The indicator is based on two technical indicators: the Rate of Change (ROC) and the Relative Strength Index (RSI). The ROC measures the speed of price changes over a given period, while the RSI measures the strength of price movements. By combining these two indicators, this trading indicator aims to provide a comprehensive view of the market momentum.
An RSI below its oversold level, which shows as a green background, in addition to a ROC crossing above its moving average (turns green) signals a buying opportunity.
An RSI above its overbought level, which shows as a red background, in addition to a ROC crossing below its moving average (turns red) signals a selling opportunity.
Traders can use this indicator to identify potential momentum shifts and adjust their trading strategies accordingly.
The ROC component of the indicator uses a user-defined length parameter to calculate the ROC and a simple moving average (SMA) of the ROC. The color of the ROC line changes to green when it is above the ROC SMA and to red when it is below the ROC SMA. The ROC SMA color changes whether it's above or below a value of 0.
The RSI component of the indicator uses a user-defined length parameter to calculate the RSI, and user-defined RSI Low and RSI High values to identify potential buy and sell signals. When the RSI falls below the RSI Low value, a green background color is applied to the chart to indicate a potential buy signal. Conversely, when the RSI rises above the RSI High value, a red background color is applied to the chart to indicate a potential sell signal.
This indicator is intended to be used on any time frame and any asset, and can be customized at will.
