What is the Bullish Harami

The first bar in the Bullish Harami pattern is a large body down-close whereas the second is a small bar, contained within the range of the prior bars’s body. The large and small body size specifications are determined by a minimum / maximum threshold. This is found by making a comparison between the two last bars and the average bar size in the reference period.

The minimum / maximum thresholds, and the reference period used to establish the average are user selectable via the indicator dialogue box. An internal Swing Trend furthermore indicator determines the trend bias, adjustable as per deviation type and a multiplier setting. Finally, the bearish equivalent to this pattern is the Bearish Harami.

As with other reversal patterns, one should combine these patterns with other technical tools, such as advanced momentum oscillators, volume analysis and / or channel indicators. An example on how to confirm a candlestick price action setup was discussed in this post.
