amibroker, exploration, pattern

This is an Amibroker exploration formula for finding various candlestick patterns. Here is a list of some of the different patterns it is able to find:

  • Doji – Formed when opening and closing prices are virtually the same. The lengths of shadows can vary.
  • Long-Legged Doji – Consists of a Doji with very long upper and lower shadows. Indicates strong forces balanced in opposition.
  • Dragonfly Doji – Formed when the opening and the closing prices are at the highest of the day. If it has a longer lower shadow it signals a more bullish trend. When appearing at market bottoms it is considered to be a reversal signal.
  • Gravestone Doji – Formed when the opening and closing prices are at the lowest of the day. If it has a longer upper shadow it signals a bearish trend. When it appears at market top it is considered a reversal signal.
  • Hanging Man – A black or a white candlestick that consists of a small body near the high with a little or no upper shadow and a long lower tail. The lower tail should be two or three times the height of the body. Considered a bearish pattern during an uptrend.
  • Inverted Black Hammer – A black body in an upside-down hammer position. Usually considered a bottom reversal signal.
  • Hammer – A black or a white candlestick that consists of a small body near the high with a little or no upper shadow and a long lower tail. Considered a bullish pattern during a downtrend.
  • Inverted Hammer – A black or a white candlestick in an upside-down hammer position.
  • Long Lower Shadow – A black or a white candlestick is formed with a lower tail that has a length of 2/3 or more of the total range of the candlestick. Normally considered a bullish signal when it appears around price support levels.
  • Long Upper Shadow – A black or a white candlestick with an upper shadow that has a length of 2/3 or more of the total range of the candlestick. Normally considered a bearish signal when it appears around price resistance levels.
  • Marubozu – A long or a normal candlestick (black or white) with no shadow or tail. The high and the lows represent the opening and the closing prices. Considered a continuation pattern.
  • Shooting Star – A black or a white candlestick that has a small body, a long upper shadow and a little or no lower tail. Considered a bearish
  • Spinning Top – A black or a white candlestick with a small body. The size of shadows can vary. Interpreted as a neutral pattern but gains importance when it is part of other formations.
  • Big Black Candle – Has an unusually long black body with a wide range between high and low. Prices open near the high and close near the low. Considered a bearish pattern.
  • Big White Candle – Has an unusually long white body with a wide range between high and low of the day. Prices open near the low and close near the high. Considered a bullish pattern.
  • Black Body – Formed when the opening price is higher than the closing price. Considered to be a bearish signal.
  • White Body – Formed when the closing price is higher than the opening price and considered a bullish signal.
  • Shaven Bottom – A black or a white candlestick with no lower tail.
  • Shaven Head – A black or a white candlestick with no upper shadow.

This is a nice piece of code. Could you possibly give a little instruction on how to best use it? Does is look for patterns in the last 3 bars.

Thanks,
Larry

Thnx a lot.

Nice Afl

6. Boknoy9999

I like this afl very useful.

This is a wonderful piece of code, I have made money using it. If you don’t understand Japanese Candles get a book and use this code as a study tool with the book. I added a filter for exploration and pick off only stocks that have a candlesticks with a high reliability.

The syntax error is simply changing a \N to \n.

Japanese candlesticks are not 100% correct, nothing is, but they are the best I have found for making profitable moves. Study them and try them, they work!

Thanks for the AFL. I just started on Candle stick and this AFL give me a excellent base to start.

Hi

Very good work. Thanks.

But many patterns are either missed out or showing wrong results or the definition is plain wrong. I find hundreds of such errors, this make this good work is of absolutely no useful.

Can we discuss?
