Koalafied Initial Balance Levels and Extensions

Shows the Initial Balance and range extensions for either the Daily session or individual market sessions (Asia, London, New York).

Initial Balance is the range represented by the first two segments (typically half-hour segments) of a trading session. Range extensions are a function of the longer-term trader participation, pushing price outside of the beginning 'fair' range established by the local traders. With the introduction of 24/7 markets the initial balance is often now regarded as less important than in the past, however re-calculating IB for multiple trading sessions may reinstitute insight to Market Direction and Confidence
