Section 1: Introduction to Japanese Candlesticks
Introduction
Preview
02:00
03:30

Japanese candlesticks have been used by Japanese rice traders since the 1700s. The father of Japanese candlesticks, Munehisa Homma, a rice trader from Sakata (Japan), developed this method of reading charts that was unique and incredibly successful. It was so successful that made Homma and those who followed his method, legendarily wealthy. In the 1800s the system was further refined and improved. 300 years later, candlestick charts are still used from traders and investors around the world.

Line charts are the most basic and the most common charts used by everyday people. Examples of line charts are electric and gas usage bills as well as phone minute usage bills, etc. Although the line chart is useful to visually recognize the general price trend, the information provided by the line chart is limited.

01:25

The bar chart is the most commonly used chart by traders and investors around the world. The bar chart displays a series of vertical lines and horizontal dashes. The four important price values (open, high, low, close) are displayed, which makes bar charts very useful for trading.

02:46

Candlestick charts are similar to the bar charts as they both display the complete trading range by showing the four important price values: open, high, low, close (OHLC). The main difference is in the body of the chart. The size and the color of the body, and the length of the shadows (vertical lines above and below the body) reveal very important information regarding the current market direction, possible market reversals and the strength of future price movements.

02:52

The visual illustration of candlestick charts gives investors and traders an advantage over traditional western methods of trading.

We are here to help and answer your questions related to the course.

We encourage you to post them in the discussion session so that everyone can benefit from it.

Section 2: The Driving Force of the Market
05:18

What makes the price of stocks or any other trading security go up and down? Supply and demand. Supply and demand is the foundation of market economy. Supply is the quantity of stock (or trading securities) offered in the market place and represents the sellers. Demand is the quantity of a stock (or trading securities). Sellers and buyers are the yin and yang of the market.

03:21

In this lesson we will talk about support and resistance.

The equation of demand and supply, the battle between bulls and bears, is what creates the market. When the bulls are in control, demand and consequentially price, increases. When the bears are in control, supply and consequentially price, decreases.

02:49

In this lesson we will talk about how to identify and draw lines of support and resistance.

Lateral lines of support and resistance can be drawn using any interval of time (5 min chart, 10 min chart, hourly, daily, weekly and monthly). The time frame to choose depends on whether you are a day trader, a swing trader or an investor. Generally, daily charts, and at times weekly or monthly charts, are most useful when looking at support and resistance.

Section 3: Emotions and Price
03:21

The equation of supply and demand, the battle between bears and bulls, is what creates the market. When the bulls are in control, demand and consequentially price, increases. When the bears are in control, supply and consequentially price, decreases. Even though the market equations are made of the two element of supply and demand, there is an additional ingredient that has an even greater influence: investors’ perception and emotions.

04:17

The investors’ perception and their optimistic or a pessimistic view of market conditions, stock or any other trading security, is referred to as investors’ sentiment of emotions and decision-making. Investors’ sentiment and more specifically the emotion of fear and greed are the most important elements of the market equation.What indicators or piece of technology are going to be used to determine the dominating investors’ sentiment of emotions and decision-making during a specific period of time? The answer is candlestick reversal and continuation patterns.

Section 4: Two Powerful Bullish Candlestick Patterns - Hammer & Engulfing
02:55

The hammer is essentially a dragonfly doji formation with a slightly bigger body.  The hammer patterned is formed when the following two conditions are present:

1)    The length of the lower shadow must be at least twice the size of the body of the candle.  The longer the shadow, the stronger the potential for a reversal.

2)    The perfect hammer has no upper shadow.  However, if there is a very small upper shadow above the body of the candle, the formation is still considered a hammer pattern.

19:56

In this lesson we look at several charts to see how the hammer gave us the signal when it was time to buy and enter a long position.

The engulfing pattern usually occurs at the end of a trend.  The pattern is made of two candles of opposite colors.  Generally the color of the first candle is the same as the color of the current marker direction.  The exception to the rule is when the first candle is a doji, in which case the color is irrelevant.

The bullish engulfing pattern is formed at the bottom of a downtrend or after a series of red candles.

The pattern is made of two candles:

  • The first candle of the bullish engulfing pattern should be red, unless the first candle is a doji, in which case the color is irrelevant.
  • The second candle should be green.
  • The price of the second candle should open below the closing price of the first candle.
  • The price of the second candle should close above the opening price of the first candle

Profitable Candlestick Trading Method: 10 Primary Reversals is a course designed to teach you the visual power of Japanese candlesticks when trading in the stock market.  

In this course you will learn how to take advantage of potential price movements before they appear on the chart. We will talk in detail about price action, volume activity, chart reading, bullish and bearish sentiment, what it means to go long and short, and so much more! 

This course is based on the ancient method of trading known as Japanese candlesticks and offers an in-depth view of the ten primary candlestick reversal patterns as follows: 

  1. doji
  2. hammer
  3. engulfing
  4. harami
  5. kicker 
  6. piercing line
  7. dark cloud
  8. morning star
  9. evening star 
  10. shooting star

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Reading charts, recognizing pattern formations, understanding price action, and anticipating future price movements is the goal of the trader.  

Successful traders identify those potential movements and position themselves accordingly before the general market sees them.  Candlestick analysis, combined with the science of technical analysis, makes the observation and recognition of those patterns possible.  The combination of these two types of analysis can give you the confidence you need when entering trades, and when it is time to get out of trades and protect your profits. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In this course we reveal all the hidden secrets about Japanese candlesticks.

  • The first candle of the bearish engulfing pattern should be green, unless the first candle is a doji, in which case the color is irrelevant.
  • The second candle should be red.
  • The price of the second candle should open above the closing price of the first candle.
  • The price of the second candle should close below the opening price of the first candle.
