This script is a "fork" of Crinklebine's excellent "Candle Type" script for Rob Smith's ( aka RobInTheBlack) #thestrat methodology. 1 strategy that's becoming increasingly popular is looking for 3-1 (outside-inside) set-ups per #thestrat. The idea is that as the inside candle breaks, the target to take profits is given by the high/low of the previous outside...
Based on 'The Strat' methodology by Rob Smith.
This script will paint 1 & 3 bars per 'The Strat'.
N.B. Per 'The Strat' a bar is seen as a 1 (inside) when the bar's high or low is an equal tick to the previous bar.
Shows the historic bar type, whether it is up, down, up and inside, down and inside, up and outside, or down and outside. Will only display historic bar type based on the selected time timeframe. (Ex. if you are looking at the weekly time frame, you will only see the bar type for Year, Quarter, Month, and Week. It will not display the Day or Hour bar type.)
