The Doji Festival

One of the common candlestick patterns that Dip Buyers look for is the Hammer. Although there are some wide varying definitions for what this looks like, here are some common examples:

One way to really enhance this pattern is to find 2 consecutive days with this Doji pattern. One such chart I reviewed this morning has it:

This Daily chart of FL (Foot Locker) shows 2 Dojis formed on the 50 day simple moving average. If no position, look for a continued hold above this moving average and enter according to your trade profile & system.

Trade ’em well.
