In the book, The New Technical Trader by Tushar Chande and Stanley Kroll there is a part that talks about candlestick analysis and how the wicks play a role on how the price will behave. When wick lengths increase then there could be uncertainty. Weakening of support and resistance levels can also be seen by the size of the candlestick wicks or shadows. Shoutouts...

Simple visualisation of Average True Range in Pinescript V4.
The script has two modes: Running and Trailing.
In Running mode, it continuously displays the ATR above and below the price. Specifically, it displays the High and Low price plus and minus the ATR times a user-supplied multiplier. This can be helpful for visualising volatility.
In Trailing mode, it...
If you think of a perfect doji candle, where the wicks on top and bottom are exactly the same, that's a candle with a delta of 0. What this indicator does is show the delta/difference between wicks, if the top wick is longer than the bottom wick it show's sell pressure/bear interest, which is displayed as a red bar and vice versa for buy/bull pressure, which is...
A means for tracking price ranges for gap up/down and longer buying/selling tails. This may have some value for buying/selling opportunities based on the relative significance of the range. The look back period is adjustable and works for any time frame. If you have any success using it leave some feedback.
I have collected the four PivotBoss indicators into one big indicator. Eventually I will delete the individual ones, since you can just turn off the ones you don't need in the style controller. Cheers.
When the market has been trending lower then suddenly forms a reversal wick candlestick , the likelihood of
a reversal increases since buyers...
Note: This script does not perform well on its own and is meant to inspire other coders, just sharing it because why not :)
The idea is simple, highest only gets calculated for green candles, lowest only gets calculated for red candles. a yellow dot gets created when a candle gets below lowest line and closes bullish, vise versa for red dots.
Hope someone can use it.
I've created this as a confirmation indicator to help know when market conditions are favorable to enter a trade. It measures volume, volatility, and ATR. It is not intended to tell you when to enter/exit the market, but use it with another indicator such as the mirror macd to filter out many losses and avoid entering the market during low volume or excessive...

This script measures the maximum and average length of upper and lower wicks. While this can be used as a volatility gauge and to see if there is more support or resistance, it's primary use is to not get wicked out on stops, by adding one of these numbers to the the Moving Average or S/R level that one is using for a Stop, plus maybe a few points of buffer.
Shadow/Wick Moving Average
- Moving Average comparing top and bottom Shadow / Wick length
- Shadows represent price levels that have been hit, but did not close
- Not an all-purpose, all-in-one indicator for entry and exit
- Used as a visual aid to better understand price movement. For example. if price is bearish, but the Shadow MA is showing high, positive...
This indicator is intended to evaluate the quality of the bullish candles (close > open).
It will calculate the average size of the bullish candles from the last 200 periods. I'm assuming that a bullish candle with a superior wick or shadow equal or less than 25% of the total size of the bar is a good disruption candle. You can adjust at your own taste.
I made this for personal use, for a indicator, but bcs I dont see a script like this I wanted to just post it for other ppl.
This is just a script that tells the candles based on %, including wicks. (wicks are inverted to save space and bcs I prefer it)
This works for all markets.
