What is Hanging Man: Bearish Reversal Pattern?

Hanging Man is a bearish reversal pattern, which occurs at the top of a trend. This pattern appears after or during an uptrend. It is a single candlestick pattern. It resembles with Bearish Dragonfly Doji. The only difference is doji has same opening and closing while Hanging Man has a small real body at the upper end. Colour of Hanging Man is not important. However, it is considered as more potent, if its colour is black. Lower shadow of Hanging man should be twice as long as real body. There should be very little or no upper shadow.

Strategy: Hanging Man indicates end of an uptrend, hence, short positions can be initiated post confirmation by way of gap down opening or a lower close or a black candle the next day of Hanging Man day.
