Full Definition of Short Day

Short Day candlestick has a small candlestick body. In itself, a short day candlestick has no bullish or bearish significance.  The candlestick is generally only considered in relation to a larger candlestick formation.

A Short Day candlestick represents a small price move from open to close, where the length of the candle body is short.

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.
