Let us first talk the Engulfing Pattern.


The name sort of speaks for itself. A valid engulfing position is when the 2nd candle completely surrounds the body of the first candle. Bullish engulfing forms out of a bearish candle that is succeeded by a bigger bullish candle. Bearish engulfing forms out of a bullish candle succeeded by a bigger bearish candle. You can see a bullish pattern once there is a downward movement or a consolidation period. It shows that the bulls can be quite strong to begin controlling the market. This strength can be seen through a huge, engulfing candle. There are times when the 2nd candle engulfs one or more candles before it. When this happens, you have to pay attention because this is a stronger signal. You can also apply this principle to bearish engulfing patterns.

You will see inside bars in either a downtrend or up trend. There are no important requirements like Tweezers. Often times, one inside bar may follow the Mother bar.
