a) various combinations of crossovers taken from the primeval_series to create a complete sequence of background colored-lines that subdivide into a portion
and a portion for directional identification
b) specific crossovers for predictive power in the form of directional flames located directly above the chart price (navy & yellow flames)
c) unique fast & slow combinations for momentum + strength in the form of power flames located directly above the chart price (orange, red, green, & lime flames)
when the alternation of flames are used in concert with the sequence of background colors, one can identify impending explosive price action, can better navigate through periods of slower activity, identify where they are currently in the trend's lifecycle and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, improve the TIMELINESS of entry and exit strategies
00. 01 - primeval_series - overview
the primeval_series is a group of transformed universally-renowned mathematical constants that have been transformed and embedded into a series of EMAs
each of these EMAs relates in some meaningful way to the "original wave' or 'wave_0': i.e. the wave that began at t=0, when humanity first made technological progress
the transformations made ensure that the inherent linkages to the original wave remain intact while being applicable to the structures inherent to indicator development
for the purposes of the alt-flames indicator, certain numbers selected from the primeval_series exist and are the basis of each , and calculation made herein
00.02 - alt-flames - best practices, and ideal targets
for best use: start with the for broad pattern, then use hourly going forward
ideal for swing trades, shorter-term options, and stocks that already have well-established uptrends, but have also started consolidating for 1+ week
patience is required to catch the ideal break, so best to use mildly OTM calls with at least 2 weeks on them before expiry.
for great use: pick out stocks that have recently broken out heavily from their . Do not enter until the retracement from the top has a defined local low
for average use: any sort of intraday play. this tool is meant for swing trades and sustained breakouts. picking out significant bottom reversals.
the portion is not geared for big reversals here. Rather, it is complementary to the sequences, which are at the core of the indicator
not useful for: shorting stocks that are trending downward or that are in sideways trends
