More than 40 Candlesticks patterns are available in this drop-down menu. Please refer to Candlestick patterns for more details.

Middle-right drop-down menu: Current or Completed candlestick pattern

You can either decide to detect:

  • current patterns including the latest candlestick and that should be confirmed when such latest candlestick ends. Note that a current pattern may disappear from your list at anytime, since the latest candlestick can change its shape with subsequent ticks.
  • completed patterns that don't include the latest candlestick but the previous one. Such patterns will not disappear from your list as they are composed exclusively of candlesticks whose creation have been definitively ended.
