Rising Window Candlestick Pattern: In the world of the stock market, every movement in price is due to a reason and every movement gives an indication. There are few candlestick patterns which when formed give a certain indication of future movement. These candlestick patterns are important tools for technical analysts to predict the future movement of prices.

This article will explore the Rising Window Pattern, a two-candlestick pattern, covering its features, details, and trading strategies associated with it.

Rising Window Candlestick Pattern – Definition

The Rising Window Candlestick pattern is a two-candlestick pattern that strongly indicates the bullish movement of the price. A two-candlestick pattern is only called a rising window pattern if both the candlesticks are bullish candles and there is a gap between the two candlesticks. Meaning, that the second candle’s low should be higher than the high of the first candle. 

The rising window candlestick pattern is generally used for bullish continuation indication. If it appears in an uptrend it generally indicates the continuation of a bullish momentum. So its appearance gives traders an indication to buy the security and hold onto it if they have already bought it.

Rising Window Candlestick Pattern – Formation

Two conditions need to be filled for a two-candlestick pattern to be formed as a rising window pattern:

Condition 1- Both candles need to be bullish (green) candles.

Condition 2- There should be a gap between the two candles. That is, the low of the second candle should be higher than the high of the first candle.

A rising window pattern is formed quite often in the market in an uptrend but this pattern can also appear during a downtrend. However, it is generally used to get a bullish continuation indication in the security.

Rising Window Candlestick Pattern – Psychology

In an uptrend, the first candle formed is a green candle due to buyers being in control of the market. The second candle opens with a gap up because of the high buying pressure where buyers are willing to buy the security at higher prices. 

In this candle formation, the buying pressure is so high that the second candle’s low price doesn’t even come near the high price of the first candle. Due to the formation of the rising window, it forms a positive outlook and more buyers might see this as a potential buying zone. This is why the price generally moves higher after the formation of a rising window pattern. 

Key Characteristics of Rising Window Candlestick Pattern 

  1. The two candles formed are bullish candles (green candles) with a gap between the high price of the first candle and the low price of the second candle.
  2. The gap between the two candles acts as a support zone.
  3. This pattern indicates a bullish continuation when it appears during an uptrend
