I don’t particularly trade too many different candlestick patterns. I find it confusing to use too many patterns in making a decision. It’s as if some people believe they can actually read the hidden message the price is trying to tell them rather than simply a high probability opportunity.
So they memorize as many patterns as possible without understanding why and in what context they may be effective in the first place. Some patterns are neither here nor there in their effectiveness and certainly not with-ought the context of support/resistance, moving averages, trends, and fundamentals that drive these trades in the first place.
