S&R Zone Signals

Support & Resistance Zone Signals

This simple script is designed for structure based traders and trading strategies, although it can be used by anyone who uses price zones and basic candlestick patterns in their trading.

The purpose of this indicator is to generate trading alerts when these patterns occur in order to reduce the screen-time required to monitor setups.

How It Works

If price puts in an Engulfing Candle, a Doji Candle, a Hammer Candle or a Shooting Star Candle pattern within the zone you specify, then a trading signal and alert will be generated.

If you leave either zone set to 0 then that zone will not be used, meaning that you can use this to detect both support and resistance signals, or only signals at support, or only signals at resistance.

Must Engulf Wick:
If enabled, then engulfing candles must engulf the previous wick to be considered valid.
