Technical traders use candlestick patterns to help predict future price movements. This graph marks some commonly used candlestick patterns over recent market rates, and uses colors to show if the patterns are bullish, bearish, or neutral.
Candlestick patterns, like any other type of indicator, do not predict market movements correctly all the time. Do not make your trading decisions solely based on these patterns.
Note: Not all instruments (metals and CFDs in particular) are available in all regions.
