    Fakey Without Pin Bar
    not showed in indicator list

    1. Yannick says:

      They are not displayed on the screenshot since it is an older screenshot. They also maybe not be included in the demo version. But they are in the full version for sure.

  9. ruhail says:

  12. Andrew says:

    Hi Yannick

    I would like to test out each candlestick individually, but currently its set to ‘True’ as default for all candles.
    It’s tedious to individually change all the ‘True’ to ‘False’.
    Could include two additional parameters to turn all to ‘True’ or ‘False’ so i could test them individually?

    1. Yannick says:

      Unfortunately, this is not possible. But you can save and restore the settings to save time.

  13. Andrew says:

    Hi Yannick

    I downloaded the Demo Version, but found that certain candlesticks weren’t correct, like an inverted hammer should have been a shooting star and certain Engulfing candles was not identified.

    Is the Full version a more up to date version from the Demo?

    Please advice. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yannick says:

      When have you download the demo version? I have fixed this on October 28. Please the new version and try it again.

    2. Yannick says:

      You can also use this topic to discuss changes.

  14. Andrew says:

    Hi Yannick

    Is it possible to come up with a PDF showing how each of these Candle Patterns work?


    1. Yannick says:

      If I have time I will make a description of all patterns. But for now you have to google them.

      1. daleycw5 says:

        Hello Yannick;

        I’ve used other candlestick patterns app, but, yours tested ok ( 2 days ), so far.

        How do you confirm the accuracy of your definitions for your Japanese Candlesticks ?

        I mean, is there a main source like Bulkowski, Steve Nison, etc., and you provide the logic ?

        1. Yannick says:

          I do not have one specific site where I got the definitions from. I searched each pattern individually.

  15. greatness says:

    Yannick, after reading the above, I don’t get what is available in the paid version…
    …you only wrote about the free version…

    1. Yannick says:

      The full version does exactly the same as the free but it shows all patterns and not only 4 of them.

  16. koko says:

    very good

    1. Yannick says:

      Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. sakis ioannidis says:
