Bull/Bear 180 Scan


New member
Hello. I'm hoping for a scan that will alert me when a Bull or Bear 180 occurs.

More specifically, an alert would occur when a Candle closes and is taller than or equal to [>/=] the length of the previous Candle of the opposite color - and an arrow would indicate the alert triggering Candle.

So if a Green Candle closes and then is followed by a Red Candle that is the same height as, or taller than the prior Green Candle [Bear 180] - an arrow will identify the Red Candle and an alert would be triggered. And vice versa if occurrence is a Bull 180 where a Red Candle is followed by a taller Green Candle.

Code should adjust to all Time Frames.

Many thanks in advance.

mod note:
FYI: Bull 180 is one of the 4 candle patterns of Oliver Velez

Velez's use of the 180 pivot is interesting, but totally not where I'm going with my request. Chasing stocks is definitely not my interest. Instead the scan I've requested will help me - with Gamma data, better time my sale of option positions.

Can you help with the Scan requested? It would be much appreciated. Thx
