Dragonfly Doji

Back to Glossary

In technical analysis, a Dragonfly Doji is one of a family of Doji candlestick shapes that all share several common traits. Like all Dojis, the Dragonfly Doji’s open and close prices are almost identical, meaning that it has no real candlestick body. However, the Dragonfly Doji differs from the standard Doji shape by having a long lower wick. This tells you that even though the open and close prices were the same, there were periods of heavy selling and dip-buying throughout the candle’s duration. Dragonfly Dojis are read as a potential signal of a reversal either to the upside or the downside. In a downward trending market, a Dragonfly Doji can be a potential signal that buyers are reentering the market. In an upward trending market it can be a sign that more sell volume is starting to show up.
