Crude Oil Candlestick Patterns

Recognized Bullish Chart Patterns
Bullish doji Star Timeframe: Hourly
Reliability: Moderate
A reversal pattern.
During a downtrend, the market strengthens the bears with a long black candlestick and gaps open on the second one. However, the second candlestick trades within a small range and closes at or near its open. This scenario generally shows the potential for a rally, as many positions have been changed. Confirmation of the trend reversal would be a higher open on the next candlestick.
Recognized Bearish Chart Patterns
Engulfing Bearish Timeframe: Monthly
Reliability: Moderate
A reversal pattern.
Occurring during an uptrend, this pattern characterized by a large black real body, which engulfs a white real body (it doesn’t need to engulf the shadows). This signifies that the uptrend has been hurt and the bears may be gaining strength. The Engulfing indicator is also the first two candles of the Three Outside patterns. It is a major reversal signal. Factors that are increasing this signal’s reliability:
1) The first candlestick has a very small real body and the second candlestick a very large real body.
2) The pattern appears after a protracted or very fast move.
3) Heavy volume on the second black candlestick.
4) The second candlestick engulfs more than one real body.

Hello and greetings Brother Javed. Now that I have come down from the mountain I have had time to reflect on my experience. I now have a question for you, Sir. Today I noticed that you posted that you currently hold a short position which you took on at 103.50. I must say that I am rather confused here Sir Javed. All this time since you took on the short position, you failed to make any mention of it here to all of your trading brothers so that they follow you in your good fortune. It is only now when the price hits 98 that you make your disclosure. The reason that I am somewhat confused here is that on July 24th, Mr. Suneel posted on the board that he went short at 103 with 10 lots and price went to 101.90 and he was asking what he should do. You replied to him with your post that read: "Dear Suneel either exit or take a small risk by shifting your SL at 102.1". You can understand my confusion here, Brother Javed. Why would you suggest that Suneel exit at 101.90 when you were short at 103.50 and you were holding your position obviously believing that the price would move much lower - all the way down to 98 which we are at today. And now that we are at 98 NOW you disclose to everyone that you have been short since 103.50. Why now? Why not share your position when you took on the short position way back at 103.50? Today you say that you are still holding your shorts and are looking for guidance from Narinder as to what to do. But here again, I am confused. Yesterday Narinder posted a long signal at 99.50 with no stop loss and has not posted an exit to that trade so far. So, if you are listening to Narinder, you would be long right now and would be holding a huge loss in your account. But apparently you did not listen to him yesterday and yet are looking for his guidance today. If you respect Narinder's guidance then why listen to him today and not yesterday? I hope you can understand all of my confusion regarding your positions and reasoning on this issue. The clouds and air up in the mountain became so thin and smoggy that I need some clearing up on all of this. I thank you for sharing your comments with all of us here on the board and, be assured, they are well respected.
