Trading For Beginners 101- The Most Powerful Candlestick Patterns Use In Crypto (P2)

Following part 1, in part 2 we will guide and practice some single candlestick patterns capable of signaling reversals. Through these candlesticks, you can predict the next trend and prepare yourself a perfect trading plan. Let’s go with Coincu.

4) HammerBullish Hammer

The structure of the Hammer candlestick pattern is very simple, including only 1 candle shaped like a “hammer”. The candle body is quite small, the upper shadow is very small or absent and the lower shadow is very long – the size must be at least 2 or 3 times the body of the candle.

Hammer candlesticks usually appear at the end of a downtrend, showing that sellers seem to have taken full control of the market, pushing the price down. However, the appearance of the Hammer candle does not mean that the buyers have gained control, but simply that the market is gradually increasing again, predicting that the downtrend will gradually weaken and the possibility of a high price will soon come. increase again.

How to trade with Hammer

  • The color of the candle can be green (bullish) or red (bearish). However, with the Hammer candlestick pattern, the bullish candle will give a stronger and more reliable reversal signal.
  • Hammer candlesticks usually occur at the end of a downtrend and also the bottom of that downtrend.
  • If the next candle after the hammer is a bullish candle, the reversal signal will be reinforced.

In a downtrend, there is a Hammer with strong buying volume. The small real body and upper shadow long showed that the bears pushed the price lower but the bulls were able to resist this selling pressure and push the price back up, causing the closing price to close with the opening price. Besides, before you enter an order, you need to combine more signals confirming new trends before you place an order.

  • Entry long: Open price of next candle
  • Stoploss: Below lower shadow
  • Take profit: Nearest Resistance

5) Hanging manBearish Hammer

When the market is in an uptrend and bulls are in control however the bulls are no longer strong enough to sustain the previous upward momentum then a hanging man appears at the top of an uptrend or in an area of strong resistance. This pattern shows that bears have managed to make a comeback and they are trying to break the stronghold of the bulls and close at the lowest price point.

The first need to correctly recognize the Hanging man candle:

  • A candle has a lower shadow that is at least twice as long as the body
  • Short or don’t have upper shadow
  • The color of the candle is not important but if it is red (bearish candle) then the possibility of falling will be stronger than that of the green body (bullish candle)

In an uptrend (revival), a Hanging man candle appeared, here showing that the buying power is no longer as strong and overwhelming as the previous ones. The bears jumped in and pulled the price low. Combined with volume, we can wait for the next candle to close and place a short order or you can immediately place a short order at the opening price of the next candle. Hanging man in red color adds more certainty to the short order.

  • Entry short: Open price of next candle
  • Stoploss: Above the upper shadow
  • Take profit: Nearest support zone

6) Inverted hammer

A inverted hammer is a single candlestick pattern with a small body and a long upside wick. In this pattern, the closing price remains above the opening price, pointing out a buying pressure at closing. The bullish inverted hammer appears after a prolonged downward pressure and indicates a buying possibility. The success rate of this pattern depends on the body and the wick’s length.

Long upper shadow shows that the bulls are trying to push the price up. Meanwhile, the sellers are still exerting selling pressure but this is a reversible signal. In this case the bulls still have enough strength to keep the closing price close to the opening price, which means that the price cannot continue to decline like the previous trend. This shows that when the sellers can no longer push the price down, it means that everyone who wants to sell has already sold out and the market no longer wants to sell. If no one wants to sell anymore who will be left? The answer is the bulls.

Opening a long order with R:R 1:3

  • Entry Long: Open price of next candle
  • Stoploss: Below the lower shadow
  • Take profit: Nearest resistance zone or TP as your ratio want.

7) Shooting Star

Shooting Star is a bearish reversal pattern with the same structure as an Inverted Hammer, but it occurs when the price is rising. This shows that the bears are starting to prevail over the bulls in the uptrend and the price is likely to turn down again.

For a candlestick to be considered a shooting star, the formation must appear during a price advance. Also, the distance between the highest price of the day and the opening price must be more than twice as large as the shooting star’s body. There should be little to no shadow below the real body.

In this example, the price of NEAR is rising in an uptrend. The uptrend accelerates just prior to the formation of a shooting star. The shooting star shows the price opened and went higher (upper shadow) then closed near the open. The following day closed lower, helping to confirm a potential price move lower. The high of the shooting star was not exceeded and the price moved within a downtrend for the next month. If trading this pattern, the trader could sell any long positions they were in once the confirmation candle was in place.

Opening a short order with R:R 1:4

  • Entry short: Open price of next candle
  • Stoploss: above the upper shadow
  • Take profit: Nearest support zone.

Verdict

A pattern that is generated by just a single candle is termed as a single candlestick pattern. Typically, traders use the 1-day candlestick chart to identify a single candlestick pattern. In the following sections, I will introduce a few more typical single candles and candlestick patterns that can be used to identify trend reversals.
