There are two types of Closing Marubozu candlestick patterns: one is bearish and the other is bullish.

The bearish Closing Marubozu candlestick has a long red body with only an upper shadow. This candlestick pattern suggests that the Bears are stronger than the Bulls because the close price and the low price are at the same level. If this candlestick appears in a downtrend, it suggests a continuation of the downtrend. If it appears after an uptrend, it suggests a possible trend reversal to the downside.
