In this blog, I will coverup one of the most used pattern for buying entry that is the bullish engulfing pattern. In bullish engulfing, First candles price open and seller came into control and push price all way down lower and closed near the low. After that second candle opens near the low or below the previous low and buyers becomes active and push all the price at higher and closing the near highs which are above the previous high. So basically, the Second candle covers up an entire previous candle as shown in the above image. This indicating bullish sign were buyers in control. The larger bullish engulfing candle is more significant to trade. This is the basics of the bullish engulfing pattern now let’s look how to trade in the bullish engulfing pattern step by step.
Firstly, Draw the support and resistance levels on the chart. Below is the example of HDFC Bank support and resistance level based on 14th January Closing.
