the index recognizes pin bars (pin bar) for the specified periods and informs regarding the appearance of fresh setups (alarms in the terminal, PUSH messages to smartphones, mails to email).

On the present chart period, the patterns are highlighted in color.

it is possible to pick pin bars depending on the quantity and position of the vertex relative to the previous bars.

the index will help you in trading using the cost Action method, and the additional preferences will make it possible for you to freely experiment with various variations of pin bars outside the generally accepted definitions.

The Min Bar Size on MN1 – Min Bar Size on M1 parameters define the minimum required bar range (High-Low distance) for each timeframe. Bars with a smaller range are ignored. A negative value of the parameter disables the search for patterns and the drawing of the indicator on the corresponding timeframe. By default, the optimal values of the minimum ranges are set and the search for patterns on timeframes less than an hour is disabled.

The signal of the “Pin-bar” pattern is the breaking of its border, opposite to the “tail”. The stop loss is placed behind the tip of the “tail”. To improve the accuracy of the signals, it is recommended to trade only in the direction of the trend. This approach reduces the number of signals, but significantly increases their reliability.

When working with periods of less than one day, it is recommended to set a stop loss for the nearest extreme or border of the trading range to avoid false triggering.

The appearance of a pin bar is an indirect sign of the end of the current trend wave.

Pin bars are divided into “bullish” and “bearish”. The criteria for their recognition are shown in the last screenshot.
