Muqwishi Volumetric Candle


Have you ever heard that each candle represents a battle between bulls (buyer) and bears (seller)? If you know the answer, apparently you understand what the price action means. What if I ask you, how much was bloody in each battle between bulls and bears?!. This indicator may give a clear picture of how to identify the candle’s strength by implementing the Standard Deviation on volume and reshape the candle.
The Muqwishi Volumetric Candles indicator works to weigh each candle instantaneously and updates its color level from lightness to darkness based on the rate of the volumetric standard deviation.

Here’s how the idea started with the conceptual design, then improved till achieved to the implemented design of a structured candle.

The conceptual design mentioned for reviewing how the idea started. However, I want you to understand the “implemented design” in which the indicator has been built to address it. As I stated structurally for the implemented design section, wick and border are identified by the user through “Chart Properties” unlike core and body is measured by the indicator.
The candle’s body is ”Dynamic” that colored based on the amount of volume standard deviation in which the low volume standard deviation is a lighter candle’s color and the high volume standard deviation is a darker candle’s color. The core is “Static” color represents zero volume standard deviation which the volume at the average level. In the case where the core is darker than the body means the volume standard deviation is lower than the average volume level, and when the core is lighter than the body mean the volume standard deviation is higher than the average volume level, and when the core’s color has the same body’s color means the volume is in the average level. The image is the best guide to understand the idea.

Rarely seeing a volume standard deviation below -2σ, even though the volume is apparently dead. However, it’s possible to see more than 3.9σ, and mostly it has the same effect as 3.9σ. Personally, any candle above 1.5σ is taking my attention, and more than 2σ I look around seeking for reasons to not take a trade.

§§ Note, if you have misunderstood the standard deviation concept, there are many great sources to understand it such as Wikipedia, YouTube,... etc. In a basic example, How much is your height relative to the height of average people in your city!!?. Similarly, how much is the amount of volume relative to the average volume of a number series of previous bars?!.

Indicator Overview
Before I get into this section, this is NOT meant to be an educational or recommendation. Just showing you how I use this indicator based on an experience.
The chart above has been remarked as an example of how I apply it. Again, it’s a personal preference, and it doesn’t mean this’s an efficient way.

Indicator Setting
➤ Ensure to visualize the indicator to the front for recognition of the candle’s core.
For more information check the image:

➤ Indicator’s title.
Generates two outputs. The first one is the coordinate location for the char “Core”, don’t pay attention to it. The second one colored in blue is referring to the measurement of the volume standard deviation as your cursor point move at any candle on the chart. For more information check the image:

➤ Indicator’s inputs.
■ Length: Number of previous bars covered in the calculation. Prefer between 14-20.

■ Long Candle Color: Choose a color for bullish candles.
■ Short Candle Color: Choose a color for bearish candles.
■ Color Mode: Kinda color style.
● Lightness: From lightness to darkness colored as low volume SD to high volume SD .
● Saturation: From narrow range to wide range colored as low volume SD to high volume SD .
■ Reverse Mode: Yes → Darkness to Lightness colored as low SD to high SD .
■ Show Core: No → Hide cores.

■ Users should have a fundamental knowledge of Standard Deviation.
■ The candle’s body is dynamic colored. Got light as low volume standard deviation, and Dark as high volume standard deviation occurred.
■ The Candle’s core is static colored. Represents the average volume which Standard Deviation equals zero.
■ This’s not a trading signal. It works to visualize the level of transactions made per candle.

Final Comments
■ My goal was to achieve the conceptual design, but there’re many obstacles that go beyond the coding ability.
■ Let me know if you have any questions, comments, and any improvements to the project.

■ Trade Safe. ✌
