A little while ago I wrote a series of articles about mechanically testing candlestick patterns in the forex. Because spot forex lacks gaps, a lot of traders ignore candles even though they can still be used productively. In this first test I set up some simple parameters and looked at what kind of profitability you could expect from hammers in the forex. I thought the findings were really interesting. You can see that article here: http://www.pfxglobal.com/pfx-forex-blog/hammer-out-some-profits-with-candlestick-patterns.html Any candlestick analysts out there? What are your thoughts?
