How to identify a bullish bar

Let us use some common sense ideas to identify what a bullish bar may look like.

When the market closes above the previous close the message is of strength.

When the market closes above the open of the day, again a message of strength comes in.

When the market makes an intraday low, recovers from the low to close higher, thus making a long lower shadow, the pattern would be considered bullish because a test of low probably took place.

A pattern that is not bullish is a candle with long upper shadows.

The best way to enter the market after a bullish candle is to wait for some sign of strength. When the market trades above the high of the bullish candle such a sign is available.

Hi Sudarsanji..

There is a fundamental reason why
most people can't follow a trading system
with discipline.

Terry Burnham has explained it nicely in his book
"Mean Markets And Lizard Brains"
