Category: Candlestick, Pattern

A pattern found in technical analysis of options trading. Tweezers patterns occur when two or more candlesticks touch the same bottom for a tweezers bottom pattern or top for a tweezers top pattern. This type of pattern can be made with candlestick charts of various types. Tweezers bottoms are considered to be short-term bullish reversal patterns. Tops are bearish, and either end means that buyers or sellers were not able to push the top or bottom any further. Both types of patterns require close observation and research in order to be interpreted and used correctly.
