Although not in the green yet, CMF showed constant improvement and moved into positive territory a week later.

Bullish Engulfing The bullish engulfing pattern consists of two candlesticks, the first black and the second white. The size of the black candlestick is not that important, but it should not be a doji which would be relatively easy to engulf.

The second should be a long white candlestick — the bigger it is, the more bullish. The white body must totally engulf the body of the first black candlestick. Ideally, though not necessarily, the white body would engulf the shadows as well. Although shadows are permitted, they are usually small or nonexistent on both candlesticks. After a decline, the second white candlestick begins to form when selling pressure causes the security to open below the previous close.

Buyers step in after the open and push prices above the previous open for a strong finish and potential short-term reversal.

Generally, the larger the white candlestick and the greater the engulfing, the more bullish the reversal. Further strength is required to provide bullish confirmation of this reversal pattern. The first formed in early January after a sharp decline that took the stock well below its day exponential moving average EMA.

The stock declined below its day EMA and found support from its earlier gap up. A bullish engulfing pattern formed and was confirmed the next day with a strong follow-up advance. The Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern is similar to the outside reversal chart pattern , but does not require the entire range high and low to be engulfed, just the open and close. Piercing Pattern The piercing pattern is made up of two candlesticks, the first black and the second white.

Both candlesticks should have fairly large bodies and the shadows are usually, but not necessarily, small or nonexistent. The white candlestick must open below the previous close and close above the midpoint of the black candlestick's body.

A close below the midpoint might qualify as a reversal, but would not be considered as bullish. Just as with the bullish engulfing pattern, selling pressure forces the security to open below the previous close, indicating that sellers still have the upper hand on the open.

However, buyers step in after the open to push the security higher and it closes above the midpoint of the previous black candlestick's body.

The stock first touched 40 in early April with a long lower shadow. After a bounce, the stock tested support around 40 again in mid-April and formed a piercing pattern. The piercing pattern was confirmed the very next day with a strong advance above Even though there was a setback after confirmation, the stock remained above support and advanced above Also notice the morning doji star in late May.

There are four possible combinations: Whether they are bullish reversal or bearish reversal patterns, all harami look the same. Their bullish or bearish nature depends on the preceding trend. Harami are considered potential bullish reversals after a decline and potential bearish reversals after an advance.

No matter what the color of the first candlestick, the smaller the body of the second candlestick is, the more likely the reversal. If the small candlestick is a doji, the chances of a reversal increase. Because the first candlestick has a large body, it implies that the bullish reversal pattern would be stronger if this body were white. The long white candlestick shows a sudden and sustained resurgence of buying pressure.

The small candlestick afterwards indicates consolidation. The first long black candlestick signals that significant selling pressure remains and could indicate capitulation. The small candlestick immediately following forms with a gap up on the open, indicating a sudden increase in buying pressure and potential reversal.
