Sweep institutional

This indicator focuses on identifying "SWEEPs" based on taking liquidity at highs and lows. The application of the SWEEP strategy is highly determinant in the Swing points, as they serve as the target of our operations.


🔹Example of Strategy Application

1.-Create the BULLISH SWEEP.
2.-You can enter LONG.
3.-If it is a BULLISH SWEEP, take a long with a SWING HIGH target (2-3 pips up).
4.-If it is a BULLISH SWEEP, place your SL behind the SWEEP (2-3 pips).

(This example is bullish, but it would be the same in a bearish setup, applying everything in the opposite way)

t's very crucial for the strategy to reference SWING POINTS, as these points will be our take profit and stop loss points.

The strategy is based on identifying a SWEEP. After this, we can look for trading opportunities with targets on the opposite side of the fractal. Remember, if you decide to enter, the Stop Loss should be placed protected by the Sweep, and the Take Profit should be set at the opposite Swing, as seen in the example.

Use this STRATEGY IN TIMEFRAMES GREATER THAN 30M. If you decide to use it in timeframes <30M, there's a higher probability of encountering false SWEEPs (the most optimal are 1h & 4h)


The Sweep strategy involves identifying potential trades based on the creation of a "SWEEP" (liquidity grab) at the Swing High or Swing Low. Below is an example of a bearish opportunity after taking liquidity from a Swing High with a wick and no candle body closing above it.


As you have seen, it indicates the surpassing of a high without the candle body, this is called a “SWEEP.” Each time this occurs, the price is likely to surpass the opposite SWING High/Low. The following example will show more clearly how it works in both bullish and bearish scenarios.
