Today’s experienced trader understands that stock prices can often be influenced by emotions and sentiment. Candlestick patterns are a technical analysis tool that captures that emotion and sentiment into a quick and easily understood picture. Candlestick patterns can help in identifying trend reversals, often giving a trader a more reliable and effective signal with just one candle. Barchart’s Candlestick Patterns page can be used as a starting point to find stocks with bullish and bearish patterns. Each of the following pages allows you to run a screen and/or view them in flipcharts. To learn more about candlestick patterns, please watch our webinar.
