    What Is The Hammer Candlestick Pattern?

    The Hammer is a bullish reversal pattern that forms after a decline in price after a bear run. Hammers can also mark bottoms or support levels if you identify a hammer pattern while using the cTrader Support & Resistance Tool you will have a higher probability of success. 


    The low of the long lower shadow denotes that the sellers have driven the prices down during the session and a strong strong finish will indicate that the buyer has regained control towards the end of the session. Alone this is not a strong enough indication to enter a trade, the hammer candle will require additional bullish confirmation, the trader will need to analyse the surrounding candles, the volume traded as well as confirm strong support & resistance levels.
