In the study of the candlestick trading strategy, an inverted hammer is a bullish reversal pattern that’s formed after a bearish trend in the market. It’s exactly opposite to “Hammer” as it has a long upper shadow (wick), small lower body and little or no lower shadow (wick), so it resembles an “Inverted Hammer”. Besides that, it exhibits the weakness in a selling trend and signifies a potential buying trend in the market.
