Topic: Engulfer/Candle body Size indication

Hi there,

I would like to program a simple engulfing EA. But: how can I compare the length of a previous candle body (eg bearish) to the lentgh of the follwing candle body (eg bullish)? I thought I could use "Bar Range" but this uses always the candle-length inclusive the wicks. The same with ATR. With "Percent Change" I can only compare the bodylength of 2 bullish or 2 bearish Candlebodies but not a bearish with a bullish.

Best regards

Christine

You can utilize the full programming capabilities of the MQL language in the MetaTrader Editor. MQL is a Turing complete language and you can do virtually anything with it.

On the other hand, FSB Pro and EA Studio use pre-programmed indicators and logical rules, which provide reliable backtesting and a capability to generate strategies.  You may search for a suitable custom indicator or to create one for your purpose.

You may also try the Candle Color indicator. If you want to make a combination of candles with different properties, you set several Candle Color indicators with a proper "signal shift".
