Hello fellow traders!

I am trying to find a indicator that can point out the size of the wig.

Like, if the wig is X % of the range then paint bar.
X should be a input.

Anyone who know how to find?

Best regards
Gibban

Gibban,

if you mean "wick" this should be fairly easy to code (I am guessing that wig is a typo, as I can't place it on anything trading related). Are you looking at the distance from High to Low and compare it to the body of a candle or only the wick part outside of the candle body? Or do you mean something completely different?

Regards,
ABCTG

ABCTG,

Yes you are right, its a typo! I mean wick

What I mean is the size of the wick in % of the range of the candle.

Like show me indicator, paint bar if the wick is => than 20% of the total range of the bar.

Regards,
Gibban

Gibban,

I lift my wig then .
This should get you going.

 
Code
Inputs:
	BarColor 				( yellow ),
	WickPercentage			( 20 );
	
Variables:
	BodyRangeRelation			( 0 ),
	WickPercent				( 0 );
	
once 
begin
	WickPercent = IFF( WickPercentage >= 0 and WickPercentage <= 100, WickPercentage / 100, 1 ) ;
	WickPercent = 1 - WickPercent ; //we simply turn the check around, check if the body is smaller than 100 - WickPercentage 	
end ;

//compute body percantage of the candle 
if ( High - Low ) <> 0 then
	BodyRangeRelation = AbsValue( Open - Close ) / ( High - Low ) 
else
	BodyRangeRelation = 1 ;

//plot paint bar
if BodyRangeRelation < WickPercent then
	PlotPaintBar( High, Low, Open, Close, "PB", BarColor ) ;
Regards,

ABCTG
