Hanging Man Signals Bearish Reversal Strategy

  • A hanging man pattern forms when there is a large bearish movement, but the price ends up closing near the opening price, leaving a long shadow that is usually twice the size of the body of the Candle. Hanging man looks a bullish pin bar but usually forms at the top of an uptrend, often with a gap. But it is fine if there is no gap.
  • Keep in mind that Hanging Man patterns should be always considered as a bearish signal and you should not place a bullish order if the price breaks on the upside. Nonetheless, there is a similar-looking pattern that forms at the bottom of downtrend, which is called a Hammer and that signals bullishness in the market.
  • In figure, we can see a hanging man candlestick pattern forming and as soon as the low of the bar is broken, it triggers a bearish trend that lasted for several bars. Here, you should set a stop loss just above the high of the Hanging Man pattern.
