What does the rising window pattern tell traders?

Before trading the rising window pattern, you should obviously learn the reason for the formation of this candlestick pattern.

The body of bullish candlestick indicates the momentum and power of buyers in the market. 

A large bullish body means more buyers are buying a specific asset. A small bullish body means few buyers are buying a specific asset. The market works like a tug of war. 

When a candlestick closes then a new candlestick will open usually at the same level. 

But sometimes when a large number of orders get filled then a sudden change in price happens. This sudden change causes a gap in the price chart.

What are the features of the rising window? 

The gap in the rising window pattern also acts as a strong support level.  Sometimes, the price will give a small pullback towards the gap to fill it, and then it will continue its bullish trend. 

For example, you are looking for a buying opportunity after the formation of a rising window pattern but the bullish candlestick has a wide range resulting in a bigger stop loss level and a small risk-reward ratio. Then you can wait for the price to give a minor pullback to fill the gap and open a buy order after a bullish candlestick confirmation at the gap zone.
