The Hammer Blast pattern
occurs at the end of a down-trend. It often reflects a
change in the sentiment of the market. The pattern works
well for market indices (DAX, DOW…) and individual stocks.
|Components||: Hammer candlestick pattern

As soon as the Hammer pattern is confirmed by the termination of the fourth candle a long position is bought at the market price. The Hammer pattern does not provide short sell signals.
This example shows a Hammer pattern on the S&P 500 chart in a 60-minute time frame.
