They have to be at the top of up rends. They are easy to spot due to their extremely
long wicks at the top. These are eye catchy. A trader might sell short the following
candle with stops above the top of the wick. Or if long, a person could simply take
profits on the next candle. Remember, a candle isn’t anything until it’s fully formed
(closed). Before it closes out it could become anything no matter what it looks
like presently. See an example of a shooting star below. It has a very small candle
body at the bottom with extremely long wicks above it (at least 2-3 times the size
of the body).
See the Shooting Star pattern also on the chart of Ford below.
