Hello,

New user, I know the screen for weekly engulfing candles is as follows

"pattern is weekly Bearish Engulfing and chart-display is weekly"

However, this screen is based on the body only. How can I adapt this screen so that it takes into account the shadow as well?

Thanks.

The credit for this code goes to Alf. This is a set of code that finds either topping or bottoming tails.

/* Tails */

/* Bottoming Tails */

/* Consecutive Down Days */
set{daysClose_Down, days(Close above Close 1 day ago,100)}

set{RangeA, High - Low}
set{MinCloOp, min(Close,Open)}
set{TailRngA, MinCloOp - Low}
set{TailRatioA, TailRngA / RangeA}

set{Tail_A, count(daysClose_Down 1 day ago above 1, 1)}
set{Tail_B, count(Low is below MinCloOp, 1)}
set{Tail_C, count(TailRatioA is above .50, 1)}
set{Tail_D, count(Close below EMA(10) , 1)}
set{Tail_1, Tail_A * Tail_B}
set{Tail_2, Tail_1 * Tail_C}
set{TailBot, Tail_2 * Tail_D}
/* ---------- */

/* Topping Tails */

/* Consecutive Up Days */
set{daysClose_Up, days(Close below Close 1 day ago,100)}

set{RangeAA, High - Low}
set{MaxCloOp, max(Close,Open)}
set{TailRngAA, High - MaxCloOp}
set{TailRatioAA, TailRngAA / RangeAA}

set{Tail_AA, count(daysClose_Up 1 day ago above 1, 1)}
set{Tail_BB, count(High is above MaxCloOp, 1)}
set{Tail_CC, count(TailRatioAA is above .50, 1)}
set{Tail_DD, count(Close above EMA(10), 1)}
set{Tail_11, Tail_AA * Tail_BB}
set{Tail_22, Tail_11 * Tail_CC}
set{TailTop, Tail_22 * Tail_DD}
/* ---------- */

/* Tails Top OR Bottom */
set{Tail_topORbot, TailBot + TailTop}
/* ---------- */

I am not sure the coding needs to be that complex.

Basically, I need a way to express that the current week's range is greater than the previous week's range,
shown on a weekly chart.

I can work from there.

Range as in,

the high of the current week is above the previous week's high,
and the low of the current week is below the previous week's low.
