resistance levels is retaken on any subsequent rally the bulls have reason to cheer.

This is particularly important in candlestick analysis because it is inherently a contrarian form of analysis. Spotting reversal patterns is key, so you need to see some confirmation after such a pattern. A breakaway gap signalling the start of a move 2. A measuring gap seen halfway through a trend if you know where halfway is you can measure where the end should or could be 3. An exhaustion gap, seen when a powerful trend particularly an uptrend is ending.

I like two out of the three of these. In my trading lifetime I have seen many breakaway gaps. I can also see the logic behind it, or the psychology if we want to stick to the underlying theme of this book. Often a stock goes on a run because someone tips it in the weekend press, or a strong piece of fundamental news is released, such as a pharmaceutical company getting approval for a new drug or a mining company striking a new vein, or a company receiving a takeover Candlestick Charts approach.

All of these things can cause a market to gap higher and trigger the start of a bull run. Similarly a breakaway gap can be seen at the start of a downtrend if a stock is downgraded, or if a bid is pulled, or if a drug is kyboshed by the FDA! However, it is really only in retrospect that you can definitively label these as exhaustion gaps. At the top of the dotcom bubble in your plumber was giving stock recommendations.

Sanity will be restored some time soon in the shape of a big reversal — a down-move that, at the very least, restores things to more sensible levels and gets rid of the froth. For the sake of completion, despite my dismissal a measuring gap is said to be seen at the mid point of a move.

Once you know where the middle is, you can measure where the end could be. Eurex DAX futures unadjusted continuation ; daily candlestick chart; 26 November — 27 May It could be argued that the gap at point A was an exhaustion gap.

But how would an observer know that at the time? Sure enough, once this gap failed to hold there was not much upside, and it was at this point it became apparent that it could have been an exhaustion deal.

On the subsequent down move the market left a couple of gaps at B and C, and the day after gap C posted an enormous down day. The gap at point D turned out to be an exhaustion gap for the downside move. It was bang in the middle of a Morning Star formation and a few days later the market gapped higher at point E.

This gap held on a sell-off a few days later and provided a nice downloading Candlestick Charts opportunity if you were looking for such a move on the back of the Morning Star. At point F there was another gap that held on a couple of subsequent occasions in the ensuing weeks.

Chapter summary Gaps can be extremely important reference points, and in my experience they work very well when seen in line with a firm trend, except in conditions where the market is capitulating, in which case they can be used as a warning of a potential reversal. Often you will see a reversal pattern at an extreme after the market has left a gap or two.

The gaps can be good reference points subsequently, to be used as confirmation of the reversals. My answer is always the same: Daily and weekly candlestick charts can be used for making investment decisions with a time horizon of anything from two weeks upwards. They need a view of the bigger picture, and weekly charts do exactly this.

Figure a: LIFFE Long Gilt adjusted continuation ; daily candlestick chart; 9 November — 14 March , showing 17, 18 and 19 January Evening Star Candlestick Charts Many money managers use longer-term moving averages, the most common being the day and day averages, and I would suggest overlaying candlesticks onto these, looking for times when reversal patterns appear after a pullback to a reliable moving average line.

Opposite is a great example of this kind of thing, occurring at a top in the Long Gilt. Figure b: LIFFE Long Gilt adjusted continuation ; weekly candlestick chart; 9 November — 14 March , showing Long Legged Doji for the week of January Most of the time that I see technical analysis being used by long-term money managers it is as a filtering process.

You apply a set of conditions to a list of stocks or markets and ask a computer to give you a list of constituents of said list that tick all of your conditions. It is fairly simple these days to add pattern recognition into this sort of programme, so that you can make candlesticks a part of the process.

Say you have a filtering process that looks for stocks on the LSE that are below their 10day moving average but have just hit their day average. This may produce a list of, say, 50 stocks a day. If this is too many, then you need another parameter to narrow the search. How about stocks that at the same time post a candlestick reversal pattern? What you would then have is a list of stocks that have been selling off in the short term but are now hitting key long-term support and showing signs of reversing.

Ichimoku charts are overlaid on a candlestick chart — the two go hand in hand. This was seen within the cloud, with the top of the cloud capping upside on the pattern. A few days later when the market sold off through the bottom of the cloud the downside accelerated dramatically. If you are a day trader wanting to use short-term candlestick charts as the basis, or even as just one element of your trading strategy, then I would like first of all to stress one very important thing: Candle charts, even daily and weekly charts, are dynamic, and can change without you even realising it.

A potential reversal pattern can creep up on you, believe me! But back to the short-term time frames: In other words, over the course of an entire session the market sold off from Figure has a Hammer at the bottom as well, except this is a minute chart. More or less exactly the same thing happened over this minute period as happened on the Hammer day in Chart The message is the same; there was a period of time where the market sold off then recovered — a sign that the downloaders had returned to the fray because the price looked cheap.

The range on this minute period was 17 ticks. The market sold off from The following 20 candles representing 3 hours and 20 minutes of trade saw the market rally steadily, adding 29 ticks. Eurex Bund futures; minute candlestick chart; 18 April , Candlesticks tell you where the market has been. From this you can make assumptions as to the state of mind of the market as a whole.

You can tell when the cracks are appearing, when things may be changing. One of the biggest challenges facing any trader is working out the time frame that works for them. We are all individuals, and on that basis will all have different ways of dealing with things. I have heard people say that technical analysis can remove the emotion from trading but this is wrong. The vast majority of people cannot remove emotion from trading, but you need to try and find a way to manage it so that the old evil pairing of fear and greed do not take over your decision making.

I often think that there is a real opportunity for voice brokers with a technical leaning. Longer-term money managers could come up with the ideas, then leave it to the broker to time the entry of the trade using short-term technicals. Applying flexibility when viewing short-term time frame charts In the early chapters of this book I covered some of the more popular candlestick reversal patterns, and with each one I presented a box that summarised the rules that need to be satisfied for each particular pattern.
