The indicator determinants when an asset price is getting higher or lower by comparing the previous price highs and lows to the current price.
In case current HL2 exceeds the previous HL2 HIGH then the columns will turn green.
In case current HL2 fails the previous HL2 LOW then the columns will turn red.
The trick here is that the trend CONTINUES to show the greens and reds, until a reversal happens to the opposite side.
This can be used to determinate trends and reversals.
Note: Bar colors are disabled by default.
You can set the lookback period at the indicator settings as well as the asset source ( HL2 ,CLOSE, etc..). default is HL2
