About HotCandlestick.com

HotCandlestick.com was founded by a private investor in 2001 to identify candlestick chart patterns on a variety of time frames. Charting time frames include daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly.

Candlesticks can offer a glimmer into the psychology of short-term trading activity by showing whether the buyer or seller has control of the market. HotCandlestick.com is a candlestick pattern identification data service, not an investment advisory service.

Charts highlighting recent candlestick patterns are featured on the homepage. Click or tap here to search for stocks or currencies covered by HotCandlestick.com.

High and low prices are described as shadows and plotted as single lines.


The price range between the open and close is plotted as a rectangle on the single line. If the close is above the open, the body of the rectangle is white. If the close of the day is below the open, the body of the rectangle is red.

Candlestick pattern identifying factors include recent trend of the stock price, number of candlesticks in the pattern and daily volume. HotCandlestick.com maintains a continually updating database of patterns and their success rates over defined time intervals. Expect success rates to change over time based on different market cycles, major world events, etc.

Valid patterns are identified based on criteria such as daily volume and definitions of short and long individual candlesticks. Long and short candle body sizes are determined using a relative comparison of the previous 25 daily candle bodies on a stock by stock basis. This method of determining candle body size means that a non-volatile stock such as an ETF based on an index may have a long candle definition of 1.4% where a volatile stock may have a long candle definition of 8.7%.

HotCandlestick.com, LLC is not an investment advisory service and does not recommend the purchase or sale of stocks. There are no licensed financial advisors working at HotCandlestick.com, LLC. HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING SYSTEM. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THE RISK OF LOSS IN TRADING STOCKS CAN BE SUBSTANTIAL. Stock trading is speculative and a substantial risk of loss exists. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
