How To Read Candlestick Charts

Candlestick pattern is one of the most powerful stock patterns for swing trading. It can predict the stock movement with certain accuracy allowing a trader to profit from buying and selling a stock in short term trading.

Candlestick Chart Pattern

The above pattern is the candlestick formation of a positive day. The "Open" indicates the open price of a stock, "Close" indicates the closing price, "Low" indicates the low of the stock and "High" indicates the highest trading price of the stock. On a positive stock day, the candlestick body is white. The following stock pattern is a formation of a stock down day. As you can see, the only differences is the body of the candlestick pattern where it is now a red body. When we plot all these individual candlestick patterns on a chart, we are able to predict whether or not a stock will go up. Of course, just like any other technical indicator, candlestick pattern is a predictive tool, but it is not 100% accurate as nothing can predict the stock market with 100% accuracy.
