Bearish harami

Posted in Bearish reversals

Bearish harami is a two-line pattern. It consists of a white body and a small black body that is completely engulfed by the body of the first day.

The pattern appears in an uptrend and forecasts its reversal. The first line can be any basic candle with a white body. The second element can be any black basic candle, appearing both as a long or a short line. The smaller the second candlestick, the more likely the reversal. If the small candlestick is a doji, the chances of a reversal increase more.
