They are rather subjective, you'll need to combine it with a variety of other techniques and indicators to get a solid idea of where a price may go. If you place trades solely on candlestick patterns its a very risky strategy in my opinion!
I am a novice like yourself so i have only placed a few trades, however i have blogged the most recent ones, you'll find a link to my FXbook on the blog as well where you can see the stats of all trades i have ever placed.
I'm assuming you're using stochastic and moving average? where can I download the scripts for these indicators? and where can I learn how to read these indicators and how it relates to the candlesticks? thanks. The one in pipschool is not very clear to me.
Well I switch indicators around but i always use Stochastic. I've not downloaded anything specifically, the software i use is from Oanda and it comes with a wide variety of indicators installed. Everything i have learnt is from this website, either in school or by looking around on the forums. Afraid i have no other specific links for you. You can always google search tutorials, try YouTube as well there are many videos to watch which may help explain if you get confused.
I think the combination of candlesticks and indicators is rather subjective (personal opinion) but for example if i see a shooting star candlestick and the stochastic is indicating that the pair is overbought, this is probably a good sign that the pair will go down, so its an opportunity for a sell position.
Honestly though, work through the babypips school. It really really helps.
