    Default Thumbs up/thumbs down on each candle

    I was wondering if it's possible to "tag" each candle in an EA with a thumbs up or thumbs down (or whatever symbol). I'm writing an EA and it evaluates each candle for a certain criteria (good/ no good) and would like to have something show on the screen for each candle if it passes or fails. It would also have to be able to show up during the backtest when you open the chart. I know it sounds strange but I'm getting strange results when I back test my EA compared to forward testing and would like to see how it evaluated each candle. I'm new to programming EA and it seems you are "graphically limited" with what you can code in an EA compared to an indicator. Thanks.

    Hi wayneft and welcome,

    Yes that's possible,

    But on each candle, it will be heavy.

    You will have to limit the number of bars to study.
