Candle Crawler V1 [Moon]

MoonOverlord Updated   
Candle Crawler is designed to crawl back through candle and bar data to retrieve specific values of interest.

The first implementation shows

  • Total bars or candles on any specific time frame or asset to the beginning of the chart. This can be used for backtesting or looking for specific assets / time frames that have a lot of backtest data.
    - *usually* More backtest data = More accurate strategy implementation or live testing.

  • Crawls back and counts Red vs Green candles in a defined period (the max is 4999 total bars).

    Use this to identify bearish or bullish trends and assets.
    - *hint* if an asset through time is leaning heavily one way, a long-only or short-only strategy may be worth investigating.

  • Plots days of the week on each candle within it's specific day (turned off by default).

Default view of Total Candles + R/G (note if you want to turn off the labels go to the "Style" tab and just uncheck "Labels" at the bottom).

Works on any asset or timeframe including stocks and forex.

Easily filter days on or off to identify specific patterns or trends (check the "days of the week" box for ON|OFF) or head to the "style" tab to customize days or colors.

Most precise on the Daily (D) timeframe, but applicable on any.

If interested send me a DM.
Release Notes:
Added a small alert for the daily close / last candle of the day (UTC 00:00 Time)
Should match up with any timeframe and display a "DC" (daily close) alert.
Will help you keep an eye on the daily close even if you are scalping or on smaller TFs as trends seem to shift around then.

Release Notes:
- Bug Fix on Alert Condition
