    All Forex traders come across the Price Action at some point and this is not a mere chart analysis technique but the entire system for defining the possible future price movement direction. The Engulfing pattern is when the body and shadows of a bar completely engulf the body and shadows of the previous bar.


    There are two types of patterns the software detects



    What Is an Engulfing Candlestick Pattern?

    A bullish engulfing pattern is characterized by a bullish candle whose body, the open and close engulfs the previous candle's body. Conversely, a bearish engulfing pattern is characterized by a bearish candle whose body engulfs the previous candle's body.

    Rules of the Engulfing Pattern

    • It is required to operate with this pattern on higher timeframes: H4, D1.
    • For a more refined entry, additional elements of graphical analysis should be applied, such as trendlines, support/resistance levels, Fibonacci levels, other Price Action patterns, etc.
    • Use pending orders to avoid premature or false market entries.
    • Patterns repeated in flat trading should not be used as a signal for entering the market.

     Example Trade Setup for a Bearish Engulfing Pattern
