A long wick means that the high/low range for the time period was large.

The middle one which is very long could have been caused by:

  • A fat fingered trade made at the low of the range

  • Normal trading throughout the range

  • Bad data from the provider

What actually occurred could be determined by looking at Time & Sales.

  • I added the volume stat to the original post. It says 139.16K. Feb 8, 2020 at 19:41
