Japanese Candlestick Analysis

Bearish Engulfing Japanese Candlestick PatternThe image to the left represents a generic image of a Bearish Engulfing Japanese Candlestick price action pattern and should only be used for definition purpose to differentiate this pattern from other generic Japanese Candlestick patterns. This price action pattern will form at the top of a trend as a reversal or warning of price contraction (will go sideways). In addition, the Bearish Engulfing Japanese Candlestick price action pattern can signal failed counter-thrusts (lower highs) or double tops.

Also, Japanese Candlestick patterns do not define the price action. Instead, you should have already defined the price action (understand the price action) prior to the appearance of any Japanese Candlestick patterns.

More Info about #FuturesTrades  Trader A identifies a bearish engulfing Japanese Candlestick pattern and concludes the price action must be bearish. Trader A then uses the bearish engulfing pattern trade signal as a trade entry strategy into the price action.

More Info about #FuturesTrades  Trader B identifies a price action and then determines it's bearish via a method not related to Japanese Candlestick analysis. In addition, trader B then identifies a bearish engulfing Japanese Candlestick pattern signal as a trade entry strategy into the bearish price action.

More Info about #FuturesTrades  Results: Statistically the bearish engulfing Japanese Candlestick price action pattern will be more profitable and more reliable for trader B in comparison to trader A. 

Here's some basic price action information for the generic Bearish Engulfing Japanese Candlestick price action pattern.

 Dark interval (open > close) will engulf the body of the prior interval that can be a white interval (close1 > open1) or a doji (close1 = open1). 

 There interaction is a open > close1 and close < open1 resulting in the engulfing price action.

 Price rising for several intervals prior to the white interval (close1 > open1) or doji (close1 = open1) and you can define "price rising" via whatever you want.

The generic Bearish Engulfing Japanese Candlestick price action pattern by itself is not reliable if used as explained in most typical Japanese Candlestick book or online discussions which is the exact same way that most system designers, programmers, backtesters or academia (researchers) approach their analysis of the pattern because the generic pattern is very simple to code. However, profitable traders of the Bearish Engulfing Japanese Candlestick price pattern do not use the generic version nor do they use this pattern all by itself with no other market inputs.

With that said, you can easily increase the reliability of this particular Japanese Candlestick pattern via merging the price action of the Bearish Engulfing Japanese Candlestick pattern with trading methods involving changes in supply/demand and changes in volatility such as our WRB Analysis Tutorials...a method that gives you the critical understanding of the price action called context prior to the appearance of any Japanese Candlestick patterns for trading.

 WRB interval must be the interval that's engulfing or is the interval before the interval that's being engulfed.

 WRB interval is only via the WRB Analysis Tutorials.

 Generic Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern must occur within a WRB Zone...a WRB Zone described in the WRB Analysis Tutorials.

Note: WRB Analysis Tutorials can be applied to bar charts, constant tick charts, volume based charts or candlestick charts.

Further, if you want to increase the reliability more, we highly recommend you replace the generic Bearish Engulfing candlestick price pattern and use our advance custom Japanese Candlestick price action pattern strategies via the Advance Japanese Candlestick Trading Report (AJCTR). However, the WRB Analysis Tutorials all by itself will help you understand the price action you're trading and that will result in a better understanding of the Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern as in occurs within the context of WRB Analysis. Yet, the AJCTR trade strategies will give you a more reliable trade management after entry that includes stop/loss management, trailing stops profit targets and exit signal. In addition via the AJCTR, we provide support for those that need helping in designing their own custom designed Bearish Engulfing Japanese Candlestick price action patterns merged with WRB Analysis.

"Once a trend starts, the odds are that it will continue. Every student of science or engineering will recognize that this is nothing more than Newton's First Law of Motion, which says, Every body continues in a state of rest or of uniform motion in a straight line unless it is compelled to change that state by forces applied to it. Simply said, it is easier for a market to continue its direction than to reverse its direction." --Gregory L. Morris
