This indicator plots the shorter term (red) & medium term (green) cycles as channels. Some things to note:
- As you can see the red channel keeps moving with in the bounds of green channel. When green breaches red channel, it usually signifies extreme market condition.
- Both red & green channels provide levels. Also, the green channel provides S/R levels to the inner red channel.
- Movement of red channel with reference to green highlights reversal points, reducing momentum et al. For ex., point "(x)" in the chart shows how red channel failed to reach the upper green channel line and highlighted the local top.
Use this just like other bands/channels. I have more indicators derived from this idea, will post them later.
