Rob Hoffman's Inventory Retracement Bar - by UCSgears

Claims by Rob Hoffman
Developed and used to win trading competitions around the world, the Hoffman Inventory Retracement Trade is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to identify where short-term counter trend institutional inventory has subsided and when it’s time to re-enter into a trade’s original trend direction.

I have not included the TREND condition.

Hey, thank you for this indicator! Could you please update it with a simple trend filter (price above / below a 20 EMA for example)? That would be great!

This is an interesting study. I tried to paste into TOS and got an error. Is this study available in their directory? The article is quite interesting also. I have always hoped I could look at certain candle formations to get insights. This was intriguing.
