Hobble Skirt Bottom Impede Fashion (by ChartArt)

A very noisy indicator to detect bottoms and new uptrends.
Original idea by ChartArt.

First published indicator - constructive criticism welcome.
(The indicator is experimental and doesn't work most of the time.)

I would describe it as an "coincident indicator". The signals occur at approximately the same time as the conditions it signifies. Rather than predicting future events it changes at the same time to the upside as possible bottoms show up.

P.S. hobble skirt is a syllable of chart, that is how I came up with the name
"A hobble skirt was a skirt with a narrow enough hem to significantly impede the wearer's stride, and was a short-lived fashion trend around the turn of the twentieth century."

P.P.S. Bottoms are also short-lived...
