Hi, brand new and am trying to learn Candlestick patterns. I've seen Red and Black and gray all on

the same chart, I've seen green, red, open and filled in black, etc. Where is the best source to learn what chart identifies the differences?
Thank you

    Chart school on SC has a very good introduction:

    For books, check out the bookstore on SC or Amazon. Probably the best known authors are Steve Nison, Greg Morris (SC contributor) and Martin Pring (also SC contributor).

    But, I wouldn't go crazy on memorizing the hundreds of patterns. Just concentrate on what represents strong or weak buying pressure and strong or weak selling pressure. And pay attention to the volume that accompanies each candle configuration.

    Also check out Candlevolume and/or Arms Candlevolume charts. Very helpful in spotting quickly where the action is/has been.
