MetaTrader4 “SDS Engulfing Bar Alerts” Indicator

Introduction
This indicator marks Engulfing Bars (bars with a higher high and a lower low than the previous bar) on your chart. It will also send alerts when one forms, including via e-mail or push notification to your phone. It’s ideal for when you want to be notified of an outside bar set-up but don’t want to have to sit in front of your chart all day.

The Engulfing Bar Indicator at work

You can configure all the settings including:

  • Whether it should be “range engulfing” (so high is higher than previous bar and low is lower than previous bar),¬† or “body engulfing” (so just the candle body needs to engulf the previous bar’s body), or both (so range and body engulfing)
  • What symbol (if any) is plotted to highlight an outside bar with different ones for bull and bear engulfing bars
  • How far beyond the bar it is plotted
  • What alerts to receive out of pop-up desktop, e-mail and push notification to your phone
