What is Morning Star candlestick pattern?
Morning Star is a candlestick pattern announcing a sharp reversal in the downtrend. And it is the most sought after pattern by traders. Because prices continue to rise as it appears. The optimistic psychology of investors presents in quite a detail through the pattern.
Morning Star candlestick pattern consists of 3 candles:
– First candlestick: is a bearish candlestick with a long body.
– Second candlestick: is a small body or Doji candlestick (the color of the candle does not matter). It shows the market hesitation at that time.
– Third candlestick: is a bullish candlestick with a length of more than 50% of the first candle.
Meaning of the Morning Star candlestick pattern
The Morning Star candlestick pattern provides a reversal forecast with high accuracy. If prices are in a downtrend when the Morning Star pattern appears, traders should be cautious when opening DOWN orders. It indicates optimism about the future market.
When combining the candlesticks of the Morning Star pattern, we get a special candlestick called Bullish Pin Bar. With the direction of the price from decreasing => hesitation => increasing, it creates a positive feeling about the upcoming market.
Most effective capital management method with Morning Star candlestick pattern
I have observed the frequency of its appearance on the Japanese candlestick chart for 1 month. There is enough evidence to ensure that the Morning Star pattern appears 3-5 times on each currency pair. It carries a reversal prediction from decrease to increase with a win rate of 65% – 75%. Therefore, we should use the classic capital management method which is the most reasonable.
With such a management method, it is not difficult to make your balance increase day by day. This combination is definitely suitable for traders who always minimize risks but still want to gain profits.
Why do we have to study the candlestick pattern detailedly? Is that necessary?
Shovels are for digging. Knives are for chopping meat. They all aim to maximize their effectiveness. A candlestick pattern is used as a trading signal. However, you must understand the nature and choose the correct timing to promote its full strength.
So understanding the characteristics and meaning is what professional traders need to do to win in the market.
Pieces of knowledge of finance, in general, and of candlestick patterns in the Japanese candlestick chart, in particular, are endless. And acquiring knowledge is never redundant. Be an intelligent person who is always receptive. Don’t be a fool who pretends to be smart.

High-accuracy Morning Star candlestick patterns rarely appear. So I only opened a few orders a day at where I found the highest winning rate.
Reasons for opening the 1st order: The uptrend was stable, representing through consecutive bullish candles. The price suddenly dropped sharply. But when it hit the support zone, it indecisively created a Doji candlestick. After that, it formed a Morning Star candlestick pattern at the support zone in the uptrend.

No matter who you are, no matter how high your win rate is, if you choose the wrong timing, you will still lose.
