Six bullish candlestick patterns
The first candle is a short red body that is completely engulfed by a larger green candle.

three-stick pattern: one short-bodied candle between a long red and a long green.
It signals that the selling pressure of the first day is subsiding, and a bull market is on the horizon.
Three white soldiers
strong bullish signal that occurs after a downtrend, and shows a steady advance of buying pressure.
Six bearish candlestick patterns
The hanging man is the bearish equivalent of a hammer; it has the same shape but forms at the end of an uptrend.
The large sell-off is often seen as an indication that the bulls are losing control of the market.
The shooting star is the same shape as the inverted hammer, but is formed in an uptrend: like a star falling to the ground.
A bearish engulfing pattern occurs at the end of an uptrend. The first candle has a small green body that is engulfed by a subsequent long red candle.
The evening star is a three-candlestick pattern that is the equivalent of the bullish morning star. It is formed of a short candle sandwiched between a long green candle and a large red candlestick.
It indicates the reversal of an uptrend, and is particularly strong when the third candlestick erases the gains of the first candle.
Three black crows
three consecutive long red candles with short or non-existent wicks. Each session opens at a similar price to the previous day, but selling pressures push the price lower and lower with each close.
sellers have overtaken the buyers during three successive trading days.
Dark cloud cover
bearish reversal – a black cloud over the previous day’s optimism. It comprises two candlesticks: a red candlestick which opens above the previous green body, and closes below its midpoint.
Four continuation candlestick patterns

Falling three methods
Three-method formation patterns are used to predict the continuation of a current trend, be it bearish or bullish.
The bearish pattern is called the ‘falling three methods’. It is formed of a long red body, followed by three small green bodies, and another red body – the green candles are all contained within the range of the bearish bodies.
Rising three methods
The opposite is true for the bullish pattern, called the ‘rising three methods’ candlestick pattern. It comprises of three short reds sandwiched within the range of two long greens. The pattern shows traders that, despite some selling pressure, buyers are retaining control of the market.
