TICK Strength Background Shade

This indicator shades the background of each candle based on the strength off the current TICK.US chart. User can define the strength levels, which are by default set to 1-299 (lightest), 300-599, and 600+ (darkest). Best used on lower timeframe charts to help identify whether or not to remain in a trend, or if a trend is possibly reversing when you start to see the opposite color begin to appear following a trend.
