You should pay more attention to the abnormal ones among the pin bars. What I mean by abnormal pin bar is that the long leg is at least 3 times larger than the body.
With this indicator, you can set your own abnormal pin bar settings. The indicator will highlight abnormal pin bars according to the settings you specified.
The indicator uses the following three factors to indicate abnormal pin bar:
- Minimum body ratio in the pattern in percent
- Minimum ratio of the long shadow to the body
- Minimum ratio of the long shadow to the short shadow
Also, there is a volume strength check to confirm the pin bar. If the volume where the pin bar is formed is greater than the 20 volume average, it indicates that the pin bar is more important. Of course, confirming the pin bar with the volume is optional and you can disable it in settings if you wish.
You can use the highlights of this indicator as an entry signal if the pin bar appears at the trend key levels or in support or resistance zones.
