Doji Pattern Indicator

Doji Description.

The Doji candlestick is one of the most watched patterns by traders. Why? Because often it signals a change in direction or sentiment in the price. The structure of the Doji candlestick is showing indecision. The price moves up and down to test a high and low during the session, then closes near its open price. Creating a small thin body with long wicks above and below. The price action is telling you that the market does not know whether the volume lies at higher or lower prices.

More About This Pattern

If you spot a Doji candelstick in an upwards trend, then it could be a good place to watch for a reversal in your stocks.

Alternatively if the stock you're watching is falling, and a Doji appears, keep an eye for signs that a bottom is forming. It could be a sharp reversal, or a bottom pattern. Be aware that the risk is also in the trend continuation. The market may find more volume in the current direction after this small period of indecision.
