The Best Candlestick Patterns Every Trader Should Know

Here are the 12 candlestick patterns that every trader should know and train themselves to spot. You can trade these patterns by itself without any indicators. In my research I have found them to be extremely powerful in predicting reversal in stocks. If you plan to trade them, they can actually be very good risk reward type of setups.

I have divided them into

  • Bullish Reversal Patterns
  • Bearish Reversal Patterns

They are actually the opposite of each other and therefore if you learn one, you will be very quick to learn their opposite counterpart. If you only learn 12 candlestick patterns in your whole trading career, these candlestick patterns are all you need to survive and make money in the markets.

To learn more about the patterns in detail please visit the Japanese Candlesticks Page in the stock market course.
