With buyers stepping in after the plunge, there is a chance for bulls to stop the downside with a bullish reversal candlestick setup. Learn more about the potential setup and find out if it’s “hammer time”. A Bullish Hammer Could Put A Stop To The Bear Market You wouldn’t necessarily know it by the ultra bearish sentiment or the recent plunge and resulting panic across the crypto market.

Homna was a rice trader and wrote the first ever book in market psychology. Candlesticks are comprised of a body and shadow, often called a wick. They are typically depicted as red and green, or white and black (open and closed). Each candle includes information on the open, close, low, and high of the trading session it represents. How the candle opens, closes, and the highs and lows set during the session will shape the candle, and often provide information about what might be going on in the market — and what might come next.
