are 2 different colors; red being a downtrend candle, and green being an uptrend

candle. This particular pattern is formed after a clear downtrend in the market. This

candle ideally opens lower that the 1st day’s close, then ideally closes higher than

the 1st day’s open, which will show the green candle completely engulfing the
