Market Direction:


The appearance of a candlestick signal has significant ramifications. The signals have been identified throughout the centuries to indicate there has been a change of investor sentiment. But how do you evaluate a selling day in an uptrend where everything has sold off significantly? The analysis remains very simple. A candlestick reversal signal, in an uptrend, has significant meaning. A selling day in an uptrend, that is not a candlestick reversal signal, also has some relevant meaning. As witnessed in the Dow yesterday, the markets sold off relatively hard. The markets had been moving back up in a bullish trend. What did the selling day yesterday signify? There will be pullback days in up trends. If yesterday's pattern/signal formation had any relevance as far as affecting the trend price, the Japanese Rice traders would have explainrd  its meaning centuries ago.


Candlestick investors can use the signals to their advantage. They can also use the knowledge that the lack of a signal has a different meaning. Yesterday's selling was merely a selling day during an uptrend. As noted in today's trading, most of the selling of yesterday was offset, indicating the uptrend is still in progress. Understanding what makes the 12 major signals work so efficiently for identifying trend reversals allows an investor also evaluate accurately that a trend has not reverse when a selling day does not produce a candlestick reversal signal.
