This script allows users with an understanding of The Strat to quickly highlight elements such as candle numbers, pivot machine guns, and custom combos. The usage for these concepts is given in the sub-sections below.

🔹 Candle Numbers

The Strat assigns a number to individual candles, this number is determined by the current candle position relative to the precedent candle, these include:

  • Number 1 - Inside bar, occurs when the previous candle range engulfs the current one.
  • Number 2 Up - Upside Directional Bar, occurs when the current price high breaks the previous high while the current low is lower than the previous high.
  • Number 2 Down - Downside Directional Bar, occurs when the current price low breaks the previous low while the current high is higher than the previous low.
  • Number 3 - Outside bar, occurs when the current candle range engulfs the previous one.

    The script can highlight the number of a candle by using labels but can also style candles by depending on the candle number. Inside bars (1) only have their candle wick highlighted, directional bars (2) (-2) only have their candle body highlighted. Outside bars have their candle range highlighted.

    Note that downside directional bars are highlighted with the number -2.

    Users can see the total amount of times a specific candle number is detected on the historical data on the dashboard available within the settings, as well as the number of times a candle number is detected relative to the total amount of detected candle numbers expressed as a percentage.

    It is also possible to see the current candle numbers returned by multiple timeframes on the dashboard.

    🔹 Searching For Custom Combos

    Combos are made of a sequence of two or more candle numbers. These combos can highlight multiple reversals/continuation scenarios. Various common combos are documented by The Strat community.

    This script allows users to search for custom combos by entering them on the Combo user setting field.

    When a user combo is found, it is highlighted on the chart as a box highlighting the combo range.

    🔹 Pivot Combos

    It can be of interest to a user to display the combo associated with a pivot high/low. This script will highlight the location of pivot points on the chart and display its associated combo by default. These are based on the Pivot Combo lookback and not displayed in real-time.

    Users can see on the dashboard the combos associated with a pivot high/low, these are ranked by frequency.

    🔹 Pivot Machine Gun (PMG)

    Pivot Machine Guns (PMG)s describe the scenario where a single price variation breaks the value of multiple past successive higher lows/lower highs. This can highlight a self-exciting behavior, where even more past successive higher lows/lower highs get broken.

    Users can select the minimum sequence length of successive higher lows/lower highs required for a PMG to be detected, as well the amount of these successive higher lows/lower highs that must be broken.
