It generally say Syntax error ) or / it seeems to be picking out the end of the formula, but I'm putting them in correctly. Is there any other way of implememting PFC's into the TC2000 v12 platform, Thanks

Post one of the formulas you're trying to set up.  It may say "syntax error" as you type becuase it's constantly evaluating the formula. But if the formula is correct the error will go away.

 I've just tried this formmula and it's coming up with error /                 I don't what to do whatever formula I use?

Body as % of Shadow
ABS(C - O) / (H - L) * 100

Body Center as % of Shadow
(((C + O) / 2) - L) / (H - L) * 100

You need to try it with this...


ABS(C - O) / (H - L) * 100


or this...

(((C + O) / 2) - L) / (H - L) * 100


You can't include the name inside the editor.  Also, you can't include both formulas in one PCF. I tested each independently and they work fine.

There are many candlestick PCFs listed here: Boolean PCFs for Candlestick Patterns

Grave Stone Doji/Shooting Star
ABS(C-O)<(H-L)*0.33 AND O>C1 AND ((C+O)/2)-L<(H-L)*0.4 AND H=MAXH10

Thank you for the formula. I'm new to TC2000 and every PCF I bring from telechart reads value = false on the "test formula for MFST" which I gather is the default.

I copied and pasted your formula above into a new condition and it also tests "false".  Is the result "false" just a programming error wherein every pcf is identified as "false" or is there something wrong with the forumula? Thanks for your patience, as I say I'm a newbie to TC2000.

False means that the test symbol is returning False for your formula, as in "not passing".  It's not an error.

That is correct. False just means the result isn't True for the test symbol.

((WRSI4.1)<(WRSI4.2))AND((WRSI4)>(WRSI4.1))

It isn't working because it isn't valid syntax in the Personal Criteria Formula Language. The PCF Formula Descriptions topic has a pretty comprehensive list of the syntax which is valid. If it isn't in the list, it probably isn't going to work.

If it is the plain RSI indicator without Wilder's Smoothing:

RSI4 > RSI4.1 AND RSI4.1 < RSI4.2

If it is the RSI - Wilder's indicator with Wilder's Smoothing:

Although this very long formula will almost always return the same results as:

C > C1 AND C1 < C2
