Release Notes: v.2 added two alerts "Strong Buy" and "Strong Short"
Release Notes: v.2 dd. 1-18-2022
The indicator keeps checking conditions of different signals every tick. If you watch 5 min bar or 60 min bar it could happen that price drops under support and the indicator generates sell signal. However, price may recover in couple of minutes later and that bar can be closed on a level over the critical support. In that case you may see signal vanished by the time this bar is closed. That is not repainting. You can either watch how many minutes are left before the real time bar is closed or you can activate in the settings of the indicator option: "Only Show Signals Upon Closed Bar").
If you activate that feature the indicator will not show you signals until after a bar that triggered that signal is not closed.

Added identification of directional bias.
(i) Bullish directional bias
When the algo identifies that bulls overpower bears it starts painting all candles in the dark green color. When the directional bias is bullish all candles are colored in green color and the symbol name is colored in the green color. When the directional bias is bullish every new cyclical support becomes an attractive long setup for an upcoming up cycle with a stop under the cyclical support. When the directional bias is bullish probability for overshot of support is limited.
(i) Bearish directional bias
When the algo identifies that bears overpower bulls it starts painting all candles in the dark red color.
When the directional bias is bearish all candles are colored in red color and the symbol name is colored in the red color. When the directional bias is bearish every new cyclical resistance becomes an attractive short setup for an upcoming down cycle with a stop over the cyclical resistance. When the directional bias is bearish probability for overshot of resistance is limited.
Release Notes: 2 April 2022
Two new types of signals have been added.
The first type of signals is a great way to trade breakouts and breakdowns:
I called that signal Add Short and Add Long.
The Add Short signal (purple labels) gets triggered when bears manage to break under support and then price produces a flat consolidation under broken support.
The Add Long signal (olive labels) gets triggered when bulls manage to break over resistance and then price spend some time consolidating before making another push higher.
The second new type of signals is called "Reload Short" and "Reload Long". The labels are colored in black.
If you want to see alerts for those new signals use the same alerts as for Strong Buy and Strong Sell signals.
