Engulfing scanner with RSI filter

This indicator scans for engulfing and tweezer formations.


Features

  • Can monitor all symbols visible in your Market Watch window at the same time. Apply the indicator to just one chart and instantly monitor the entire market.
  • Monitors every timeframe, from M1 to MN, and sends you a real-time alert when an Engulfing formation is identified.
  • Uses RSI as a trend filter in order to properly identify potential reversals.

You can place the indicator on for instance EURUSD M5 chart and receive an alert from any pair and any timeframe of your choice.

Please note that due to the multifunctionality this indicator is not supported in the strategy tester. Please also note that due to the same reason the pattern will not be drawn automatically on the chart.
