What is an OrderBlock? It is simply Price where Banks (or Large Financial Entities) have Bought or Sold heavily (Support or Resistance Institutional Zone).
Our job as a trader is to monitor what the Banks and/or Large Investors are doing then patiently wait and have the opportunity to surf in their direction.
Large Financial Entities Buy during Price drops to get the best purchase Price. The Bank are acting a bit like us in our everyday life,
When we want Buying something, we always try to Buy it at the best price. And when we Sell, take the example of a used Car, we will systematically
try to Sell it at the highest possible Price. The Price of convertible Cars goes down during the Winter and goes up during the Summer.
So to make the best operation, if you Buy a second-hand convertible you will prefer to Buy it during the Winter and Sell it immediately in the Summer
and not Vice versa. So the way Large Institution act is exactly the same, it will expect the Price to Buy the fall and they will wait until
the Price rises in order to Sell. This is how the Profits will be made. The mistake that many Traders makes when they Trade emotionally is to act
in the opposite way of what they will do in everyday life. When we trade emotionally, we see the Price fall, instead of Buying while the Price drops we Sell.
In a similar emotional based act when the Price goes up we Buy, while when the Price goes up it's the best opportunity to Sell. So all the big moves
that you can watch on your different Instruments are the result of Banks or other Large Financial Entities. As Individuals, we do not have the necessary
“Strike Force” to create this type of movement. However, it is important to note that when Banks or Large Entities create this type of movement,
they do so despite theirs willing, they would love to be able to hide but luckily for us they can’t. When Billions of Dollars are Invested in Trades,
the effect can’t be concealed and as a result we will observe the impact on the market then as an Individual we’ll be able to see that on our Charts.
There are many ways to locate these areas of interest. But as they say, all roads lead to Rome. The purpose remains the Price Study
and in particular the movements of strong amplitude on the Chart. Large Financial Entities will keep acting in the same Price areas, Or at least we can say
that there's a high probability for them to intervene in these zones. Therefore, rather than chasing the Price moves and then to endure a counter move,
we will patiently wait until the Price returns to these areas on the basis that Banks and, or Large Entities will accumulate on their Positions
and are going to Sell and Buy in the same Price areas. Keep in mind that this logic works no matter what TimeFrame is used. However when the have Analysis
on Small TimeFrame (between M15 and H1) will make the movements observed between 20 and 50 Pips. Whereas if we look at H4 or Daily,
we can really see movements of 100 or even 200 Pips.
The ZigZag Indicator is used to illustrate Trend Lines without taking into account intermediate Retracements.
In a way, it allows you to get to the point by giving a simplified view of the evolution of Prices by eliminating "parasitic" movements, and thus to Position
and unwind Positions at the appropriate times. It is part of the category of Trend Indicators. We will simply define a Level of Price variation below which
they will not be taken into account by the indicator. This will eliminate all minor fluctuations, depending on the desired sensitivity.
The Indicator can only have 2 directions, Up or Down. For example, setting the Indicator to 5% (ZigZag Length ) will eliminate all variations below 5%.
If the Trend is Bullish and the Indicator therefore oriented in the same direction, Prices will have to fall by at least 5% for the direction
of the ZigZag to reverse Downward. Why using ZigZag to search for our OrderBlock? ZigZag makes it possible to clearly identify the current Trend as well
as significant Reversals and therefore have a much clearer vision of the actions carried out by Banks / Large Entities. However, it is drawn up
a posteriori and therefore does not make it possible to predict the evolution of Prices. The turning points are Indicated with a delay proportional
to the chosen sensitivity. The indicator calculates the Lowest Price over the given Period and eliminates Prices that are below the minimum requested
Array Size. Then, it calculates the Highest Price over the given Period and eliminates the Prices that are below the minimum requested Array Size.
Finally, it draws the Trend Line that connects the High and Low points determined previously and use the sum of the two to determinate the Range area.
█ HOW TO INTERPRET?
• The Indicator creates Lines that demonstrate past Retracements and current Pivots Levels to get a clearer view of the next Retracement area
using the Lines from the Last High and Low Pivots to determine which Take-Profit or Stop-Loss set.
• The "OrderBlocks" are detected based on the Pivots founds. You can display the Prices and use theses to help you set your Take-Profit during Retracement.
• Possibility to display the Levels of detected Pivots point. This can permit to dispense with the use of Elliot Waves or the use of a Fibonacci.
• Donchian ZigZag Channels to be sure to always have seen the extremities of the Top, Bottom and Range area.
• The ZigZag Length is set to 5 by default. You will have to adjust it according to selected TimeFrame or Financial Instrument used.
• The ZigZag has 3 adjustable colors:
-Green = Bullish Trend
-Red = Bearish Trend
-Orange = Range Zone
It is not advisable to enter Position when the ZigZag color indicates a Range Zone.
-ZigZag + Pivots Point
-Donchian ZigZag Channel
Following the request of many users on our other script concerning the late arrival of Alerts for detected OrderBlocks (on Institutional OrderBlock Pressure), we fixed this problem here with the arrival INSTAN and CONFIRM ALERTS.
-This script is not beginner's Level and is intended for Traders with advanced knowledge of ZigZag and the work of Michael j. Huddleston on the OrderBlocks.
Good Trade everyone and remember, risk management remains the most important!
-Improved ZigZag Calculation.
-Added Percentage Change (The higher the value, the greater the difference between the detected OBs.)
-Added Linear Regression Filter (Uses linear regression to filter out OBs. The volumes must be available on the financial instrument used.)
-Added the ability to choose the transparency rate for ZigZag Channels.
-Added 'Wait For Bar Close' option. (Enabled by default)
on the Candle where they should be. Including the Price displayed in the Labels of the detected OrderBlocks (and also the one displayed in the Alerts).
This is why, from now on, the Lines are granted to the Signals at the 'Unconfirmed' OrderBlocks' in order to have them all in view and the same concerning
the Price displayed in the Labels, it now corresponds to the Price of the previous Candle and therefore the correct Price at the OrderBlock
detected in intra-bar (which they have a correct Offset).
-Addition of an option allowing to link the retracements lines to the detected "OrderBlocks" (by default) or to the "Pivots" points.
-A category 'Alerts Setup' has been added in the settings in which you have the possibility to select the Alerts that you want to enable or not. (You must do this before placing the alert).
-An Alert option has been added for when the Top/Bottom Retracement Line has been crossed.
-ZigZag Length has been set to 4 by default.
-Bug fix in the 'ZigZag' Retracement Lines logic (Disabling the 'Wait For Close' option is now working for them).
-Added Alerts for 'Harmonic Patterns'.
-Complete Colors, Styles and Sizes is now fully customizable.
-Added 'Cloud Channels Lines Crossed Alerts' option.
-Added an option to see Top/Middle/Bottom Channels Price beside lines.
-Removed 'Bar Time' option cause TV have his own default option for that.
-'Linear Regression Filter' option has been temporary removed cause it need some improvements.
-Minor improvements in OrderBlocks detection algorithm.
-'Projection Forecast' has been disabled by default
