Hello,

I am just trying to find a simple EA that will email me when a CANDLE close with a WICK greater than a specified number of pips.

Anyone know where i can find this?

I've coded the indicators you wanted for both MT4 and MT5. Please, see the attachments and let me know if anythings should be changed. BTW, it should be indicator, not EA, since it doesn't trade.

Enivid! I was checking out your indicator and I was wondering if there is a way to modify it a bit. Is there a way to put an arrow up/down for the wicks that are x amount of pips.

Basically the indicator would only put an arrow once the candle has been closed and if it was x amount of pips (determined on input by user). And for back-testing, if the indicator could put all arrows in the chart even those candles that already have passed? So when you scroll back into the past you would be able to see the arrows?

Maybe it's asking too much but I believe we would all benefit from it

Thanks so much! :)

Anyway, I've decided to go with plain numbers displayed in different colors. See the attachments. Indicator is available for MT4 and MT5 and it adds functionality to the previous. Display can be turned off by setting the DisplayWickLimit to something ridiculously high. This limit is given in "normal" pips, not fractional and doesn't depend on your broker.
