Morning Star Candlestick


1. Bullish Morning Star


2. Bearish Morning Star Pattern









These are Morning Star Candlesticks. On the left we have Bullish morning star candlestick.

At first we have a strong bullish candle, followed by an equal sized long tail doji candle and lastly a bearish candle. The doji candle in the center suggests that the bulls have entered into the markets and push the price down although failed to move price up but the important part over here is Bears cannot pull price any lower than previous candlestick. This suggest that they are losing control and momentum. Strong Bullish candle after doji candle confirms that bulls have gain control, so we can predict a raise in the price.

2. Bearish Morning Star is simply the inverse of bullish morning star, note that doji is upside down in this.
