Sushi Roll pattern on Olymp TradeTraders’ objective is to enter transactions at the best moment. This moment is not always so easy to identify and that is why various tools exist. Chart and candlestick patterns can help you in the decision-making process. We want to present them to you so you can utilise them in your trading. Today, we are going to describe the Sushi Roll pattern.

Sushi in trading

The Sushi Roll belongs to reversal patterns. This means that once you notice it on the chart, you can expect the price will change its direction. It reveals the general market sentiment. The method was developed by Mark Fisher and it gives you a warning about a possible reversal pretty soon.

How does the Sushi Roll look like?

In order to identify the pattern we describe today, you need to take 10 candles under observation. The first five should not show any large fluctuations. And the next five candles should engulf the first five.

The Sushi Roll can be bullish or bearish. Let’s see it on the exemplary chart.

Above you see a bullish Sushi Roll pattern. It can be identified during the downtrend. First five candles in the pattern show rather a sideways movement. The next five candles completely engulf the previous five. Not all candles in the second half of the pattern have to be green.

The following chart shows a bearish Sushi Roll that should be searched for in the uptrend. Here the last five candles of the pattern include in their range all the lows and highs from the previous five candles.
