Hammer Candlesticks

Big Idea: Hammer candles are helpful for traders to find indications of a bullish reversal. They look like short bodies with long wicks to indicate a large amount of buying or selling occurred before the close of that specific timeframe. Two different types of hammer candles are regular hammer candles and inverted hammer candles.
