Market strength & direction candlesticks

Market strength & direction candlesticks

This Indicator was programmed by Nicolas on this website and as I saw that the idea was interesting I was testing it and I warned that with some instruments (depending on the volatility) or depending on the timeframe it was not the same as weekly programming with the MACD as oscillator trend with (12,26,9) and the Adx as a force oscillator in 14 periods in many occasions did not give the most correct information that could be expected, so try to improve it a bit so that each Trader or Investor can adjust it to your taste.

There is a whole system behind this indicator that is quite complex, the most important thing is that the candles do not have the opening and closing as the Japanese candles ; nevertheless it gives very good information when operating, since after a strong upward trend with many green candles the appearance of a red candle and make a new maximum usually warns of the immediate change of market. I also added two more colors that if we use a trend oscillator in this case to choose between MACD, Momentum or Di of the Adx, so that it would be interesting to know if the price was located above or below the level 0 with which I added the dark blue candle for when oscillator crosses the level 0 up and the pink candle to know when the candle crosses the 0 level down is very interesting to see the bounces on this level 0 with alternating candles of these colors and then follow the route If someone wants to know more information about how this indicator works I explain it in the video. (from the minute 24 or so, so you do not waste time).

It is an indicator to make more visual changing the colors of the candles the force that has a continuous movement of the Price.
It is not more than applying the information of a Moment or Tendency oscillator and an oscillator to determine the force of the movement in progress.

For this and because each Graphic Temporality requires its small adjustments and also the sensitivity of each Investor feels more comfortable with some more Aggressive information and others more Conservative I have configured this Indicator with different possibilities

As Oscillators of Moment or Tendencies we have 3 options in Parameters we have: OscillatorTendenial = 1 the MACD = 2 the Momentum and the = 3 the DI (of the Adx) besides as you will see you can configure each one of the parameters of these oscillators with such get more or less sensitivity

To have the information of the force of the movement in progress we will be able to use two Oscillators MetodoFuerza = 1 the ATR or AverageTrueRange and with the MetodoFerza = 2 the ADX as with the Trend oscillators here we can also adjust the different parameters of the period to get more or less Sensitivity

The operation of the oscillator is very basic if the trend oscillator is directed upwards where it is on its course and at the same time the market oscillator is also upwards we will have a green candle

In the case that the Tender Oscillator goes in an upward direction, however, the strength of the market is decreasing then a cyan or light blue colored candle will be drawn.
In the event that the Tendency Oscillator is decreasing or in a bearish direction and also the Force Oscillator is also decreasing then the candle will be drawn in gold if you notice it is usually the color of the candles in the minor corrections or at the beginning of major corrections
In case the Trend Oscillator draws in a bearish direction and the Force oscillator goes in a rising direction then draw the red candle

These are the main candles or the 4 main colors green cyan gold red however taking advantage of the information of Trend oscillators, I have also configured 2 additional colors that point to the crossing of the trend oscillator of level 0 understanding that this information is important both to locate the possible movement path and when the oscillator both above and below usually reach this level and there again bounces this type of movement is clearly reflected because usually draw together a candle of each color For when cross the level 0 upwards the candle is dark blue and for when it crosses the level 0 downwards then the candle drawn is fuchsia (electric rose)
Regardless of the information of these dark blue and fuchsia candles that is very valuable to be able to locate the possible movement the way to operate with these candles is the following
While doing an impulse green candles if it is bullish and red candles if you are bearish you will see that each candle gets a new maximum or minimum when this does not happen and a candle does not make new maximum in uptrend or new minimum in downtrend Lo what happens is that in this same candle or the next maximum the price should make a minimum correction to touch the EMA8 (Media mobil Exponential 8 periods or TLINE) with what is more usual to change the color of the candles

In the case of an upward trend with green candles depending on the sensitivity, we will surely obtain a first red candle and subsequently different golden candles
Depending on the importance of the correction this could be only with golden or even red candles the end of the correction will be marked by different cyan candles at the time of appearing the first green candle again can be the entry for the most prudent to follow the impulse

In case of bearish trend just the opposite after minimos with red candles a green candle appears and then several cyan candles, if the correction is greater even green candles may appear at the time that another red candle appears and a series of golden candles to which a new red candle appears after the impulse resumes
