I look for these indecision candles on a daily basis (after market close). All of them have been shared on here before but separately. I thought it would be useful just to combine them into one single indicator. Easier to scan for new pattern.
Warning: The arrows and signals in this indicator does not suggest the direction of the stock's movement. They're there solely to point out the patterns.

A quick note about the Blast Off pattern: I added a plot for the blast off candlestick pattern in the code. However, the arrow is turned off by default since the candle is already being highlighted in pink. That being said, when you scan for this pattern, be sure to change the setting from No to Yes otherwise, it will return no result.

I'm not able to get this code to work. There are a couple of areas at the top that are shaded in red. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone help?

The following should work better now - there were a couple of lines which ought to have been commented out that were not. Most probably an oversight

Is there anyway I can find stocks that its previous candle bar Range (high-low) is less than .70 cents? I been trying to figure it out but unable to.

Thanks
