In a Hanging Man pattern, market witnesses a significant selloff in the beginning of the trade so the opening level becomes the highest point of the trade and then the index trades lower.
The Nifty pared gains after hitting fresh record high of 9913.30 and closed marginally lower on Friday making a ‘Hanging Man’ kind of formation on the daily candlestick charts.
A Hanging Man is a bearish reversal candlestick pattern that is formed at the end of an uptrend (400-point rally from its recent low of 9,450).
In a perfect 'Hanging Man' pattern, there is no upper shadow, a small body, and long lower shadow. The selloff is usually seen as an early indication of a short-term top being formed.
In this pattern, market witnesses a significant selloff in the beginning of the trade so the opening level becomes the highest point of the trade and then the index trades lower.
However, the pattern still needs confirmation and investors should wait for Monday’s price action before taking a call. Investors will be better off booking some profits now and avoid initiating fresh positions until new signs are available.
In Friday's price action, Nifty slipped from 9913.30 levels to 9845.45 which made a long lower shadow on the candlestick charts. The index finally closed 5.3 points lower at 9,886.35.
