    Hi Optuma, I’m currently investigating heikin ashi candles but can’t find any forum scripting comments incorporating these candles. I’m specifically looking at trialing the Optuma backtesting tool and would like a script which, among other criteria, will allow me to enter a trade when the first green(bullish) heikin ashi bar appears after at least three consecutive red(bearish) bars have occurred. Can anyone help please.

    With it being based on Heikin-Ashi candles, it’s a bit tricky, but it can be done.

    We have a Heikin-Ashi script function, so you need to be sure the other scripts are being wrapped around that.  Here is an example using the bullish candle after 3 bearish candles in a row:

    Here are the candles that match the criteria (grey shaded zone):


    Keep in mind, you can’t apply this script to a Candlestick chart with Heikin Ashi candles already enabled, it would become a Heikin Ashi of a Heikin Ashi and the results wouldn’t match. This script has been written to work with the Back Tester.
