Thanks for the posts...

...and this is what I mean. I use the Wides for Targets and the Narrows can be used for obvious price action reversal. Candles have been darkened to help highlight just the indicator candles of significance.
My experience has been that Wide Range Bars lend themselves to better trading. Meaning that they signal a heavy move and momentum usually carries through. I simple draw a Fib on the whole candle to measure the whole price action of the respective bar. Gives easy targets.
Thanks for doing this Chris. You should checkout Thomas Bulkowski site http://thepatternsite.com/CPIUpdate.html. Maybe this is where Bulkowski obtained the NR-7 idea. Good work you do!
Thanks Chris, great tool! Going straight in the tool box and on the chart.
