Hello, how can I make the arrow appear only when the candle is opposite .. for example if the arrow is down the candle has to be green.

sorry for my bad English.

I leave an image so that you understand me better:


this is my mq5 code:

//--- indicator settings
#property indicator_chart_window
#property indicator_buffers 2
#property indicator_plots 2

#property indicator_type1 DRAW_ARROW
#property indicator_width1 1
#property indicator_color1 0xFFAA00
#property indicator_label1 "Buy"

#property indicator_type2 DRAW_ARROW
#property indicator_width2 1
#property indicator_color2 0x0000FF
#property indicator_label2 "Sell"

//--- indicator buffers
double Buffer1[];
double Buffer2[];

double myPoint; //initialized in OnInit
int Pecas_handle;
double Pecas[];
double Pecas_4[];
double Low[];
double Pecas_3[];
double High[];

void myAlert(string type, string message)
  {
   if(type == "print")
      Print(message);
   else if(type == "error")
     {
      Print(type+" | Pecas Arrows @ "+Symbol()+","+IntegerToString(Period())+" | "+message);
     }
   else if(type == "order")
     {
     }
   else if(type == "modify")
     {
     }
  }
