shadow_h = high_h - low_h
body_h = abs(open_h - close_h)
bodyMid_h = 0.5 * (open_h + close_h) - low_h

shadow = high - low

bodyRed = open > close and body > (0.3 * shadow)
bodyGreen = close > open and body > (0.3 * shadow)

@DovCaspi isnt there a mistake here : shadow_h = high_h - low_h ?

I think shadow should be define in two ways : upper shadow = high_h - max(open_h,close_h) and lower shadow = min(open_h,close_h)-low_h

I tweak the indicator and I see much better hammers ;)
It lags because it uses confirmation. if bearish signal, indicator checkout that next candle is red. if bullish signal ( eg hammer ) indicators checks for next candle = green ;)
Does it lag thru the eod. Basically, Could you place and AA trade on the indicator or does it not show up until the next morning?

Thanks for the indicator. The only negative is that it's lagging (1 day). How would you tweak it so that it's showing real-time info on the candle that is being formed? TIA
Thanks for sharing. Very good indicator.
