Interpretation of Short Day

The Short Day candlestick can occur in a number of different contexts and by itself it only indicates that the time frame was neither bullish or bearish, and had a small range. Therefore, the Short Day is not generally used as a trading signal. The Short Day is often part of a larger candlestick pattern, in which case it has more relevance.
