A bearish harami occurred (where the current small black body is contained within an unusually large white body). During an uptrend (which appears to be the case with BHP BLT FPO) this pattern implies an end to the rally as the bulls appear to have exhausted themselves.
During a downtrend the bearish harami pattern is bullish as the bulls appear to be gaining strength as the bears weaken.
