Doji: Doji Candlestick example image from StockCharts.com Doji form when a security's open and close are virtually equal. The length of the upper and lower shadows can vary, and the resulting candlestick looks like, either, a cross, inverted cross, or plus sign.

The first day is characterized by a small body, followed by a day whose body completely engulfs the previous day's

A doji line that develops when the Doji is at, or very near, the low of the day.

Hammer: Hammer Candlestick example image from StockCharts.com Hammer candlesticks form when a security moves significantly lower after the open, but rallies to close well above the intraday low.

Hanging Man: Hanging Man Candlestick example image from StockCharts.com Hanging Man candlesticks form when a security moves significantly lower after the open, but rallies to close well above the intraday low.
