Doji and Doji Variations

Doji

The Doji is one of the most informative signals in Candlestick trading and is comprised of one candle. It forms when the open and close occur at the same level (or very close) in a specific time-frame.

In order for a doji signal to be valid it must meet two conditions. First, the open and the close of the stock must be almost at the same price level (as stated above). Second, there must be an upper shadow or a lower shadow, or both.

When a doji candlestick is formed, a cross formation appears (as seen above) with the horizontal line representing the open and close occurring at the same level. The vertical line on the doji candlestick chart represents the total trading range during that time-frame. This clearly indicates that the bulls and the bears are at an equilibrium signifying a state of indecision. When this occurs the trader should keep an eye out for a trend reversal. From bullish to bearish or bearish to bullish.
There are three special types of Doji’s explained below
