The Underlying Concept / What is Momentum?
The Momentum shown is derived from a Mathematical Formula, SUPERTREND. When price closes above Supertrend Its bullish Momentum when its below Supertrend its Bearish Momentum. On the first bar bearish momentum is detected a resistance Level is made at the highest point of the previous bullish condition. On the first bar bullish momentum is detected a support Level is made at the lowest point of the previous bearish condition. As I become a better analyst I will find better techniques and this source code may become open-source, but as of now it remains protected. This indicator scans for bullish & bearish Momentum on the Timeframes selected by the user and when there is a shift in momentum on any of those time frames (price closes below or above SUPERTREND ) it notifies the trader with a Supply or Demand level with a unique color and Size to signify the severity of said level.
What is Severity?
Severity is How we differentiate the importance of different Highs and Lows. If Momentum is detected on a higher timeframe the Supply or Demand Level is updated. The Color and Size representing that higher timeframe will be shown. Demand and Supply Levels made by higher Timeframes are more SEVERE then a demand level made by a lower Timeframe.
- If you want to optimize the rate of signals to better fit your trading plan you would change the Factor input and ATR Length input. Increase factor and ATR Length to decrease the frequency of signals and decrease the Factor and ATR Length to increase the frequency of signals.
- to ensure the correct calculation of Support and Resistance levels change BAR_INDEX. BAR_INDEX creates a buffer at the start of the chart. For example: If you set BAR_INDEX to 300. The script will wait for 300 bars to elapse on the current chart before running. This allows the script more time to gather data. Which is needed in order for our dynamic lookback length to never return an error(Dynamic lookback length cant be negative or zero). The lower the timeframe the greater the amount of bars need. For Example if I open up a 30 sec chart I would enter 5000 as my BAR_INDEX since that will provide enough data to ensure the correct calculation of Support and Resistance levels.
Time Frame Inputs
- The indicator has 3 Time Frame Displays where you can choose how SEVERE You want the Supply and Demand Levels. For Example: 1min, 3min, 5min, 15 min Levels, 60 min levels Weekly Levels, etc.....The higher the Timeframe Selected the more SEVERE the Level.
- Use the Amount of time Frames input to increase or limit the amount of time frames that will be displayed onto the chart.
- The toggle (Trend or Basic) option Lets the trend determine the colors of the Support and Resistance Levels or Basic where the color is strictly based on if its a high or a low ( Trend = HH,HL,LL,LH)
- Toggle options (Close) and (High & Low) creates Support and Resistance Levels using the Lowest close and Highest close or using the Lowest low and Highest high.
Toggle on both or toggle off both in order to use both these values when determining the trend of your chart. For Example this would mean (Price has to close higher then the highest high. Not only make a higher high or a
higher close) and the inverse (Price has to close lower then the lowest low. Not only make a lower low or a lower close)
How Trend Is being Determined ?
(Previous Supply Level > Current Supply Level ) if this statement is true then its s LH so the trend is bearish if this statement is false then its a HH so the trend is bullish
(Previous Demand Level > Current Demand Level ) if this statement is true then its a LL so the trend is bearish if this statement is false then its a HL so the trend is bullish
(Close > Current Supply Level ) if this statement is true technically price made a HH so the trend is bullish
(Close < Current Demand Level ) if this statement is true technically price made a LL so the trend is bearish
- Fully customize how you display and label Market Structure in specific timeframes. Line Length, Line Width, Line Style, Label Distance, Label Size, Label Background Size, and Background Color can all be customized.
- Lastly Is the Trend Chart. To Easily verify the current trend of any timeframes displayed by this indicator toggle on Chart On/Off . You also get the option to change the Chart Position and the size of the Trend Chart
*****The Current charts timeframe has to lower then a month to ensure correct calculation of Supply and Demand Levels*****
