Good morning !

I copied and pasted the following Pattern Breakaway Bullish but it does not work, it would be possible to obtain the right fix?

Breakaway Bullish Pattern

C4 <O4 and ABS (C4 - O4)> 0.5 * (H4 - L4) and C3 <O3 and H3 <L4 and C2 <C3 and C1 <C2 and ABS (C - O)> 0.6 * (H - L) EC> O and C> H3

Thank you in advance and greetings from Italy.

What is a "breakaway bullish pattern"?

The formula is definitely wrong in that it has spaces after the ABS in the ABS() functions and EC (which doesn't mean anything in it), but I don't know what it is actually supposed to do.

If I just correct what appear to be obvious syntax errors and re-arrange it a bit I would get the following.

C - O > .6 * (H - L) AND O4 - C4 > .5 * (H4 - L4) AND C > H3 AND L4 > H3 AND O3 > C3 AND C3 > C2 AND C2 > C1

But this may actually be missing something fundamental about the intended formula.
