Cobra, I notice the current candle is blank thru the action period, and only prints when the next timeframe starts. If this is typical and unavoidable with the candle indicator, would it not be better to use standard candles?Ignored
Hollow candles with no lower "shadows" indicate a strong uptrend: let your profits ride!
Hollow candles signify an uptrend: you might want to add to your long position, and exit short positions.
One candle with a small body surrounded by upper and lower shadows indicates a trend change: risk-loving traders might buy or sell here, while others will wait for confirmation before going short or long.
Filled candles indicate a downtrend: you might want to add to your short position, and exit long positions.
Filled candles with no higher shadows identify a strong downtrend: stay short until there's a change in trend.
Those HAs do have shadows (wicks), though. On the THV template they have been removed, but maybe reactivating them would be of help to you?
Go to the indicators properties, inputs tab, and set color1 same as color3, and color2 same as color 4. Then on the colors tab, check that they are showing correctly, if not, set 0 to the same color as 2 and 1 to the same color as 3. The wicks of the HAs will show. But neither they go in line with the actual price, for this you would have to set a color to the line graph in the chart's properties.
