Any chart pattern can be as simple as one or two trend lines, each trend line consist of two or three highs or lows. But the difficult part is that there are many possibilities of each chart pattern, due to series combination of number of bars and the price difference between the highs and lows.
For example, in Ascending Triangle pattern, the number of bars between the 2 Lows(troughs) which form the lower trend line can be 8, but it can also be 14, 20 or even 30. This is because a chart pattern can take shape either in a short period of time or in a long term.
Furthermore, the price difference between the the 2 Lows(troughs) which form the lower trend line may vary. In a short term(could be small time frame or formation with fewer bars) Ascending Triangle pattern, the price difference could be much smaller than it in a long term one.
For example, price difference in a 5 mins chart is 8 tick size. But it may be more than 20 tick size in a 1 hour chart.

- Lowbar1: The number of bars between the first Low and the 2nd High
- Lowbar2: The number of bars between the 2nd Low and the last/current High
- Limit: the price difference in tick size between the 2 Lows(troughs) which form the lower trend line. If you set it to 5, it means the price difference is at least 5*tick size.
Note: if you set Highbar1 to 6, it means the The number of bars between the first High and the first Low is at least 6, not exact equal to 6. It can be 7 or any number greater than 6.
