Topic: Indicator for identifying black and white candles

Hi am trying to backtest with a simple strategy given below:

if two white  candles appear above moving average - enter on next bar
exit if two black candles appear
exit if price closes below moving average..

i tried using heiken ashi white and black but it does not seem work..as in position opens even when the condition is not fulfilled(probably because its heiken ashi). is there any indicator which can be used to identfy black and white..

Re: Indicator for identifying black and white candles

Hi,
Use Candle Color for deciding bullish or bearish candle with 2 consecutive candles. Use 2 moving averages, one with signal shift in advanced properties. And use two groups for different exit logic smile Hope it helps

Actually there is enough only one moving average with Signal shift 1 and Signal repeat 1 in advanced settings. It would be less complicated to optimize with lower number of variables.
