Full Definition of Long Day

Long Day is a candlestick with a long real body, relative to other candlesticks on a stock chart.

A Long Day candlestick represents a large price move from open to close, where the length of the candle body is long.

The Long Day candlestick can occur in a number of different contexts and by itself, it only indicates that the time frame was neither bullish or bearish and had a small range. Therefore, the Long Day is not generally used as a trade signal. The Long Day is often part of a larger candlestick pattern, in which case it has more relevance.
