Harami Cross

The Psychology
In an uptrend or within a bounce of a downtrend a long white day occurs. The next day's gap down comes as a surprise to bulls who thought they were sitting on a great position the previous day. Reliability of the bearish Harami Cross is better than that of the bearish Harami, but it is still on the low side. A weak following day is needed for confirmation.

A long white day is followed by a Doji that gaps down and is completely engulfed by the real body of the first day.

Pattern: reversal
Reliability: moderate
