    Thanks for this screener, Juanjo. I have a request to better identify the bullish or bearish pin bar: is it possible to insert the condition that the body of the pin bar must strictly be included in the range of the previous candle? This last condition can facilitate trading and show an optimal graphic situation.

      Pues creo que si se podría incluir dicha condición, no obstante, ten en cuenta que el cribador ya de por si da pocos resultados debido a las condiciones establecidas, y la condición que propones seria fácilmente identificable visualmente después de pasar el screener. Por otro lado, patrones de velas de reversión, como el hombre colgado, o el bebe abandonado, no lo identificaríamos al ser velas cuyo rango está fuera del rango de la vela anterior.

      No se entiende nada. Concretando, que si se podría poner la condición, pero no veo interesante incluirla.

    hola juanjo, muchas gracias por este screener que nos has compartido. creo que lo voy a utilizar en una estrategia.

  3. Pablo Carmona del Moral • 02/09/2019 #

    para el volumen he cambiado:
    // Volumen significativo
    donde el 2 indico el doble
    lo he puesto como un indicador en el dax y se me quedaban las señales puestas, no me devolvian nunca un “0” he cambiado los 2 ultimos if’s por esto, simplemente para el funcionamiento del indicador me diera un 0 en caso de que el pin bar ya no fuera ejecutable.

    if pbbc=1 or pbac=1 then
    If PBBc then
    If PBAc then
    return criterio as “PB”

    de todas maneras este code como screener tengo muchas ganas de probarlo como estrategia ya que debe funcionar a las mil maravillas…. Gracias y muy buena faena.

    Muchas Gracias Pablo, …Tengo varios screener, uno lo tengo adaptado para operar intradía, porque me parece una de las señales mas fiables. La utilización de volumen significativo de 2 veces el volumen medio, es un buen criterio, puesto que aunque el screener no lo tenga, personalmente tengo configurado el volumen para que me marque dicho criterio. Screener para mercado cerrado.
    – JJP-PinBar V.1 – marca Pin Bar con volumen significativo que sean máximos / minimos en periodo de 20, y rango superior a la media
    – JJP-PinBar V.2 – busca pin bar con volumen significativo que sean máximos / minimos en periodo de 5 y rango superior a la media.
    – JJP-PinBar V.3 – busca pin bar con volumen significativo que sean máximos / minimos en periodo de 5, pero su rango total no es superior a la media.

    Screener para intradías.
    – JJP- PinBar (intradía) – Localiza pin bar que sean máximos/minimos en periodos de 5 dias de forma previa a la vela en formación.
    Indicador Pin Bar.
    – JJP-I.Pinbar – colorea las pin bar de max/minimos de 5 dias de color blanco o negro.
