I am new to stock fetcher. I am trying to get candle with shadows significantly longer than the body, hammer type patterns.
I put in the following.
set{var1, open - close}
set{var2, close - low}
open is above close
and var2 / var1 is above 2.5
Instead of hammers I am getting full bodies and no shadows. I am at a loss.
I want to use this in conjunction with other filters but if I cannot get past step 1, the rest is useless

thank you Chetron. That did it. I guess I was trying to put too much into one line. If you feel like helping a novice, I posted a help message on the "backtesting" forum a few days ago but have had no response. Your help would be appreciated.

My advice on the hammer candle is buy the next day only if the stock trades +.10 above the previous days high.Enter a stop -.10 below the previous days high.Sell on market close......
