Bulkowski's Top 10 Performing Candlesticks

 

The information on this page is derived from my book, Encyclopedia of Candlestick ChartsEncyclopedia of Candlestick Charts book., pictured on the right.

Once you click on a link, you will be taken to a page describing the candlestick. The glossary defines the terms used on the individual candlestick pages, but the black arrow on the figure shows which way price usually moves after the candlestick pattern ends.

The top 10 performing candlesticks appear below, based on their overall performance rank in both bull and bear markets.
