A Doji is a candlestick trading pattern that is commonly referred to in technical analysis circles. A Doji is formed when a very tight trading range occurs for a particular time period. For example, if you are analysing daily charts and the trading range for a particular day was small relative to average this would constitute a Doji being formed. The open price will be close to identical to the closing price with the daily fluctuations being minimal.

A Doji means that neither buyers nor sellers won the day and often occurs when there is indecision in the market place.
