A trader should wait for the signal confirming the pattern formation.
The Stick Sandwich candlestick pattern is a bullish reversal pattern which usually confirms a reversal of a trend.
The Kicking candlestick pattern can be either bullish or bearish and it is not necessary to be confirmed. This pattern looks similar to the separating candlestick pattern. However, the difference between these patterns is that the Kicking pattern shows a gap in the opening prices instead of their parity.
The Homing Pigeon candlestick reversal pattern is a bullish formation which looks like the Harami pattern. The difference is that the Pigeon has two candlesticks which are usually black.
