5 Bullish Candlestick Patterns
Below are 5 types of bullish candlestick patterns-
Hammer is a bullish reversal candlestick pattern that occurs at the bottom of a downtrend.
This bullish candlestick pattern is formed when the open and low prices are almost the same. This pattern should consist of a lower shadow which is twice as long as the real body.
When identifying this pattern, we should remember that the prior trend is a downtrend.
This pattern is formed when the real body is small along with a long lower shadow which shows that bears were trying to push down the prices but they were unable to do so.
A bullish candlestick should be formed after the Hammer, which confirms that the bullish reversal has taken place.

2. The Piercing Pattern
A piercing pattern is a candlestick pattern that gives us potential bullish reversal signs and it is formed near the support levels at the end of a downtrend.
This pattern is made of two candlesticks, the first one is a bearish candlestick, and the second one is a bullish candlestick.
The bearish candlestick should have a large real body, and the second bullish candlestick should be below the low of the previous candlestick and should close above the middle of the real body of the first candlestick.
Investors must look at a few characteristics when they trade with this bullish candlestick pattern- piercing pattern:
Firstly, the trend should be a downtrend, as the piercing pattern is a bullish reversal pattern.
Secondly, the length of the candlestick plays an important role in determining the force with which the reversal will take place.
The gap down between the bearish and bullish candlesticks indicates how powerful the trend reversal will be.
Fourthly, the bullish candlestick should close more than the midpoint of the previous bearish candlestick.
Lastly, the bearish, as well as the bullish candlestick, should have larger bodies.
