Could one of you smart people tell me how to screen for any kind of candlestick
with a long shadow?

What is LONG?

Larger than the body?

 alanfoy10 postsmsg #61783- Ignore alanfoy 4/24/2008 1:37:22 PMYes, any where from nearly as long --- to longer than the body. I feel like if you get me pointed in the right direction, I'll be able to modify to find what I want. Thanks

This will give you a daily range (high - low) that is at least 3 times the length of the candle body, which would mean that even if you slice the range into 3 equal parts you would still have upper and lower tails that are no smaller than the candle body.

Feel free to add ure own price/volume as well as other criteria.

That's a start, but I would like to see upper & lower shadows separately.

Note the two columns labeled "Upper (%)" and "Lower (%)", respectively, which will tell you by how large each tail is in relation to the body.

Fetcher[
set{Shadow, day point range / opcl}

set{Hi, high - max(open, close)}
set{Lo, min(open, close) - low}
set{Hiratio, Hi / opcl}
set{Loratio, Lo / opcl}
set{Upper, mod(Hiratio,100) * 100}
set{Lower, mod(Loratio,100) * 100}

add column Upper{Upper (%)}
add column Lower{Lower (%)}
]
