Candlestick reversal bar confirmation

Gud day,

Thanks for your assistance. pls assist me in confirming reversals from candlestick

bars apart from the one in you tutorials;

Word to the wise� just because you see a hammer form in a downtrend doesn�t mean you automatically place a buy order! More bullish confirmation is needed before it�s safe to pull the trigger. A good confirmation example would be to wait for a white candlestick to close above the open of the candlestick on the left side of the hammer.


I take it here that you mean my thread on Candlestick trading.

You are correct in what you say about needing more confirmation.

I only trade 2 and 3 candle patterns and even then I use only 4 of these patterns.
I do not trade single candles - not ever.

I trade evening star, dark cloud, engulfing (both ways) and 3 green soldiers.
I only trade these on the Bollinger band extremes.
This adds confirmation.

Still, you are welcome to look at my thread :
