Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Hi NT,

The attached indicator has taken it a step forward and can display all patterns. I am looking for some help with some missing patterns and the way they get displayed.

Thanks I figured that, I tried everything

Can be easily modified, post your request here:

And someone will likely help you.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Lots of missing patterns

NinjaTrader View Post
You have to click on the parameter where you see "MorningStar" to open the list of available patterns.

Would be appreciated if you can make sure that the list of candle patterns is complete. There are many important ones missing. I am sure some of the experts on the forum could give the best references for the definitive list.

Japanese Candlestick Charting Explained
is one I have seen - not sure if this is the best list - IIRC there is a definitive book on JCS which covers everyting - maybe someone else can remind us
