How To Use:
- Spotting Consolidation: When you see a box form on your chart, this represents a consolidation zone. Within this zone, the price is moving sideways without a strong upward or downward trend.
- Anticipating Breakouts & Breakdowns: Watch the price as it approaches the edges of the box. A movement outside the box can signal a potential breakout (if above the box) or a breakdown (if below the box). This is where momentum shifts can happen.
- Momentum Confirmation: Once the price clearly moves out of the box, it indicates a momentum shift. If the price moves upwards out of the box, this can be seen as bullish momentum. Conversely, if the price moves downwards out of the box, this can be seen as bearish momentum.
To use the tool effectively, adjust the settings to suit your trading style, choose your preferred visual theme, and watch as the script highlights key consolidation areas on your chart.
Tip: To visualize fractals, consider using multiple instances of the "Consolidation Spotter" indicator, each set to a different timeframe. This approach allows you to observe consolidations nested within larger consolidations, offering deeper insights into market structures. 😉
