Candlesticks-same for currency as stocks?

OK, this is going to sound stupid. I originally started to study candlestick patterns in an interest to start trading stocks. I have since been moved to the midnight shift at work so the ability to trade currencies 24 hours a day intrigues me. I just entered the Babypips school.

Do the candlestick patterns and indicators that I have been studying regarding stocks mean the same thing in currency trading or do I need to seek out candlestick tutorials/books specific to currency trading?

If you can’t tell, I’m new at all this :o

You’re fine. Candlesticks patterns are the same for anything where the price moves due to supply and demand.

Stocks, commodities, forex, etc all have the same candle patterns on the charts.

Thanks Phil.
