Complete Cryptocurrency Trading Course

The spinning top is very similar to Doji.

Apart from a bigger body, everything else is quite the same. Its primary meaning is indecision.

As you can see, there are two types of spinning tops.

While, most of you will think that red one is bearish, while the green one is bullish, it is not quite like that.

Its meaning gets from the position it forms.

If it appears in an uptrend, because of indecision that it brings, we have a bearish sign.

On the other side, if it forms in a downtrend, it is a bullish sign.

The color of the spinning top is less important.

What is important is the shape it creates and also where it creates.

It is better to see green candlestick in a downtrend because it will be an even stronger bullish sign, but one more time, the shape and position where it creates is what plays main role, not the color.

If it forms in a sideways market, it is almost useless because by default sideways market is one big indecision period and one spinning top will make it indecisive even more.
