Institutional Patterns (Expo)

Zeiierman Updated   
The Institutional Patterns indicator is designed to identify and track trading patterns associated with accumulation and distribution primarily used by institutional traders. By analyzing the behavior of large institutional investors and their trading activity, the indicator provides valuable insights into the underlying forces driving the market.

How is calculated?
The indicator analyzes various elements such as accumulation/distribution, volume, price action, and liquidity levels to recognize patterns typical of institutional trading activities.

How to use
  • Accumulation/Distribution Areas: The indicator identifies zones where large institutional players are accumulating or distributing their positions, providing users with a clearer understanding of the market's supply and demand dynamics.
  • Market Tops/Bottoms: The indicator can detect signs of market exhaustion or reversal, highlighting potential market tops and bottoms.
  • Trend Identification: The indicator analyzes the trading patterns of institutional investors to determine the overall market direction, allowing users to identify prevailing trends easily. By trading in the direction of the dominant trend, traders can increase their probability of success and improve their overall risk-reward ratio.

  • Pre-institutional activity
  • Institutional Trend activity
  • Institutional Accumulation/Distribution activity
