Auto Search for Pinbars with the Pinbar Detector for MT5

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Pinbar Detector indicator is designed to detect the Pinbar  pattern on the price chart, which is one of the most common Price Action trading patterns. When a pin bar is found, the Pin Bar Detector marks it with smiling faces, the color of which depends on the bullish or bearish nature of the pattern. The indicator is based on the use of price levels and the pinbar. When a signal is received, the indicator can send a notification both in the main window of the platform and by email.  

It is almost impossible to build an ideal graphical construction in the Pinbar Detector indicator, so it is most often used as an additional indicator. The ideal construction option is for the long nose to go beyond the boundaries of the eyes and the body to be located closer to the end of the candle. Most often used on intervals from H1 to W, when using small intervals, the probability of issuing false signals increases.

 A combination of candles creates a figure. The figure consists of three main parts - the left and right eyes and nose. The left eye is the last candle of the current trend. The nose is the main candle of the pattern, which determines the forecast for an imminent reversal and informs about the end of the current trend. The nose should be long, protruding beyond the boundaries of the left eye. The right eye is the formed bar of a new trend. The body of the candle should be several times smaller than its height.

Entry is carried out when the price rolls back for the level of closing the left eye or when the price falls below the level of the nose. The stop loss is set behind the nearest support or resistance level with both the left and right eyes. When setting a stop loss on the tip of the nose, the ratio of profit and risk suffers. Take profit can be set beyond the minimum of the left eye or to the next level of support or resistance.

Trading with the Pinbar Detector indicator

It is intuitively clear that when a face is formed with a growth value, a buy trade is made, and with a fall value, a sell trade is made. If a face with a fall value appears when making a buy trade, the trade should be closed. If face with a growth value was formed when making a sell trade, the trade should also be closed. Additional indicators should be used to obtain more accurate and reliable signals.
