How to read and understand Japanese candlesticks

A candlestick represents price data for a fixed period of time. I am sure many of you already know this.

The length of the candlestick (range)

The range shows us how volatile the market was during the creation time of a candlestick. The longer the candle, the more volatile the market. The shorter the candle, the quieter the market.

Speaking of which, if you are using the Bollinger Bands indicator to measure the volatility of the market, now you can remove it. Because the candle already tells you what state the market is in. There is no need to ask for the help of any Indicator.

Candlestick body

The real body of the candlestick is where the dispute between the bulls and the bears takes place. It tells us who is winning, or drawing. The real body shows how strong that candle is.

If the candle closes higher than the open (green color), then you don’t need to care what happened during that time. You just need to know that the bulls are winning as a result. In contrast to the bearish candle (red color), the bears are in control of the market.

The bullish candle has a longer body, which means that the strength of the bulls outweighs the bears. Conversely, the longer the bearish candle, the bears are outpacing the bulls.

If the closing price is (nearly) equal to the opening price, this is a draw. The market simply hasn’t decided where it’s going. This is called a Doji candle, shaped like a plus sign (+) as shown above. Practice reading and understanding the meanings of candles instead of lengthy names.

After looking at a candle, you have to answer 2 questions.

  • Is the market going up or down?
  • Is that increase or decrease strong?

Upper shadow

The upper shadow represents the segment where the market has been up, but cannot break through that price zone. Because at that price, more sellers push the market down.

The upper shadow represents SELL FORCE. The longer the upper shadow, the stronger the selling force for the length of time the candle lasts.

Lower shadow

In contrast to the upper shadow, the lower shadow is the part of the market that has dropped, but cannot go lower. Simply put, there is buying power in that price zone pushing the price up. The longer the lower shadow, the stronger the buying power.

The upper and lower shadows of the candle are an important premise of the two concepts of price acceptance and rejection. The short shadow shows that the price has accepted to rise or fall. The long shadow represents a price refusal to move up, or a refusal to fall.
