Recognized Bullish Chart Patterns
Bullish Hammer Timeframe: 5 Hours
Reliability: Low
A reversal pattern.
During a downtrend, there is a sell off after the candle starts. However, the candle closes at or near its high. This signifies a weakening of the previous bearish sentiment. The longer the lower shadow, the smaller the upper shadow, and the smaller the real body, the more significant the pattern is. White real body is more bullish than black body.
Recognized Bearish Chart Patterns
Dark Cloud Cover Timeframe: Weekly
Reliability: High
A reversal pattern.
During an uptrend, the first candlestick is a long white one. The second candlestick is black with an open above the high of the previous candlestick and close within but below the midpoint of the first candlestick’s body. The Dark Cloud Cover pattern suggests an opportunity for the shorts to capitalize on the next candlestick’s open. It is a warning sign for bullish investors. The greater the penetration of the first candlestick by the second and the higher the volume is on the second candle, the more significant this pattern is. In addition, if the second body opens above a major resistance level - it may indicate a strong reversal. The Dark Cloud Cover pattern is the opposite of the Piercing line pattern.

Wow you got mate. Janet Yellen's comments causing a bear market. Ha ha ha!. The markets are back off to the races with low rates driving more money into stocks. But eventually the music will stop, just not yet. Oil dependent stocks are really lookin' good. Oil, lower by the day due to Mid East and appreciating US$... so stock reliant on cheap oil AND exposure to the US economy are the ones to target. That equals US airlines. Lower fuel means greatly reduced Y.O.Y costs for airlines, combined with higher demand due to higher US GDP = price rockets under the stock prices of major U.S airlines
