An outside bar is another classic candlestick pattern, based on an opposite logic to an inside bar. Its range must overshadow the previous bar with a higher high and a lower low. In other words, an outside bar completely engulfs the bar before it. The 2 most important types of outside bars are the very famous and super powerful bullish engulfing and bearish engulfing candlesticks, which give very reliable signals of trend reversals.

An outside bar usually indicates high volatility and can lead to a strong and lasting price action changes.

The Strict mode of Outside Bar Pro lets you choose how outside bars are defined:

  • Strict mode disabled (traditional definition): Outside bars are identified by simply comparing the high & low of the current bar to the high & low of the previous bar.
  • Strict mode enabled (more strict definition): Outside bars are also identified by the condition said above, plus that the close of the current bar must be outside the high-low range of the previous bar.

The indicator also allows filtering outside bars based on their sizes. For example, you can define that outside bars must be at least 0.5 ATR or 10 ticks.

You can also filter an outside bar based on its direction in comparison to the bar before it:

  • Inverse direction: An outside bar and the previous bar have opposite directions (i.e. bullish engulfing or bearish engulfing).
  • Same direction: An outside bar and the previous bar go up or go down together.
  • Both: The direction is not taken into account.

Key features:

  • Identify outside bars based on the Strict mode you select
  • Allow specifying the minimum size of outside bars based on ATR or tick unit
  • Paint the region between high & low of previous bar to indicate the area of outside bar

■ Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

■ Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
