Reversal Candle Patterns in USD/JPY

This is far from your normal clean reversal pattern. You’ve got four indecision candles and the last one actually makes a new low. A lot of newbie traders would look at this and not be sure what to do.

However, it is quite simple. Despite the messiness of these candles all we are seeing here is a period of indecision. The bulls and the bears are fighting it out, sometimes the bulls win sometimes the bears, but all their victories are short lived.

What we do know, for certain, is up until five candles ago the bears were in complete control of the market. However, for the past four candles, the bulls have been fighting back. It makes sense that we would see a reversal here.
