candle: If a candle's high is higher than the previous candle's high and low is lower than previous candle's low, it is called Candle. If the candle's color is red, it is , if green it is .
Strategy: There are many strategies out there. The most known is creating pending orders after a few pips away from the direction of the candle. Assuming we have a candle. At the beginning of the next candle, we simply create a buy-stop order (pending order) over 5 pips of the previous candle's ( candle) high. Let's say candle's high was 1.16051. In this case, we create a buy-stop at 1.16101. Also please take spread into account! If our order is not filled in the same candle, simply cancel the pending order.
This indicator does not repaint. Once signal occurs, it will not be removed. However, candle's type ( or ) can only be confirmed by the end of the bar!
I actually don't use candle's in my trading. I am sharing this indicator in case you may need it.
