Breakout for PetroBakken Energy on the daily chart
PetroBakken Energy (PBN:TSX) candlestick chart analysis showing the morning doji star candlestick pattern. And a bullish white candlesticks gaps away from the previous white candlestick with a confirmed breakout at $17.00. Volume, On Balance Volume (OBV) and the Relative Strength Indicator (RSI) are confirming the uptrend.
The morning doji star is a major reversal pattern which called an end to the near-term downtrend that started on February 23. It is comprised of three candlesticks. The first candlestick is the dark tall bearish candlestick that appeared on March 5. The bears were in control at this stage but the volume was relatively light. Then on March 6, a gap appears with a doji (narrow or the same opening and closing) which is the second part of the pattern. Then on March 7, there is another gap and a tall white candlestick associated with above average volume. The reversal pattern is now completed. This particular morning star formation is rare and would be properly called an abandoned baby. It has two gaps where there is no overlap of the shadows.
