What happened to this hallow candlestick

Postby wzero » 16 Oct 2014

If I understand correctly, hallow candlesticks always have up bars unfilled and down bars filled. But from my custom CL futures daily bar, there are some down bars (red) unfilled as well as some up bars (green) unfilled too. Please see the attached screen shot.

As reference, by changing chart type from hallow candlesticks to "normal" candlesticks. The unfilled red bars become green. As attached screen shot.

Well, this is OK. Although I only want true candlesticks with unfilled up bar and red/green wicks drawing style, In most situations it's same as the Hallow Candlesticks in MC.
