The Japanese candlestick charts are one of the most popular candlestick charts. With this chart, traders use it to make trading decisions that are based on regular occurring patterns that help forecast the very short-term direction of the price. Thus, the candlestick charts are used by traders to determine the possible price movements that are based on past patterns.

Trading as we know is often directed by emotion. This can be read in the candlestick charts. The candlestick chart is very useful in trading since they show four price points. These are: open, close, low, and high. They tend to show throughout the period of time the trader sets or specifies.

A Japanese man by the name of Homma discovered this in the 1700s. This was a Japanese rice trader who had very good knowledge of demand and supply theories. He wanted to understand the price fluctuations and the particular market behaviors for the respective fluctuations. This is because tho there was a link between the price and the supply and demand of rice, their markets were really influenced by the emotions of the traders.

The candlesticks as we know show these emotions by representing or showing the size of price moves with different colors. In the candlestick charts, time frames can be changed so that it will create a good platform for predictions in future asset prices. The structure of the candlesticks as mentioned above consists of open price, highest price, lowest price, and the final price.

These candlesticks can be seen in exchanges like Binance, web-based charts like trading view.com and Poloniex.
