In this video, I discuss how candlestick charts work, and how traders can use them to swing trade, as well as find local market tops and bottoms.
I begin by discussing basic candlestick terminology, including bodies, shadows/wicks, highs, lows, etc.
Then I move on to discuss particular candlestick chart patterns, including the doji, the hammer, the shooting star, and how to incorporate these powerful patterns into your trading.
I especially like candlestick patterns since you can use them on multiple timeframes, including intraday, daily, and weekly charts.
