What is it?
The ‘long shadow refers to the length of the line from the closing price on a candle to the high or low price of that particular candle.
The ‘shadow’ should be at least twice the length of the real body of the candle.
These shadows tend to occur at turning points.
And they tend to lead to large price moves!
How do I trade it?
As with the rest of the candle stick patterns, we wait for the long shadow candle to close and we place our trade at the open of the next candle.
Your stop should again be placed at the extreme high or low of the shadow candle and trailed to follow the trend.
