A hanging man is a bearish reversal candlestick pattern that occurs after a price advance. The advance can be small or large, but should be composed of at least a few price bars moving higher overall. - The candle must have a small real body and a long lower shadow that is at least twice the size as the real body. There is little or no upper shadow. - Traders typically exit long trades or enter short trades during or after the confirmation candle, not before.
