An FVG is formed when a candle has an 'empty' body, leaving a gap. These areas are often filled before the market continues to trend in its original direction.
In practical terms, FVGs serve to highlight support areas (bullish FVGs) and resistance zones (bearish FVGs). As a gap is filled, signaling the end of the existing imbalance, it tends to foreshadow an impending price reversal.
While this approach is inherently contrarian, individuals seeking a more trend-following strategy can opt to use FVG identification as straightforward signals. This entails taking a long position upon detecting a bullish FVG and adopting a short position in the presence of a bearish FVG.
The mitigation point is where the user selects when the FVG is considered filled or no longer usable.
Source => Choose the candle's low/high or close as the mitigation point.
Point => Choose the FVG's mitigation point to trigger after the candle's Source has filled it. Users can choose between the middle point or the top/bottom of the FVG.
This script can display MTF FVGs from different timeframes while showing the current one. This is extremely useful as it avoids the need to switch timeframes frequently and can add significant confluence with the current FVG.
The Threshold is an input to remove insignificant FVGs that are too small to be truly useful. Users can choose between:
Auto => Automatically remove unusable FVGs.
Manual => Set an automatic Threshold.
Users can choose how many FVGs to display on the current chart for better visualization.
Users can choose which FVGs to display: only the current one, only MTF ones, or both.
