What they don’t tell you is, this same pattern can show itself anywhere on a stock chart…not just at the bottom! Check it out for yourself! Find a candlestick chart of a stock that trends up and down and see for yourself. You’ll find the bullish engulfing pattern in the middle of up trends, tops of trends, down trends and bottom of trends and only one of those will get you into a profitable trade.
