    Yes this is partially true, "Four and Five Black Crows" are not predefined scan options. If you try to type them in manually you will get a syntax error like the following;

    "Your scan syntax is incorrect. Could not parse "FOUR BLACK CROWS" located in the clause "FOUR BLACK CROWS IS TRUE" "

    Now you could easily write you own candlestick scan. Here's a similar example that explains how to do this. Just lay it out on paper and then enter it into the scan engine one line (candle) at a time.

    Here's a snippet from that article.
