Wick-off Check Moving Average [Misu]

This Indicator shows a wick-off check pattern applied to a moving average. 
This pattern appears when a candle opens below the moving average and closes above it, or when it opens above a moving average and closes below it. This causes a wick to go through the moving average: a wick-off check moving average. 

This indicator detects small pullbacks in a trend. This is mainly used for trading continuation strategies. 
It can also be used to validate a resistance or support level .
