The one day Bullish Reversal pattern Dragonfly Doji is a rare candlestick pattern that occurs at the bottom of a downtrend. It is very similar to the Bullish Hammer Pattern, except on a Dragonfly Doji the opening and closing prices are nearly identical with no body.

The word marubozu means “bald head” in Japanese, and this is reflected in the candlestick’s lack of wicks. When the open price of a stock = day low, and close price = day high, we have the bullish or White Marubozu. A White Marubozu is a one day bullish indicator that moves upward and is considered very bullish. If a White Marubozu occurs at the end of an uptrend, a continuation is likely. If a White Marubozu occurs at the end of a downtrend, a reversal is likely.
(A small amount of flexibility is allowed in the definition of the white marubozu, when the open is almost equal to the low, and close is almost equal to the high)
The Bullish Engulfing pattern is a two day bullish pattern that forms when a small black candlestick is followed by a large white candlestick that completely eclipses or "engulfs" the previous day's candlestick. This trend suggests the bulls have taken control of a security's price movement from the bears.
The Bearish brother of this pattern is the Bearish Engulfing pattern.
A Bullish Kicking/Kicker pattern is a two day bullish reversal pattern consisting of a black Marubozu followed by a white Marubozu.

The word marubozu means “bald head” in Japanese, and this is reflected in the candlestick’s lack of wicks. The Black Marubozu is a one day bearish pattern. Here the open is equal to the day high and the close is equal to the day low.
It is a long black (down, or red on the charts) candle, with little to zero upper or lower shadows. The pattern shows that sellers controlled the trading day from open to close.
A Bearish Engulfing pattern is a two day bearish reversal pattern that consists of a small white candlestick with short shadows or tails followed by a large black candlestick that eclipses or "engulfs" the small white one. A bearish engulfing pattern is usually seen at the end of an upward trend. The bullish brother of this is the Bullish Engulfing.
The Inverted Hammer is a one day bullish reversal pattern. During a downtrend, the open is lower, then it trades higher, but closes near its open, therefore looking like an inverted lollipop. The bearish brother of this candlestick is the Shooting Star.
