In the Candlestick Trading Strategy, a shooting star is a bearish reversal pattern that is formed after a bullish trend in the market. It’s identical to “Inverted Hammer” as it has a long upper shadow (wick), small lower body, and little or no lower shadow (wick). Besides this, it exhibits the weakness in a buying trend and signifies a potential selling trend in the market.
