Nikkei 225 Candlestick Patterns

Recognized Bullish Chart Patterns
Bullish doji Star Timeframe: Weekly
Reliability: Moderate
A reversal pattern.
During a downtrend, the market strengthens the bears with a long black candlestick and gaps open on the second one. However, the second candlestick trades within a small range and closes at or near its open. This scenario generally shows the potential for a rally, as many positions have been changed. Confirmation of the trend reversal would be a higher open on the next candlestick.
Dragonfly Doji Timeframe: Weekly
Reliability: Moderate
A reversal pattern.
During a downtrend, there is a massive sell off after the candle starts. However, the candle closes at or near its high and at the same level as the open. This signifies a weakening of the previous bearish sentiment. The longer the lower shadow, the smaller the upper shadow, and the smaller the real body, the more significant the pattern is. White real body is more bullish than black body.
Recognized Bearish Chart Patterns
Three Inside Down Timeframe: Hourly
Reliability: High
A reversal pattern.
This pattern is a more reliable addition to the standard Harami pattern. A bearish Harami pattern occurs in the first two candles. The third candle is a black one with a lower close than the second. The third candlestick is confirmation of the bearish trend reversal.
Harami Bearish Timeframe: 5 Hours
Reliability: Low
A reversal pattern.
The Harami Bearish Pattern is a two-candlestick pattern composed of a relatively small black real body contained within a prior relatively long white real body.
'Harami' is old Japanese word for pregnant. The long white candlestick is ‘the mother’ and the small candlestick is ‘the baby’. It signals that the current uptrend is losing strength.
The shadows of the second candlestick do not have to be contained within the first candle’s body, though it's preferable if they are. The Harami indicator should be confirmed with the next candlestick.
The Harami pattern is also the first two candlesticks of the Three Inside patterns. It is not as significant reversal pattern as the Hanging Man or Engulfing.

Don't think up is in the cards. Look at the exchange rate - should drop some more. Futures says 8 %, but I think another 4 % drop is likely over night. Missed buying the short.

Stock Rout Was Inevitable And Will Worsen Says Leuthold’s Ramsey. . Doug Ramsey, whose quantitative research into market breadth, valuation and investor sentiment foreshadowed the drubbing in American stocks last week, says the selling will get worse.. The chief investment officer of Leuthold Weeden Capital Management LLC predicted Sunday that losses in the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index could reach 20 percent. Last week’s decline left the benchmark index down 7.5 percent from its May record.. “It’s going to be pretty deep,” Ramsey said in a telephone interview. “We’re in the camp that this is not yet a big move. It’s scary, and those last two day trends look ugly.. . http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-08-23/stock-rout-was-inevitable-to-leuthold-s-ramsey-and-will-worsen.
