I have shown you before how to use 'CS for trade setups, for market structure and now for trend strength

In this chart I was trying to convey the idea and I thought that the concept was easy so i was kind of sloppy I guess
It turns out that it was not an easy concept
1st .. notice that the arrow carrying the number 21 should have stopped earlier
2nd .. when you do this, you take the last CS location and you draw a straight line to the right (some of my lines were not straight). When you are stopped by the first candle, that is the location you have to count from CS
3rd .. find an easy way to count. So someone sent me an idea to draw a vertical line between the 2 locations. I liked it
So, if things are now clear, then good. If not, then tell me and I'll redo the chart .. but more accurately
Example here, using the embedded tool, 20 is shown. Your arrow (based on the arrow start/end) shows 21.
Regarding the use of SSB for gauging the strength of the trend through the distance between price and SSB, I'm not sure how that can be achieved in reality and I have no idea what you mean by "the further apart price action is from the KUMO the stronger the trend is on a higher time frame", why not the current or the lower TF.
As for my trend terminology, in reality, a weak trend is when CS goes behind price but the market structure is still intact but I chose not to call it that because I see those cases (if certain parameters exist) as possible reversals. Now once CS goes behind price, there is a small window where you can call the trend weak but this is not a rule. So I prefer to leave such things for advanced discussions where it is possible to engage with the audience
Thank you anyway
I will be very interested to know the name of the book as I have not heard about it
