Did your shop tell you that ? I wouldn't believe anything they say.

Maybe you need to talk to barjon. I heard he has some experience with big candles and knows how they work.

Each price action bar tells a story. Our job as trader is to interpret price action and understand what is going on with demand and supply. We know that the second bar gapped down after many days of corrective down days. There are usually two ways to interpret a WRB following a series of down days. It is either a continuation bar or an exhaustion bar. The fact that it initially gapped down suggest that there were willing sellers eager to get out. The fact that there was little follow through following the initial gap would suggest that aside from the initial sellers there were no other willing sellers who shared the same view. As such there was exhaustion of sellers. In trading stocks, the universal view is that when a stock stops going down is because it has run out of willing sellers. When you have a major gap down with no follow through, professional players see it as a buy opportunity. Since the initial sellers were gone from the initial gap down volume, it doesn't require a lot of volume to get the stock back up.

You sound like you're surprised, like you were certain it would go down a bit?

Brumby is correct, though the action has nothing to do with candles per se since candles are nothing more than a means of illustration. If you don't understand what he's saying, look at much smaller candles to see what's going on "inside" your long candles.

Actually the second is just as much a sign of "real demand" as the first. "Real demand" is reflected in the fact that price rises. The volume illustrates the lack of selling pressure in the second instance, which is why buyers are able to move price with so little resistance, i.e., so little volume.

If you're interested in price and volume and relationship between each, see this post and as many following as interest you.

However on the second green candle the volume is too less. I expected there were only a few buyers and the prices would correct themselves if not fall. Suppose one shorted the stock but the prices went from 435 to 495. Going just by price and volume why
did this happen?

I still haven't figured how to use those VOL BARS at bottom of the chart. Those are useless for me, don't see ANY correlation at all
