Japanese Candlestick Charts
Looking at the chart - Each day is represented by a candle, which can be green or red.
A candle is made up of two parts, the body (thick part) and the wick (thin line). The
body of the candle shows the open and closing price of the security. If the security
closed higher than where it opened, the candle is green. In this case the security
opened at the bottom of the body, and closed at the top of the body. On the other hand,
if the security closed lower than it opened, the candle is denoted red. In this instance,
the security opened at the top of the body and closed at the bottom. The small wick that
you may see coming out of the top or the bottom of the body of the candle shows the
intra-day highs and lows. If there is no wick coming out of the top or bottom of the candle,
the security either opened or closed at its high or low for the day.
We use candlestick charts because unlike other charting methods, candlesticks show momentum
and the emotion behind the market. Every day we do a technical analysis of the market using
these charts. By identifying certain charting patterns, trends, and using support/resistance
levels, we can get a lot of insight as to the direction of the market and when we may see a reversal.
