Investors and traders seek methods to identify reversal and continuation to better time their trades. This applies for virtually everyone, whether employing a swing trading strategy, engaging in options trading, or timing entry and exit to spot bull and bear reversals. Key signals are found in the dozens of candlesticks, combined with technical signals such as gaps and moves outside of the trading range; size of wicks (shadows) and size of real bodies. The science of candlestick analysis has a proven track record not only from its inception in 17th century Japan, but today as well.
This book explains and demonstrates candlestick signals, including both the appearance of each but in context on an actual stock chart. It further takes the reader through the rationale of reversal and continuation signals and demonstrates the crucial importance of confirmation (in the form of other candlesticks, traditional technical signals, volume, momentum and moving averages).
