Candlestick is no doubt one of the most important chapters for traders. therefore, it is very important that you should at least know the proper basics of the candlestick.
What is Candlestick?
Candlestick is also known as Japanese Candlestick has originated from Japan over 100 years ago even before the west countries developed the bar and figure charts.
The main face behind the Candlestick is the Japanese rice trader named Masaharu Homma.
He discovered that there was a strong link between the supply and demand of rice, and the emotions of the buyers.
Just like the bar chart, the candlestick shows the market high, low, open, close price for the day.
The candlestick has a wide part which is the body of the candle that represents the price range between the open and close of that day.

Suppose the price of the sugar today is Rs 40 which is greater than yesterday’s sugar price which was Rs 35.
Now, If you an intelligent seller you will try to SELL more and more. because of which Sellers will dominate the market and thus a Red | Seller | Bearish Candle will form.
2. Bullish or Green or Buyer Candle: Similarly, If the closing price is above the opening price then the green Candle is formed.
Suppose the price of the sugar today is Rs 35 which is lower than yesterday’s sugar price which was Rs 40.
Now, If you an intelligent buyer you will try to BUY more and more. because of which buyers will dominate the market and thus a green | buyer | Bullish Candle will form.
