CandleStick Genetic Evolver

The CandleStick Genetic Evolver package includes a new Building Block Condition that lets you add Japanese candlestick pattern detection into your Strategy logic. All of the classical bullish, bearish, and neutral candlestick patterns are included. For users of Wealth-Lab, this package includes a powerful extension called the Candlestick Genetic Evolver. This extension uses a genetic algorithm to generate brand new, profitable candlestick patterns from your historical data. You can take the patterns that the Evolver generates and add them to your candlestick pattern library, for use in the supplied Building Block Condition.
