How to Read Candlestick?
Reading the Candlestick is damn very easy.
The golden rule of the candlestick says:
If the opening price is higher than the closing price then a Red candle is formed.
Similarly, If the closing price is higher than the opening price then a green candle is formed.
Suppose The price of Sugar today (Opening Price) is Rs. 45 which is greater than yesterday’s price (Closing Price) of Rs. 43.
Now, If you are an intelligent seller what will you try to do is SELL more and more. because of which a very strong Red candle will appear.
Similarly, Suppose The price of Sugar today (Opening Price) is Rs. 43 which is lower than yesterday’s price (Closing Price) of Rs. 45.
Now, If you are an intelligent buyer what will you try to do is BUY more and more. because of which a very strong Green candle will appear.
