Introducing Nison Candle Scanner

I have personally designed Nison Candle Scanner to find patterns based on my own strategies


With Nison Candle Scanner you get my in-depth knowledge and experience I’ve worked hard to develop. I’ve literally written the “Bibles” of candlestick charting.

And it’s so remarkably easy to use. You don’t need to know how to program a computer. You don’t need to write any formula code. You don’t even need to know how to tell the difference between a “hammer” and a “doji.” That’s our job.



You just pick the pattern you want from a list and – in real time – you’ll see those signals in your markets pattern pop-up right on your computer screen!

Then you can use your favorite technical tools to zero in on the markets with confirming signals to help put the odds in your favor and maximize your trading potential.

It's the #1 Goal of Traders Everywhere:
Spend LESS Time Looking for Potential Winners

  • Breeze through the big picture

    Smart traders know how to breeze through their “big picture” analysis as quickly as possible so they can focus on individual trading situations.

  • Eliminate repetitive tasks

    Forget about manually slogging through chart after chart trying to find every market that’s currently in a bullish engulfing pattern – and hoping that what you’re looking at really IS a bullish engulfing pattern.

  • No complicated code

    And forget about pulling your hair out while trying to write your own computer code to pinpoint these candlestick patterns yourself.

Designed To Make Your Life Easier

When I decided to develop my own advanced candle highlighting software, I worked with my programmers to create a “push-button” easy way to identify my favorite candlestick patterns.

So they took all of my rules for the most powerful and proven candlestick chart patterns and did all the complex programming to make them work lightning fast!

Then I spent months and months verifying the results. I wanted to be absolutely certain that each of these candlestick patterns was 100% accurate.

If you want to see all the markets in a morning star, then it’s my responsibility to make sure that you’re really looking at a morning star.

Thanks to the 25+ years I’ve spent totally immersed in the world of candlestick charting techniques and the proper use of them, you can be certain that you won’t find anyone else on the planet better qualified to have working for you.

This Is How It Filters The Candlestick Patterns

With Nison Candle Scanner™, you can filter a universe of markets (stocks, indexes, Forex, futures, etc) for any specific candlestick signal — and then watch as ALL the markets with that pattern will be listed. Then just click on a market to view the chart!

NCS for NinjaTrader works on daily or longer-term charts. It even works on intraday with the FREE "Nison Intraday Scanner" included as your special bonus for a limited time. (a $295 value)

Step 1. Pick one or more of my 28 favorite candle signals. (These signals are all pre-programmed and ready to use!) In this example, I've picked a Bullish Engulfing Pattern.

Step 2. Choose a single market, or a market group for which you want to find the patterns, such as S&P 500. You can even put your own list of markets to filter (i.e., the 10 markets you track most closely).  For this example I chose the Dow stocks to filter for a bullish engulfing pattern.

Step 3. All of the markets that are currently in the pattern we've selected show up in this quick and easy pick list.

Step 4. When you view the chart (in this case MMM) the pattern's signal is highlighted on the chart for you to view in an instant!

...And Highlights The Patterns On Your Charts

In addition to finding all of the markets that are currently in a particular candlestick pattern, you can also use Nison Candle Scanner™ to quickly identify all of the different candlestick patterns that appeared in a specific time frame for any individual stock or market.

And there are two ways to have the Nison pattern displayed: the full name of the pattern (as show above) or as an abbreviation of the pattern name.

As a bonus, if you use the abbreviation of the pattern name, all you need do is click on the abbreviation and the full name is displayed at the lower left.

Plus Custom Chart Alerts

Select a market (or a group of markets) and in real-time get alerts when ANY of those markets hit the Nison candle patterns you want to follow. Works in any time frame. This is a great time saver!

Step 1. Pick any (or all!) of the pre-programmed Nison candle signals to automatically track in your markets.

Step 2. Customize your alerts with a pop-up window, special audio alerts, and more!

Step 3. Choose the markets you want Nison Candle Scanner to automatically track for you and you're ready to go!

Step 4. When any of your Nison candle signals occur on any of your markets, you'll be alerted instantly!

Also set up your Alert Window to be notified in REAL TIME when any of the candle signals and markets you're following hit a candle signal.

In this example, the alert is set to show bull candle signals as green and bear signals as red.

  • q-iconWill I be able to see the definitions of the candlestick signals?

    All of these are propriety candlestick patterns and they take into account not only the definition of the candlestick signal but such key considerations as what is an up or down trend, what is a “long” real body, when are the shadows too large or small for certain patterns, and other factors. Because they are proprietary, the underlying definitions are not publicly available.

  • q-iconIs NinjaTrader a trading or charting platform?

    One of the reasons we chose Ninja is because they offer a no cost charting package that is easy to use. And you can even get a free data feed- either on a delayed basis from Yahoo or real time when you have an account from one of Ninja’s selected brokers. And NinjaTrader gives you the flexibility to convert it to a trading platform for a onetime fee. More details at

  • q-iconWhat if I am currently using another platform? Do I need to replace it with NinjaTrader?

    No. Many traders have told us they continue using their current platform and also use Nison Candle Scanner on the free NinjaTrader platform at the same time. This allows them to use the scanning power of NCS and then further examine those results in their main platform.
