Bearish Harami

Harami is a two-candle formation.

The body of the current bearish session is within the body of the previous bullish session. This formation is known as a Bearish Harami. It indicates that the bulls are exhausted.

The meaning of Harami is a pregnant lady in Japanese language. The first candle is like a mother and the second is baby. This pattern is same as western Inside bar pattern but in this case the body of the current session is within the body of the previous session, not the whole candle.

Bearish Harami is a trend reversal pattern that needs more confirmation. It is a warning sign.

Larger the body of the first candle – better it is. Smaller the body of the second candle – better it is. Therefore, ideal Bearish Harami pattern is a large bullish candle like a belthold line followed by a small bearish candle like a shooting star, hanging man, Doji etc.
