A basic BloodHound Setup
(to filter Reversal Signal Bars for Breakout Failures on prior bars)
For a basic setup in BloodHound we use a couple of “Indicator Threshold Solvers”. https://www.sharkindicators.com/documentation/confidence-solvers/indicator-threshold/
Checking for a S/R Breakout Failure of 12 ticks on the current and the two prior bars, we filtered two Reversal Signal Bars (yellow boxes).
