I was going to give this a shot but the more I read it the more complicated it gets. Like how does one candle take out yesterdays low and the next candle takes out and closes above yesterdays high? Are each of these 8 hour candles representing one trading day? This image is 3 days?
anyways I wrote some code but didn't scan with it, as i don't do scans myself but this would give you a point to start I hope.

Code:
``````def IsUp = close > open;
def IsDown = close < open;
def IsDoji = IsDoji();
def avgRange = 0.05 * Average(high - low, 20);
plot PatternPlot =
IsUp[2] and # the green candle with no wicks is the 1st candle in the image
IsDown[1] and # the red candle is the 2rd candle in the image
IsUp[0] and # the current candle is the 3rd candle in the image
open[2] == low[2] and
close[2] == high[2] and #makes the green candle with no wicks
low[2] > low[1] and # 2nd candle low takes out (less than) the first candles low & open
low[2] > close[1]  and # 2nd candle close takes out the first candles low and open
high[1] < close[0] and # the 3rd candle takes out the first candles high? Alt interpretation ( high[2] < close[0] )
high[1] < high[0]; # Alt interpretation ( high[2] < high[0] )

#End Code``````
