Pin Bar Detector with Filters

The indicator finds the Pin bars on the chart, perhaps, the most powerful Price Action pattern. The indicator has additional filters, and the user can:

  • specify all parameters of the pin bar size as a percentage of the total candle size (minimum length of the large wick, maximum values of the short wick and body size).
  • set the number of fractals for the last N bars, the Pin bar is based on, i.e. define the support/resistance levels.
  • specify the required number of bearish/bullish bars before the Pin bar.
  • specify the number of bars before the Pin bar, which form the prior trend before a reversal.
  • it is possible to filter out the filter of the moving average, so that the signal about Pin bar appearance is generated only along the trend! In addition, there are 2 options to determine the trend - 1) Price above/below MA; 2) Inclination angle of the MA must be greater than the specified value.
  • check the volumes on the Pin bar, a rise of volume is usually observed on a good Pin bar.


  • Right_Direction_of_Pin - should the body of the Pin bar be in the same direction (bullish/bearish)
  • Opposite_Bars_Before - the number of bars in the other direction BEFORE the Pin bar (bullish for bearish Pin bar, bearish for bullish Pin bar)
  • Max_Body_Size_Percent - maximum size of the Pin bar body as a percentage of the total candle size
  • Max_Short_Wick_Percent - maximum size of the short wick of the Pin bar as a percentage of the total candle size
  • Min_Long_Wick_Percent - minimum size of the long wick of the Pin bar as a percentage of the total candle size
