A candlestick that gaps away from the previous candlestick is said to be in star position . The first candlestick usually has a large real body, but not always, and the second candlestick in star position has a small real body. Depending on the previous candlestick, the star position candlestick gaps up or down and appears isolated from previous price action. The two candlesticks can be any combination of white and black. Doji , hammers , shooting stars and spinning tops have small real bodies, and can form in the star position. Later we will examine 2- and 3-candlestick patterns that utilize the star position.
One of the key policies of Wikipedia is that all article content has to be verifiable . This means that a reliable source must be able to support the material. All quotations, any material whose verifiability has been challenged or is likely to be challenged and contentious material, whether negative, positive, or neutral, about living persons , must include an inline citation to a source that directly supports the material. This also means that Wikipedia is not the place for original work , archival findings that have not been published, or evidence from any source that has not been published.
