TradeStation Candlestick Functions

TradeStation supplies candlestick pattern functions for strategies. However, many of these candlestick functions will not work with walkforward strategies if you optimize using the length parameter passed to the functions. They call the function XAverage, which does not work with walkforward strategies when optimizing the length parameter.

I have written WFSafe replacements for these the candlestick functions that call WFSafe_XAverage instead of XAverage. For a list of effected functions, please see Using Walkforward Safe Series Functions for more information.
