A kind request.

I am doing a study on specific candle patterns and plan to include it in a strategy. I searched BM and Ninja forums and found the attached indicator. It's a very good start. It has quite a few patterns that I was looking for but missing just a few. The current display clutters the chart and makes it difficult for reading. I would like the patterns be displayed as options which can be activated or deactivated as necessary. Also instead of using the full name of the pattern, it could use a color marker (arrow, dots, star, etc.) taking less space on the chart. The missing patterns are as follows:

Doji (common, long legged, Dragon fly, Grave stone) Shooting Star, Tweetzer Top, Tweetzer Bottom, High Wave.

I am not a programmer and so I am hoping someone will have the time to code this for us.

Thank you in advance,

Sincerely,

I thought Ninja had a built-in indicator that did this called "CandleStickPattern" and it would let you turn them on/off based on your preferences.

Hi BM,

I don't see any. There is one for MorningStar only. Any help will be truly helpful.

Im using a black background and the charts dont show a regular doji because the cross is black itself. it only
shows up as a hi-lo bar is there a way to fix this where I dont have to use candle outline.
Thanks

Unfortunately not, candle outline color controls it as you have pointed out.

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.

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

I uploaded CandleStickDoctor, which should give you a leg up. There is an enum that has all the results for each bar. You should be able to use this in a strategy. PM me if you have difficulty and I can help out.
