Hallo, Sylvain Vervoort with technical analysis part 17. With this video we have a look at the candlestick bottom reversal patterns. We will discuss bullish patterns with the engulfing pattern, piercing line, bullish counter attack, bullish harami, morning star, hammer and inverted hammer, three white soldiers and more. Pay a visit to my website at stocata dot org and have a look at my new book “Capturing Profit with Technical Analysis”. The purpose of this video series is to teach you how to trade successfully applying technical analysis techniques.
Before looking at the bottom reversal patterns we have to define the rules for a bottom reversal to be a valid pattern.
In a downtrend, there is a small black body, not a doji, followed and enclosed by a bigger white body. Though not necessary, it is better when the white body also encloses the short shadows of the black candle. This is an engulfing bullish pattern. An exceptional occurrence at the end of a downtrend is a white body followed by a bigger black body; this is called a last engulfing pattern.
A piercing line is a bigger black body that is followed by a white body with a lower opening price than the low of the black body in a downtrend; however, the white candle closes above the midpoint of the black body. Confirmation is required.
A bullish counterattack is a bigger black candle in a downtrend, followed by a bigger white candle. Closing prices of both candles are at the same price level. Confirmation is needed.
A bullish harami in a downtrend, a white (but preferably a black) body followed by a small white or black candle that is preferably completely covered by the first candle body. A bottom reversal signal after confirmation. Black-white and black-black, called homing pigeon, combinations are the most common.
A bullish harami cross in a downtrend is a white but preferably a black body that is followed by a doji that is preferably completely covered by the first candle body. A bullish harami cross pattern needs confirmation.
A morning star is a bigger black body, followed by one or more small black or white bodies below the closing price of the first black body. The white candle that follows ideally lays 50% or more within the first black body and has a rising window with the previous candle body.
A morning doji star is a bigger black body, followed by one or more doji’s with a falling window below the closing price of the first black body. The white candle that follows ideally lays 50% or more within the first black body and has a rising window with the previous doji body. This is a stronger reversal signal than a morning star.
A bullish abandoned baby pattern is a morning doji star with a window between the doji and the black and white candle, resulting in an island reversal. The island can have more candles and more than one doji.
A hammer is a small white or black body close to the high price. It has a long shadow below with a minimum size of twice the height of the body. There is a very small shadow or no shadow at the top. A dragonfly doji is a specific version of the hammer pattern. Confirmation is required. A white body is more positive.
An inverted hammer is a small black but preferably a small white body near the low price. It has a long shadow above that is, at minimum, twice the size of the body. It only has a very small shadow or no shadow below. A gravestone doji is a specific version of the inverted hammer. A bottom reversal only after confirmation.
Three white soldiers are three white candlesticks with each bar having higher closing prices, close to the high of the bar. Opening prices of candles two and three are within the body of the previous candles. Many times, there will be a small reaction before the new uptrend is resumed.
This is the end of the most important candlestick bottom reversal patterns. Next video we will have a look at candlestick continuation patterns and we will also talk about some candlestick trading techniques.

Risk Disclosure: Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
Hypothetical Performance Disclosure: Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
