This indicator is a visual aid that shows you the or of market so you can see the trend without switching charts. When goes up, most stocks go down and vice versa. When the cloud turns green, it is a sign. When the cloud turns red, it is a sign.
This indicator is meant for stocks with a lot of price action and , so for best results, use it on charts that move similar to the S&P 500 or other similar charts.
This indicator uses real time data from the stock market overall, so it should only be used on stocks and will only give a few signals during after hours. It does work ok for crypto, but will not give signals when the US stock market is closed.
**HOW TO USE**
When the Index trend changes direction, it will give a green or red line on the chart depending on which way the is now trending. The cloud will also change color depending on which way the is trending. Use this to determine overall market and place trades in the direction that the indicator is showing. Do not use this by itself as sometimes markets won’t react perfectly to the overall market . It should only be used as a secondary confirmation in your trading/trend analysis.
For more signals with earlier entries, go into settings and reduce the number. 10-100 is best for scalping. For less signals with later entries, change the number to a higher value. Use 100-500 for swing trades. Can go higher for long swing trades. Our favorite settings are 20, 60, 100, 500 and 1000.
This indicator should only be used on the US stock markets as signals are given based on the index which measures of the US Stock Markets.
This indicator works on all time frames, but after hours will not change much at all due to the markets being closed.
If you are using this on an inverse and the signals are showing backwards, please comment with what chart it is and I will configure the indicator to give the correct signals. I have included over 50 inverse ETFs into the code to show the correct signals on inverse charts, but I'm sure there are some that I have missed so feel free to let me know and I will update the script with the requested tickers.
