A Japanese candlestick pattern signaling a bullish reversal. An Inverted Hammer formed at the end of a downtrend or at a support area has bullish reversal implications. Traders enter the market with long positions but eventually the sellers’ pressure overcomes buyers’ pressure and the candlestick closes at the lower area of the inverted hammer. The small body and the absence of a lower shadow reveals the weakness of the bears who are unable to maintain the downward move. The body of the Inverted Hammer is 2-3 times shorter than the upper shadow.
