Long-legged doji

Long-legged doji in technical analysis is a candlestick pattern in which opening and closing prices differ slightly (almost the same), but both shadows are long. Long-legged doji indicates indecision about the future direction of the security.

Long-legged doji is important during substantial uptrends or downtrends. Such a pattern informs about equilibrium between supply and demand, which can end with change of trend. The long-legged doji is also associated with change of sentiment of investors. The pattern can be used to set stop-loss or to signal support level.

It is important to analyze not only long-legged doji, but also find other patterns of technical analysis. Making decisions based on only one pattern is very risky and often can end with loses.
