A Doji candlestick will provide very important information on its own or together as part of signals from other candlestick formations. It forms when a security's open and close price are equal. The length of the upper and lower shadows can vary and the resulting candlestick sometimes looks like a cross, inverted cross or a plus sign. The best formation is when the open and close prices are equal, but this is not necessary.
A Doji formed alone implies that the trend is neutral and bullish or bearish confirmations are based on preceding price action and future confirmation.
