What Is A Bear Trap Candlestick?

In this post, I will make a lot of mention about the bear trap candlestick. This is the definition of the bear trap candlestick.

A bear trap candlestick is the candlestick that either:

  1. breaks the support level and closes below it
  2. or break the support level but that closes above it.

Right after the bear trap candlestick forms, price tends to move up.

Now, lets get started.

Is A Bear Trap Chart Pattern Bullish Or Bearish?

A bear trap chart pattern is a bullish signal.

This signal forms when price hits a support level and pretends to break it only to reverse and head up.

So you should be looking for a bear trap chart pattern when you spot major support levels.
