Candle Stick Pattern Indicator

Automatic Detection of Candle Stick Patterns on Stocks

Candle stick patterns on stock charts can define a trading set up. Certain types of pattern tell a story in the price, and by using them you are able to make trading decisions on the movement which follows. Some will only signal one possible direction, however, others can determine both bullish and bearish directions depending on the price action which preceded the pattern.

Our pattern indicator scans the markets each night, looking for stocks whose movements fall into any pattern category. It then publishes those patterns on charts, and also in table data, for your pleasure.
