New Indicator to Trade Price Action — Basing Candlesticks

December 2, 2019 by

Quite some time ago, one of our forum members asked for an indicator to detect basing candles in MetaTrader. Today I present a new free indicator both for MT4 and MT5 — Basing Candlesticks.

It is a minimalistic indicator that compares the body size of the candle against its high-low range and, if the ratio is less than 50% (or anything else you set via input parameters), draws a line/candlestick on top of it. This is said to be useful in price action supply and demand analysis, but I am yet to find some actual application for this indicator. Anyway, I hope it will come handy to you if you are into this trading style.

The indicator offers all kinds of alerts — native, push, email, and sound. However, I don’t recommend turning them on unless you decrease the aforementioned percentage ratio to 10% or below. Otherwise, you will be drawn in the flow of alerting signals.
