Institutional OrderBlock Pressure

RickSimpson Premium Updated   
OVERVIEW

OrderBlocks are areas where Banks take a Short or Long position. So they create a movement that they would like to hide from us, but luckily for us they cannot. Take the example of Banks opening Short position for x reason. The Trend is already Bearish . The Price will fall and then make a Reversal
(most often to the price where they opened their positions) and it is at this precise moment that they will again resume a Short position twice as
large because for the moment, following this example it is not in their interest that the Price exceeds a certain Price since they are Seller.
As a result they create a solid Resistance (the strongest it is). There are several ways to interpret this logic, we can try to follow the movement of Banks
or on the contrary take advantage of the recovery of the course. Note that not having level 2 and access to the order book from TradingView we can only
make a rough estimate of the "OrderBlocks" through VPOC.


HOW TO INTERPRET?

• The Labels displayed by "Red Arrow" and "Green Arrow" represent supposed Bearish or Bullish OrderBlock. Note that you should not in any way interpret these "Arrows" as Signals to Buy or Sell for the reasons mentioned above.
• The OB Line works according to detected OrderBlock Candle. These lines indicate the potential recovery area. (The highlighted lines and candles are white by default).
• It is better to use this indicator on Higher TimeFrame like 2H or 4H.
• You can change the Volume Ratio (here VPOC) which is 89 by default.
• There is a Customization section that allows you to change the colors of the Lines and Candles from White to Black depending on your background color (Light or Dark).
• YES the indicator is Repainting and YES you can have False Alerts since Labels appear in intra-bar!

ALERTS

• In fact we don't really need Alerts for the logic of this indicator except maybe to get the Price of the last OB Detected and to keep this price in your Alert History and may use it later. Some improvements will come in future with updates and we have already planned to add Alerts when a "Line Cross" gone occur.

If you notice any bugs or if you have any suggestions, don't be hateful gangs ;)
Happy trading everyone and remember, risk management is the most important!

Uups, in the last update i forgot to mention theses additional lines are statics cause they are on a ratio factor of 25 and they are static to allow a better balance and more confirmations and information on OrderBlocks.

====== ! Huge Update ! ======

-Completely changed algorithm which now works by being based on Price Action and work much better than before. You still have the choice to use volumes in addition to Price Action. As a result, new settings and change are also appearing :

-You can use any timeframe you want.
-Settings and Advanced Settings are separated in different sections now.
-Volume Ratio has been set on 6 by default since we do not using 0.618 Pivot anymore here.
-Engulfement Size is the Size in percentage to detect a Engulfement Candle.

If you encounter any bugs or have any suggestions, as usual, don't hesitate!

FINAL UPDATE OF THE WEEK

-Done.
Release Notes:
I know what you're thinking, what? Another update when yesterday I said it was the last of the week? Indeed ! But this is for the good of the community. When I launched the new version some people asked me to go back to the old one, which I did not really understand why since I know the new algorithm is better. But I finally understood why and that's why today there is this exclusive update. We have tried to simplify the settings as much as possible and to satisfy everyone. So we summarize:

-The new version no longer works with volumes but with Price Action (which will also allow you to be able to use the indicator where volume data is not available.
-Settings and Advanced Settings are separated in different sections now.
-Engulfement Size is the Size in percentage to detect a Engulfement Candle.
-Pin Bar Tolerance corresponds to the percentage value of the Pin Bar to be considered.
-Offset is how many candles must be counted to consider an OB as valid (5 by default).

Thanks again to everyone for your feedback and those who have followed me from the start know that I work hard to keep everyone happy.
Hoping that this update will satisfy the greatest number!

Cheers

-Code cleaning.
Release Notes:

Release Notes:

Release Notes:
-V1.5 :

and access with level 2 but the closest approximation that we can make of it. The option is accompanied by a tooltip.
Many thanks to who gave me permission to reuse and implement his "Tape" script.


I invite you to consult the page of the original script if you wish to learn more. We have simplified the settings as much as possible (and left them by default voluntarily) so as not to numb the indicator completely with settings. The option is disabled by default.

-Cheers

(but for those who still not understand how to use the indicator, know even a 5 bars delayed alert is not a problem cause we're NOT following signals but using lasts historical OB Detected as zone of retracement (like S/R do), so for example, if you have a Bearish OB detected DO NOT Sell ! Simply wait for a retracement to BUY until the last Bearish OB Price detected earlier. That's all.
With this update we have changed the offset to 2 candles to have alerts more quickly with increasing a lil bit the percentage move to filter lines.
-Removed 'Bar Time' option cause TV already have an built-in option for that.

-Lines Price alignement correction.
