To Marine2, your very welcome! I've been watching everyone from the sidelines for a long time now. All of you write some pretty amazing stuff to say the least. Thanks to everyone for your support and input, it means alot to us amateurs.
I've got another idea/question on how to look for 2 certain candlestick formations before the White Soldiers, but I have to figure out how to word this so as to not sound to much like a blithering idiot. Thanks again everyone !

Steve

O.K. I've pondered this idea long enough. I just don't know how to code this with the filter I posted earlier. Hence, I'll turn to you professionals yet again. My thoughts are simply this: While the Three White Soldiers show an upward trend, the overall idea is to buy in before this takes place. The 3 candles that lead up to this new trend go like this:
1st Candle: Red in color with a short upper shadow, no lower shadow and medium trading volume.
2nd Candle: Red in color with no upper shadow, the open equals the close of the previous candle with a short lower shadow and medium trading volume.
3rd Candle: White in color, Inverted hammer with a long upper shadow and a short lower shadow. With the close being below the previous candles lower shadow.
I'm reading in various places that with that last candle, the upward trend should begin with the next opening days candle and should continue on into the three white soldiers.
Does this idea even sound reasonable, or has this already been tried? Anyway, I can't code this myself. I need the input of the professionals here. And as always, thank you for your time and efforts in advance...

Very interesting filter chetron. It looks like the Algebra that I never paid attention to in high school. I wish I would have now though. Anyway, do I need to add my filter that I posted earlier to the beginning of this filter to make it complete? Or just let it fly as-is? Thanks again.

Thank you sir, I appreciate you working on this for me. I couldnt have done it without your input. I didn't get any results from your first filter today, so i'll just keep watching it to see how things start to play out. Thanks again for your time !

when i ran the last filter, i did not see very many 3 soldiers patterns following your blue,green, and red setup. maybe it is an intraday setup, but i wouldn't expect to see many dailies.

And i'm o.k. with that. After all, if the filter picks 5 stocks and they're all showing promise, doesn't sound like a bad filter to me.
Again, thanks for your help and advice with this. And time will no doubt tell the story of these filter ideas.
