create custom candlestick searches?
« on: June 19, 2012, 10:44:02 am »
Does the ability to create a custom candlestick search exist within trade-ideas?

Coul I create a custom formula to find a candlestick wedge pattern that I determine the parameters for? I would imagine since the program has the other candlestick pattern scans I could do something like this?

thanks

Any thoughts on this?  Do we have the ability to view the code of the current candlestick alerts?

Our Formula Editor allows you to create new filters based on calculations and variables that are already used by Trade Ideas elsewhere.  The Formula Editor gives you the opportunity to perform math functions against these pre-existing calculations.

Please see the many examples found in this thread for further explanation.

The Formula Editor does not allow for the custom creation of new calculations or variables like a 181-day SMA, etc.  Not at this time.
