    What is the definition of a Big White candlestick?

    On the SHORT side. Using Harami as the definition of an inside day, since it’s already programmed into BC. Using the XJO over approx last 3 years, 205 instances ...traded as is, it may be a losing system unless you trade it very short term entering at a reasonable price (intraday...

    What is the definition of a Big White candlestick?

    Thanks for your help, GB and Tech/A. Tried to PM thanks for info to you GB, but bounced back...your PM box full. Besides the setup candlesticks mentioned above, I also improved results with gaps, especially... in shorting, where today opened <open and <close of the previous day (body gap)...

    What is the definition of a Big White candlestick?

    Thank you Tech/a. I have seen the Equivolume feature on BC, but never got around to using it..just got too used to regular candlestick patterns. But I’ll give them a go. I will add volume to the picture too. BTW, if the candlestick prior to the BigWhite is a doji, harami, morning star it...

    What is the definition of a Big White candlestick?

    My conclusions were...the blinking obvious really! The rarer/more exceptional you make the Big White by increasing the number of days you are averaging back the real body, and, more importantly, increasing the size of the Big White..from 1.2 to 3 times the average real body over 100 to 300...

    What is the definition of a Big White candlestick?

    Thank you Gringotts and Canoz. I take your point: vary my parameter inputs and maybe come up with something even better than the software proprietary definition, which in itself is only arbitrary anyway. A job for the weekend. Will report back.

    What is the definition of a Big White candlestick?

    I had some very good results backtesting in Bullcharts and Tradesim a system using Big White candlesticks. I’d like to duplicate it in Excel. Bullcharts formula must be proprietary, because I couldn’t get into the guts of it. I couldn’t find a formula or definition of a Big White [Tower/Real...

    Which daily EMA is closest to the 5 week EMA?

    I like to use the 5 EMA of the WEEKLY closing data as part of my filtering system ...to see if it is moving up or down? I can calculate this in Excel.. but it’s just a bit fiddly to incorporate with daily data. I’d like to keep my spreadsheet simpler. Would anyone know which daily EMA is...

    Unholy Grails - Amibroker

    No I don’t work for Bullcharts...very happy with it though. The Bollinger System above looks simpler to code in BC. >> Bullcharts can’t be used with the systems in the Book. ... of course it can. I was replying to Kylie9090 .... “I can't seem to find an answer to this question: How do...

    Unholy Grails - Amibroker

    I can thoroughly recommend Bullcharts and their Weblink data service (EOD approx $350 pa). It's a home grown Aussie product, been around for about 10 years. Customer service excellent. I much prefer it to Metatstock. 100's of inbuilt indicators and scans, and of course you can create your...

    What time of the day should you have a contingent order exercised?

    I know a stock can rise or fall dramatically at any time during the day. But has anyone studied the rhythm of a morning opening and afternoon close and established an ideal time to have a contingent order exercised..eg ...the default Stop Loss....Sell XYZ at 98 cents if the price is equal to or...
