Price to Sales Ratio (PSR)


Hammer is an important bullish signal.
It looks the same as the hanging man (bearish signal) but it's position at
the bottom of a downward trend suggests the price is going up.

The hammer has a small real body (white or black) with a small to
non-existant upper shadow and a long lower shadow.
A classic hammers' lower shadow is at least twice the length of the real body.
