STI formed a candlestick pattern called “Hammer” A hammer is a type of bullish reversal candlestick pattern, made up of just one candle, The candle looks like a hammer, as it has a long lower wick and a short body at the top of the candlestick with little or no upper wick. here the hammer form in a downtrend this is a sign of a potential reversal in the market as the long lower wick represents a period of trading where the sellers were initially in control but the buyers were able to reverse that control and drive prices back up to close near the high for the day, thus the short body at the top of the candle.
After seeing this chart pattern form in the market most traders will wait for the next period to open higher than the close of the previous period to confirm that the buyers are actually in control.
Two additional things that traders will look for to place more significance on the pattern are a long lower wick and an increase in volume for the time period that formed the hammer.
