Some of us take the whole prices range . Here i have taken only the price range of the body of tehecandle.
I have created an indicator to identify Inside bras and draw target levels on both the sides. Traders can easily convert it into a strategy and checkout the success rate.
This script is written to identify InsideBar and then plot target 1 and target 2 irrespective the direction of following candles.
Inside Bar is here defined clearly when the whole body( Not high/Low, but Open and Close Only of the candle falls within the whole body of previous candle
Few static Variables are declared for one time use to store the following values
High and Low of MotherCandle
Target 1 equal to size of the body of mother candle
Target 2 equal twice the size of Mother Candle
Depending upon the direction of the trend and breakout of the MotherCandle boundaries, target lines and labels are drawn.
Line.delete function is used to delete all the previous lines to keep the chart clean and not draw line on all every inside-bar detected in the past.
Label.delete function is used to delete all the previous labels for Target levels to clearly show current target levels.
barcolor() function is used to change the inside bar candle changed to "Yellow" .
