API documentation for pandas_ta.candles.cdl_inside Python function.

cdl_inside(open_, high, low, close, asbool=False, offset=None, **kwargs)[source]#

Candle Type: Inside Bar

An Inside Bar is a bar that is engulfed by the prior highs and lows of it’s previous bar. In other words, the current bar is smaller than it’s previous bar. Set asbool=True if you want to know if it is an Inside Bar. Note by default asbool=False so this returns a 0 if it is not an Inside Bar, 1 if it is an Inside Bar and close > open, and -1 if it is an Inside Bar but close < open.


Default Inputs:


inside = (high.diff() < 0) & (low.diff() > 0)

if not asbool:

inside *= candle_color(open_, close)


open_ (pd.Series): Series of ‘open’s high (pd.Series): Series of ‘high’s low (pd.Series): Series of ‘low’s close (pd.Series): Series of ‘close’s asbool (bool): Returns the boolean result. Default: False offset (int): How many periods to offset the result. Default: 0


fillna (value, optional): pd.DataFrame.fillna(value) fill_method (value, optional): Type of fill method
