Bullish Engulfing

Bullish Engulfing Candle is formed with a combination of two candles. The second candle is to engulf and close above the first candle to be considered as a Bullish Engulfing candle. Some analysts/traders do not want to take first candle’s wick into account. However, if the second candle closes above the first candle’s wick, that is one good Bullish Engulfing Candle. A Bullish Engulfing Candle is considered as the strongest bullish reversal candle.

A Doji Candle is formed where the price finishes very close to the same level. Thus, the candle has no body or a very tiny body. A Doji Candle itself is not a strong bullish reversal candle. However, if it is produced at a strong level of support, the market often reverses and goes towards the North.
