Answers to Weekly Review of the US Economy Review Article Questions 6-7-20

As a result of the widespread protest in America, positive economic stimulus discussions in Europe, and the skyrocketing rise in the price of crude oil from negative 27 cents per barrel to $39 per barrel, the USD has taken a beating. The EUR/USD currency pair began its upward momentum Sunday afternoon on May 24, 2020 when a Bullish Harami Cross appeared on the daily EUR/USD chart.  Harami crosses on occasion precedes massive reversals. Even without taking technical analysis into consideration, the price of oil and positive economic developments in Europe was enough to influence a decline in the USD and an increase in major currencies, like the EUR. The pair gained over 500 pips by rising from the 1.0870s to the 1.1380s as of writing. Now a Bearish Shooting Star has appeared on the daily chart signaling that a strong reversal to the downside could occur. I believe that this downside reversal will occur as a result of the underlying fundamentals. However, if it doesn’t occur, I have a plan for that.

This candle is called a Bearish Shooting Star
Top Forex Reversal Patterns that Every Trader Should Know - Forex Training  Group

This candle is called a Bearish Shooting Star.

BEARISH SHOOTING STAR: This pattern consists of a white body followed by an Inverted Hammer that is characterized by a long upper shadow and a small body. It is similar in shape to the Bullish Inverted Hammer pattern but unlike it, the Shooting Star appears in an uptrend and signals a bearish reversal. more...

Definition

This pattern consists of a white body followed by an Inverted Hammer that is characterized by a long upper shadow and a small body. It is similar in shape to the Bullish Inverted Hammer pattern but unlike it, the Shooting Star appears in an uptrend and signals a bearish reversal.

Recognition Criteria

1. The market is characterized by a prevailing uptrend.
2. The first day of the pattern is a white candlestick.
3. On the second day, a small body at the lower end of the trading range is observed. Color of this body is not important.
4. The upper shadow of this second candlestick should be at least twice as long as the body.
5. There is (almost) no lower shadow.

Pattern Requirements and Flexibility

The body of the Inverted Hammer should be small. The upper shadow must be at least twice as long as the body but not shorter than an average candlestick length. It is desired that there is no or a very tiny lower shadow. The top of the Inverted Hammer’s body should be higher than the preceding candlestick’s body.

Trader’s Behavior

The pattern occurs in a bullish background and the white candlestick that appears on the first day further supports the bullishness. On the second day, in which an Inverted Hammer is seen, market opens at or near its low. Then prices change direction and we see a rally. However, the bulls do not succeed in sustaining the rally during the rest of the day and prices finally close either at or near the low of the day. Certainly, this will cause some concern to any bulls holding profitable positions.

Sell/Stop Loss Levels

The confirmation level is defined as the low of the Inverted Hammer’s body. Prices should cross below this level for confirmation.

The stop loss level is defined as the last high. Following the bearish signal, if prices go up instead of going down, and close or make two consecutive daily highs above the stop loss level, while no bullish pattern is detected, then the stop loss is triggered.

BEARISH HANGING MAN: The pattern occurs at the top of a trend or during an uptrend. The name Hanging Man comes from the fact that the candlestick looks somewhat like a hanging man. It is a single candlestick pattern that has a long lower shadow and a small body at or very near the top of its daily trading range. more...

BEARISH BELT HOLD: Bearish Belt Hold is a single candlestick pattern, basically, a Black Opening Marubozu that occurs in an uptrend. It opens on the high of the day, and then prices begin to fall during the day against the overall trend of the market, which eventually stops with a close near the low, leaving a small shadow at the bottom of the candle. If longer bodies characterize the Belt Hold, then the resistance they offer against the trend will be even much stronger. more...

BEARISH ENGULFING: This pattern is characterized by a large black body engulfing a preceding smaller white body, which appears during an uptrend. The black body does not necessarily engulf the shadows of the white body but totally engulfs the body itself. This is an important top reversal signal. more...

BEARISH HARAMI: This pattern consists of a white body and a small black body that is completely inside the range of the white body. If an outline is drawn for the pattern, it looks like a pregnant woman. This is not a coincidence. “Harami” is an old Japanese word for “pregnant”. more...

BEARISH HARAMI CROSS: This is a major bearish reversal pattern, which is even more significant than a regular Bearish Harami. The outline again looks like a pregnant woman, as with the Bearish Harami Pattern. However, now the baby is a Doji. Basically, the pattern is characterized by a white body followed by a Doji that is completely inside the range of the prior white body. more...

BEARISH SHOOTING STAR: This pattern consists of a white body followed by an Inverted Hammer that is characterized by a long upper shadow and a small body. It is similar in shape to the Bullish Inverted Hammer pattern but unlike it, the Shooting Star appears in an uptrend and signals a bearish reversal. more...

BEARISH DARK CLOUD COVER: This is a top reversal pattern with two candlesticks. A white candlestick appears on the first day while an uptrend is in progress. The second day opens at a new high, with a gap up and closes more than halfway into the prior white body, leading to the formation of a strong black candlestick. more...

BEARISH DOJI STAR: This pattern appears in an uptrend and warns that the trend will change. It consists of a white candlestick and a Doji with a gap up at the opening. If the Doji is in the form of an Umbrella the pattern is called “Bearish Dragonfly Doji”. In case of an Inverted Umbrella it is called “Bearish Gravestone Doji”. more...

BEARISH MEETING LINE: This pattern occurs during an uptrend. The first day’s white candlestick is followed by a black candlestick that opens sharply higher and closes at the same level as the prior session’s close. It is similar to the Dark Cloud Cover pattern. However, the amount the second day drops is different. more...

BEARISH DESCENDING HAWK: This pattern is a small white body contained by a prior relatively long white body. It resembles the Harami pattern, except that both bodies are white. more...

BEARISH MATCHING HIGH: This pattern occurs when two white days appear with equal closes in an uptrend. It indicates a top has been reached, even though the new high was tested and there was no follow through, which is indicative of a good resistance price. more...

BEARISH KICKING: This pattern consists firstly of a white Marubozu and then a black Marubozu. After the white Marubozu, the market opens below the prior session’s opening, forming a gap between the two lines. more...

BEARISH ONE BLACK CROW: This pattern appears in an uptrend and consists of a white candlestick and a black candlestick in which the black candlestick opens below the preceding day’s close and closes below its open. The pattern looks similar to the Bearish Harami pattern. The only difference is that the second day closes lower, which stops the engulfing of the black body by the preceding white body. more...

BEARISH EVENING STAR: This is a three-candlestick pattern signaling a major top reversal. It is composed of a white candlestick followed by a short candlestick, which characteristically gaps up to form a star. Then we have a third black candlestick whose closing is well into the first session’s white body. This is a meaningful top pattern. more...

BEARISH EVENING DOJI STAR: This is a three-candlestick pattern signaling a major top reversal. It is composed of a white candlestick followed by a Doji, which characteristically gaps up to form a Doji Star. Then, we have a third black candlestick whose closing is well into the first session’s white real body. This is a meaningful top pattern. more...

BEARISH ABANDONED BABY: This is a three-candlestick pattern signaling a major top reversal. It is exactly the same as the Bearish Evening Doji Star with one important difference.

Its name comes from the second day of the pattern, which floats out on the chart by itself like an abandoned baby of the first and third days. more...

BEARISH TRI STAR: The pattern is a sequence of three Doji. The occurrence of this pattern is extremely rare, so when it occurs it should not be ignored. more...

However, the last day completely erases the limited price gains of up days and closes inside the gap between the first and second days. This suggests a short term reversal. more...
