GBP/USD Candlestick Patterns

Recognized Bullish Chart Patterns
Bullish Engulfing Timeframe: Weekly
Reliability: Moderate
A reversal pattern.
During a downtrend, the Bullish Engulfing depicts an opening at a new low and closes at or above the previous candle’s open. This signifies that the downtrend has lost momentum and the bulls may be gaining strength. Factors increasing the pattern's effectiveness are:
1) The first candlestick has a small real body and the second has a large real body.
2) Pattern appears after protracted or very fast move.
3) Heavy volume on second real body.
4) The second candlestick engulfs more than one real body.
Morning Doji Star Timeframe: Weekly
Reliability: High
A reversal pattern.
During a downtrend, the market strengthens the bearish trend with a long black candlestick. 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 is given by the white third candlestick. The Morning Doji Star is a fully realized bullish Doji Star pattern. It is important reversal signal.
Recognized Bearish Chart Patterns
Downside Gap Three Methods Timeframe: Weekly
Reliability: Moderate
A continuation pattern.
A downtrend is followed by two long black candles with a gap downward between them. The third candlestick is a white candle, but one that closes the gap between the first two. This should be seen as support for the downward trend.
