How does one define a Doji? Especially when it comes to programming StockFetcher. Does the close have to exactly equal the open? Are there "rules" that have been developed that seem to be reliable? What about ... the open must be within 1% of the close? Or, 1/2% ? If possible, I'd really not like to have to learn the hard way ... by experience. Anything seem to work that you would share with me?

Thanaks .... Steve

Here is some code that will find most small body candles.

doji, hangman, hammer, abandoned baby, morning star etc

Play with the paramaters to filter to suit

Fetcher[
/* DOJI and other small body candle finder */
/* REMEMBER - dojis are an indicator that a reversal MIGHT occur*/
/* NOT that the reversal WILL occur!!!!! - So, use other confirmations*/

/* Set a few things here to get relationship between high, low, open and close */

set {hilo, high - low}
set {opclcalc, close - open}
set {hlocratio, opclcalc / hilo}
set {hlocpct, hlocratio * 100}
set {abshlocpct, abs(hlocpct)}

show stocks where price is between 1 and 200
offset is 0

/* Change numeric paramater higher or lower to find size of doji body desired */
abshlocpct < 10

/* Change decreasing to increasing to find doji, hammers, morning star etc at top */
/* Change increasing to decreasing to find doji, hammers, hangman etc at bottom*/
ema(3) decreasing last 3 days

volume(60) > 1000000

add column hilo
add column opclcalc
add column hlocratio
add column abshlocpct

/* Set sort field to hlocratio to sort from low red candle to high green candle*/
/* Set sort field to abshlocpct to sort all candles in numeric order regardless of red or green */
sort by hlocratio ascending]

have fun with it

Sorry I couldn't figure out how to make it clickable. Maybe some can help me? tnx
