Sushi Roll

DEFINITION of 'Sushi Roll'

A candlestick pattern consisting of 10 bars where the first five (inside bars) are confined within a narrow range of highs and lows and the second five (outside bars) engulf the first with both a higher high and lower low. If a sushi roll appears in a prevailing trend, it is a sign that there may be an upcoming trend reversal.

Sushi roll analysis is used to try to predict market tops and bottoms.

BREAKING DOWN 'Sushi Roll'

The pattern is similar to a bearish or bullish engulfing pattern, except that it is composed of multiple bars instead of a pattern of two single bars. This pattern was named a sushi roll by Mark Fisher in his book, "The Logical Trader".
