Engulfing Pattern Indicator

Engulfing Description.

An engulfing candlestick pattern can be bullish or bearish. The principle of the pattern works in exactly the same way for either direction. So for this explanation lets focus on the bullish engulfing cnadlestick. The characteristic is a gap down at the open, which is below the close price of the previous day. The candle may either reverse from that point, or try a slightly lower test before reversing, then end the day with a close above the high of the previous day. Thus todays whole candle "engulfs" yesterdays, with a low beyond yesterdays low, and a high beyond yesterdays high.

More About This Pattern

A bullish engulfing candlestick can show you a massive shift in sentiment and volume. It is the eact same thing in reverse for a bearish engulfing pattern. If you get a bearish engulfing candlestick at the top of a recent rise, be aware it could be a point where sentiment has changed.

Often these types of patterns are usually formed from unexpected news or events surrounding a stock you watch, or an economic change (such as interest rates) may have an dramatic reversal effect on currencies and commodities prices.
