Bulkowski's Top 10 Continuation 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.

Shown are the top ten performing candlestick patterns, based on performance of those that act as continuations of the prevailing price trend in a bull market.
