Does any one know where the term harami candle used by investors to forecast market trends come from ? The term cannot be found in any english dictionaries (that I know of). I checked some site, there is a possibility that it should come from 孕み (pregnancy, from 孕む), but then why and how , especially given the expression "harami candle".
Some lights appreciated.
