What is a Bullish Harami Cross

The first bar in the Bullish Harami Cross is a large body down-close whereas the second is a doji, contained within the large candle body. The large and doji body requirements are determined by a minimum / maximum threshold. It is established by making a comparison to the average bar size found in the reference period. The minimum / maximum thresholds, and the reference period used to calculate the average are adjustable.

An internal Swing Trend indicator furthermore determines the current trend bias, user selectable as per deviation type and a multiplier setting. The bearish equivalent to this pattern is the Bearish Harami Cross.

One should combine these pattern with other technical tools to improve probability. For example, our Indicator Library has categories for advanced momentum oscillators, volume analysis and / or channel indicators that may be used to confirm price action setups.

An example on how to do that was discussed in this post.
