here is the syntax for a green hammer, you can play with it and days ago to get the red hammer.

and close is more than 0.5% above open
and open minus low is more than 50% above close minus open

What i really need is to find setups like what happened to LSG on 12-07 with what looks like a red hammer then followed by what looks like a green hammer on 12-10. Today LSG was up 8% and i see this alot. After a downtrend is a plus. Can anyone code this?

From wikipedia
In order for a candle to be a valid hammer most traders say the lower wick must be two times greater than the size of the body portion of the candle, and the body of the candle must be at the upper end of the trading range.

neither one of those days for LSG look like a hammer to me

I completely agree & i'm a big idiot. But i find this set up to be very lucrative averaging 433% over several trades for the year so can someone code something that looks similar give or take to these candles. Let's watch STP & APP tomorrow, not the best examples though.

Here is an adaptation of a filter written by TheRumpledOne in 2006, which may have some commonalities with your help request.
The outputs showed instances of double ersatz hammers. Anecdotally, they sometimes appeared to be followed by an upward movement, and at other times by a downward movement. Use with great care, and at your own risk.
